I am 4 months in after DVT & pe's. Last scsn showed scan showed clot still present. Groin. When will it be safe to have sex again?
I have been taking treatment for DVT more than 10 years. Acitrom& preem16 are the drugs taking regularly. Will it affect my sex life? Can I gve birth?
No, yes: Acitrom is an anticoagulant similar to warfarin. You are taking because you had a blood clot at a very early age. It is unusual to have a DVT at 17 and it could be related to a genetic reason that you clot more than other people. Only you and your doctor know if you have a clotting problem that needs lifelong anticoagulation, it is possible. You might stop the drug prior to delivery if pregnant.
Family practice: There maybe another DVT you are referring to, but DVT usually refers to deep vein thrombosis. This is a blood clot in the big veins that potentially can move up to your lung causing a pulmonary embolus. This is serious, deadly. Need to be treated with medication that prevents further blood clots.See 5 more doctor answers

Three ways: 1. History and physical exam. If your history and examination are suspicious that it might be a dvt, then you need a 2. D-dimer. A blood test is done. If it is very low, you don't have a dvt. If it is high you might have a DVT and you need an 3. Ultrasound scan. As dr. Salartash said, this is the gold standard test. The ultimate way to check for a DVT is ultrasound.See 5 more doctor answers
