Patient :Hi. I am currently 7 weeks pregnant with a strong heartbeat of 146. I do have pai-1 gene mutation and taking a blood thinner, aspirin, and meteor min daily. My RE wants me to stop blood thinner and aspirin at 12 weeks. Shouldn't I be on it longer to avoid possible clotting later pregnancy? How long do you suggest your patients to be on the blood thinners/aspirin that have same disorder as me?
