    I didn’t have any indicated symptom of blood clot. My phospholipid test and lupus anticoagulant test were negative but my DR still prescribed Clexane (daily dose of 400 mg) plus aspirin. Despite transferring the best grade (5AA) of embryo I still had a miscarriage at 5 weeks. Any advice whether I should take Clexane during my next embryo transfer? The DR who gave a second opinion said using it without any indicated symptom might result in an opposite outcome and he commented that this is a dangerous drug that could cause bleeding in the brain.

    After 3 miscarriages in 2020 I went through blood tests and was found to have antiphospholipid Syndrome (blood clotting disorder).
    Pregnant again now in may 2021 currently 8 weeks and ive started taking clexane 40mg and asprin 75mg as soon as I had the faintest positive (around 3 weeks pregnant). Everything looking good so far, had a scan at 7 weeks.
    I have heard lots of success stories and clexane sounds like a miracle drug!

    I’ve been advised that I can stop taking clexane 40mg when I hit 12 weeks (in 1.5 weeks). Though I can see a lot of women used it until labour… I am worried if I stop it may cause issues – anyone else stopped after first trimester ??

    I have had 2 miscarriages in the past & 1 successful ivf pregnancy where i used clexane until a day before labour

    Last month tried home insemination and got a positive pregnancy result but ended in a chemical pregnancy.

    Done home insemenation yesterday again. Do i use clexane now to help with implantation or when a positive pregnancy result is received?

      I have the same problem, 3 miscariages and now I take Clexane injection every day. Now I have 32 weeks.
      My question is how you did delivery? Natural or cezarian and how many weeks did you rich?

    I took it during my pregnancy and ended up having premature loss. I’m glad o won’t be on it next time. It’s the only thing that my consultant to attribute to why I went into labour. It’s useful if you have a clotting disorder, but otherwise I strongly believe more research is needed on the link if clexane and pregnancy.

    After year of marriage uncontrolled relations we started to try fertilization, that took many attempts and just when my wife used Clexane she got pregnant of twins. After the babies were born we didn’t care about protection, as we knew she would “never” get that luck again. At some time (2 years) she had a thrombophlebitis and the doctor prescribed Clexane again, and what happened? She got pregnant again, without any treatment except Clexane. After the big news I ran for a vasectomy !

    Hi I have done about 4 embryo transfers using DE. In two of the transfers I got pregnant but miscarried. They suddenly just stop. This time I was on both clexane 40 and aspirin. It sounded a bit too much. I am prone to thrombophilia but not V Leiden. I found my self in the night I wasn’t able to breathe kind of like a panic attack. Also I was having really bad contraction of the uterus a week after clexane and had some sort of orange fluid leaking.

    hi i need to know how many dose does a person need to take?

    I am going through DE transfer treatment and have been prescribed Clexane amongst other meds. I have a blood clotting deficiency meaning my blood doesnt clot quick enough so blood thinners are a big no no for me. discussed with my IVF doctor and she maintains i should just follow the treatment protocol which feel to me as a “one size fits all” approach. Due to issues ive had in the past i am reluctant to start clexane but also dont want to mess up this treatment. any advise would be appreciated.

      Doesn’t sound like your dr should have done this. What is your update?

    I struggle massively with administering the fragmin. Why can’t it be produced using a smaller, thinner, user friendly needle?

    I’m taking clexane after embryo transfer but no progesterone was prescribed. Will be a problem if progesterone is not taken

      Hey did you have a succesful pregnancy. I have miscarried 3 times and now on my 4th pregnancy and just started clexane 20mg

    A tip for using clexane from my hematologist – press really hard on the injection site. It minimizes the bruising
