Hi ashton91213,

Here is an article about antiphospholipid syndrome that you may find helpful. This condition has been linked to some cases of miscarriage, but your doctor can treat you with blood thinning medicines during pregnancy to prevent clotting problems and reduce the risk of pregnancy loss. You should speak with your doctor about what this diagnosis means for future pregnancies, and what you may need to try and avoid any complications.

Best wishes,
Atti
