But not everyone with lupus anticoagulant has recurrent miscarriages. Some people may have natural protective factors. And most people with one miscarriage will have a normal work-up & normal next pregnancy. So we usually test for it after 2 miscarriages. ...Read more

Drugs like Aspirin and clopidogrel (plavix) prevent platelets from forming the initial stages of a clot. Drugs like warfarin (coumadin) and dabigatran (pradaxa) block the later process ...Read more
