No: If you are pregnant and taking a blood thinner, I say stop. There are cases when a patient needs to take Aspirin when pregnant for a condition. This Clexane is something for blood clots so i don't know why you are on it while pregnant. Please ask your Obstetrician.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

There are several conditions in pregnancy where this medication is prescribed but it is imperative that you know how to give the medication correctly. You need to be instructed on how to use it.
