In brief: Not common

People with this genetic disorder seem to have a higher number of miscarriages, which is what usually inspires testing for it.
We treat these patients with aspirin, sometimes blood thinners and sometimes steroids. There is greater risk for prematurity and small fetuses, but under treatment, most will have successful outcomes.
