In brief: Complications

Women who are prone to forming blood clots may have a hard time carrying a pregnancy.
Blood clots can cause complications for the fetus because of interference with blood flow through the placenta, for example. If you have a history of blood clots and wish to get pregnant, you might consider speaking to your ob/gyn.
