Von Willebrand


Posted by HMH

I was diagnosed with von willebrand last week; today I found out I was pregnant.  I've never had complications with my first 3 preganancy; but my fourth preganancy 6 months ago I miscaried.  I'm concerned that the last pregnancy was do to my von willebrand and I would like to know if I'm high risk for carrying the child and what should I do regarding this diagnosis for example: medications I should be taking during my pregnancy since my platelet levels are very low?

 

Thank You

Heather H

This is a situation where you are going to have to work with several different doctors to determine what would be best for you and your prenatal care.

 

Speak to your OB/GYN, Primary Care Physican, and whomever is in charge of your care as far as "von willebrand" is concerned
