Basics: The risk of such meds are minimal if/when the prescribing source has done a detailed family & personal medical history. This detail would reveal any predisposing factors that would suggest need for any lab to rule out a clotting susceptibility. If there are none, risk is minimized. You would not be able to change your personal risk.
