Could you take heparin/lovenox when pregnant?

Could you take heparin/lovenox when pregnant?

Yes, you can: Unfractionated Heparin and low molecular weight Heparin are safe and useful drugs during pregnancy for women with increased risk for having blood clots. A history of having a blood clot or a strong family history of a blood clot associated with a familial thrombophila disorder are indicators for the prophylactic use of heparins. These agents can be used throughout pregnancy, but if low molecular weight heparins are used, a switch to unfractionated Heparin is required if epidural anesthesia is considered for labor and delivery, because of risk of epidural hematoma if low molecular weight Heparin was used within 24 hours before delivery. Since onset of labor is unpredictable, most obstetricians will make the switch at 36 weeks gestation. A discussion with your obstetrician before pregnancy or early in pregnancy about management with Heparin should help alleviate concerns you have about its use. ...Read more
