What to do if someone has atrial septal aneurysm and is 13 weeks pregnant. What are some treatments?

Depends. Atrial septal aneurysm (asm) can be associated with irregular heart beats and occaisionally strokes. This depends on the type of asm you have. This can be treated with a blood thinner like aspirin. However, being pregnant may change your treatment options. You should discuss this with your OB and cardiologist.
