In brief: Hypercoagulable

One of the functions of the blood, when appropriate, is to create clots.
Hypercoagulable means that the blood is forming clots too often, and inappropriately. This can happen for many reasons due to a genetic disorder or from autoimmune disease or post-surgery or even pregnancy.
