Not incompatible: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, normal chromosomes do not rule out mutation in one or more genes or acquired disorders.

My test says my chromosomes are perfect but my thrombophilia was showing "above average" - What does this mean?

Thrombophilia genes: Thrombophilia you refer to is the inheirited type of tendency to form blood clotting. This is due to certain gene defects affecting clotting factor levels necessary in the reactions for clot formation. Above average is a nebulous term. See a physician familiar with this or a hematologist to evaluate just what level is your risk. You will be asked about blood clot or miscarriages in family history.
