Post A reason for my miscarriages
Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome or APS is an autoimmune disorder in which the body recognizes certain normal components of blood and/or cell membranes as foreign substances and produces antibodies against them. Patients with these antibodies may experience blood clots, including heart attacks and strokes, and miscarriages. APS may occur in people with systemic lupus erythematosus, other autoimmune diseases, or in otherwise healthy individuals.

APS is also known as APLS, APLA, Hughes Syndrome or "Sticky Blood."


SO!!!!! this is what i have, and its treatable by having clexane injections...so the action plan is that as soon as i know im pregnant to contact the specialist and i will see his nurse either that day or the next, and i will start the injections straight away, and will be on them till the end of the pregnancy.

the best part is that as from now im under the highrisk clinic in wgtn hospital as my specialist runs it...oh and i will have to be on these injections for all pregnancies. :D :D :D :D

He did also say that there was a very high chance i would need to have a section again, due to my blood pressure and other things...but thats okay as long as my baby is happy and healthy

Hi Kaz, I am so pleased to hear that you finally have an answer!! Albeit, bittersweet, but you know what I mean! I have done some research on Clexane because that's what they are looking at putting me on soon. PM me if you want a good old clexane chat!!

I'm so happy for you that you have an answer now Kaz. Especially that they can treat it and will take special care of you in the high risk clinic. That really is good news.
