I agree, it's super hard to find any information on Protein S. I'll keep looking for the both of us. I got the rest of my blood work back yesterday and I also have a Factor V. Leiden mutation and tested positive for anti-nuclear antibodies. Not good news. I guess no babies for me...
First of all, I'm so sorry for the loss of your baby! Absolutely heartbreaking, I know. . .
Second, have you met with a MFM since your pregnancy? I too have Protein S deficiency and MTHFR. I'm currently pregnant again - 34 weeks :) - and there is no sign of pre-e so far. Fwiw, my sister was also tested after my HELLP pregnancy since some clotting disorders are inherited - she, too, has Protein S deficienc. Her MFM encouraged her to get pregnant when she is ready but said that she will need to be on blood thinners too.
GL, whatever you decide.
