Mutations result from unrepaired damage to dna or to RNA genomes (typically caused by radiation or chemical mutagens), from errors in the process of replication, or from the insertion or deletion of segments of dna ...Read more

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
No: Both are very common and this is probably a coincidence. The factor v gene isn't part of the pathway by which new vessels form, and this speaks against there being any correlation. There are a few other genetic syndromes with distinctive hemangiomas, but factor v has not been linked to any. ...Read more
Possibly progestin : Generally, you have a 6 fold increase risk of a clot in the leg or lung. Adding estrogen/ progestin birth control pills increase the risk by between 15 x to 80 x- if you received a factor from one parent or two, respectively. The risk is unacceptably high- more than getting pregnant. The literature seems to indicate that a progestin only pill or an iud without hormone is safer. ...Read more

This is assuming that your mother does not have the mutation. Even heterozygotes/carriers have about 5 fold greater risk of thrombosis. T. ...Read more

My sis tested (+) factor V Leiden and her Dr suggested I get tested. I was fixing to start Clomid (clomiphene) 4 secondary hypergonadism. R SERMS contraindicated?
FH Leiden factor: Estrogens increase the risk of clotting. Clomid (clomiphene) is a non steroidal selective estrogen receptor modulator.It is not an estrogen. It has not been associated with significant increase in clotting to date, so should be OK. With FH of Leiden positive (I assume means deficient in Leiden V) which increases the risk of clots, get tested and let your doctor know of the results prior to starting. ...Read more
