See you doctor: You need to see your doctor right away to determine the status of your pregnancy and also to see how your anticoagulant therapy should be managed. It depends on why you are on Coumadin (warfarin) in the first place and what your risks are during pregnancy. Many women will switch to injectable form of anticoagulant during pregnancy as these do not cross the placenta to affect the baby. ...Read more

Yes: If you have regular periods then increasing the dose of Clomid (clomiphene) may work. If you have irregular periods and you ovulated on 50mg - an increased dose is not needed (risks more multiple births)- and simply work with your gyn to repeat the months on Clomid (clomiphene) for about 3-4 months. After that further investigation will be effective. ...Read more

Only the elderly can have subacute spinal degeneration from inadequate vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) while taking excessive folic acid. ...Read more
