What causes blood to not clot?

Antithrombin: The body has a complex system of clotting and anti clotting cascades. The principle anticlotting proteins are Antithrombin which in turn requires other cofactors to function properly. Once a clot begins to form, plasmin becomes activated which breaks down clot. Whether a clot forms or not is a race between the pro-clotting and anti-clotting pathways.

Medical treatment: Assuming you are diagnosing yourself, as a newly diagnosed bloot clot needs to be treated with medication to prevent further problems. Heparin in the hospital setting with eventual transition (possibly with Lovenox (enoxaparin) bridging) to Coumadin (warfarin sodium) is a common treatment, and now there are newer products like xarelto also fda approved. Discuss treatments with you dr asap. Good luck.
