Clotting hx ?'s: Pregnancy with a history of clotting is treated usually with Lovenox or heparin for effective reduction of clotting incidence. Both medications are effective , with minimal complications and dependable effectiveness. Increased clotting in pregnancy is b/c of increased agents produced during pregnancy, and treatment may prevent significant negative effects for the fetus.
