In brief: No

Apa, along with lupus anti-coagulant antibody, are two antibodies that attack the areas in the cell wall of growing tissue, especially the fast-growing placental tissue of an early pregnancy.
It is estimated that 1-5% of the american population has apa syndrome. The most worrisome effects are miscarriage and blood clot disorders.
