Common Questions and Answers about Lovenox and bleeding

lovenox

I hope I don't cause them the pain of loss and worry I endured with them and their angel brothers and sisters. And since my last c-section was so last second I worry ifvtge force me to have another one something could go wrong? I take pain well and am overall healthy I just don't want to worry my family I like worse case scenarios so I can prepare myself and them for it. I've not been near death but I am rare and many complications confuse all doctors I've seen.
And then he said no shots for 24 hours. I got induced and right the next day started lovenox shots again for 6 more weeks..
I am also on Lovenox and do injections everyday (to prevent blood clots). I am not sure about when to stop it for a c-section, but I have a question for you..........I am only 5 weeks, but when I'm further along and my tummy is sticking out, how to you give yourself injections on your sides? I don't go to the doctor till Aug. 1, so I just thought I'd ask here first. Good luck to you and these ladies sure do have great advise!
Anyway, they also gave me torodol for the pain (I believe 48 hours worth Could there have been an interaction between toradol and lovenox to cause the bleeding? It has caused very high INRs for me in the past. They are saying that I now have a sensitivity to lovenox. What would be my alternatives to bridge if and when I need it? Or, is it simply the toradol interaction?
With my two full term pregnancies I used heparin because my insurance wouldn't pay for it and it was very expensive. So now I have medicaid and the doc has perscribed me lovenox.
I am going to a different hospital for oncology and they want me to discontinue Warfarin 7 days before and use a Lovenox bridge injection for the interim. I called my regular EP and they say no need. What would you do? 7 days seems a long time without blood thinner -- I'm on it because I'm at risk for strokes, right? Any comments and/or advice would be welcome. Also, any pep talks welcome!
We are currently TTC after 2 miscarriages and a healthy baby girl 2010 (on heparin shots). My doctor has me on Lovenox one time a day. I am finding the shots hurt and are bleeding. This is day #6. My doctor asks me to start as soon as I ovualte. I am thinking it is because the skin around my stomache is thin from the last pregnancy. I do ice, then alcohol. I also pinch the skin and give the shots about 2 inches from belly button. Another question is, can the shots be right beside one another?
She says she doesn't know what's causing the bleeding, but has me on activity restriction (no exercise, no running, no yoga,) pelvic rest, and flight restriction. I'm nervous, to say the least. I'm still bleeding too, but the blood is mostly brown now. I have been searching all over the internet and in books to find out what causes intense bleeding in early pregnancy when there are no apparent problems. There does not seem to be any answers out there.
The best way, acc'd to my doc, to navigate this is to go on Heparin instead of Lovenox because your anticoagulant dose can be counteracted, thus reducing alot of the risk of anti-coagulant-based bleeding at the c-section site. And the side-benefit is that if I go into labor unexpectadly I won't have to be put under general and an epidural should be fine. I'm so sorry I can't remember who asked me this!! I know she wasn't pregnant yet but this was a concern to her.
blood clots and bleeding, vomiting up blood and clots from the stomach, drastic drop in blood pressure (99/45) and lower with high heart rate of 138. He had his stomach pumped through his nose, he was given numerous units of blood (more than 7-8 in 24 hours), along with frozen plasma, etc. to stop the bleeding after being endoscoped and having the esoghagus veins banded for potential bleeding--all related to liver dysfunction due to colon cancer.
I apologize if some find this post upsetting, but I am now quite concerned. As many of you know I just experienced another miscarriage last week. It was the second time I required a D&C. This first D&C I had, I had initially taken medication (I think it was cypotec) instead, and wound up in ER bleeding heavily (to a dangerous point) and had an emergency D&C.
I was put on progesterone when i was 8 wks and motrin at 9 due to bleeding and contractions.
RE sent me to hematologist who retested and ran a more specific test and both came back negative. He said ACLs that go in and out of positives are nothing to be concerned about - only the ones that stay positive cause issues. He said I could do lovenox injections if I get pregnant again, but it is likely unnecessary. Oh, and my SED rate is always high - it is typically and indicator of an infection or inflammation, but neither my gp, a rheumatologist, nor a hematologist could figure out why.
If your brother was hospitalized due to mini strokes he may have been given anticoagulants to dissolve clots and keep the blood thin. The side effect is bleeding. The bruise could be due to that. INR, bleeding time, clotting time etc should be done and he must consult his doctor immediately-ASAP as he could also be bleeding internally. Take care!
Does anyone know if there is any correlation between a blood clot and hypothyroid/synthroid? i haven't found anything online. I know some people get DVT, pulmonary embolism from Birth Control and i know that thyroid/synthroid stuff is hormone related but is there any significance or anything documented about hypothyroid/synthroid etc.. and pulmonary embolism? I can't find a reason why this happened to me. I had a PE a few weeks ago with no DVT and docs can't find a reason for it??
Hi, If anyone's reading this, It is now one month and 3 days post op. I feel pretty good most days. Today I'm having some left sided pain, probably due to sleeping on my left side. The home care nurse just called, my INR is 4.8 !!! It has been 1.5, 1.8, 2.4, 2.8.....then I had to go on the medrol dose pak (steroids) for a severe rash I developed from taking niferex forte (we think this is what the rash is from) . Niferex forte is a vitamin capsule with vitamin c, b12, folic acid and iron.
I have a blood disorder called Factor Five Lieden (hetrozygous) and because of this I am also taking daily shots of .40 ml Lovenox. They re-scheduled my IVF and put me back on the BC and blood thinner. I have been back on it for 14 days and have felt sick to my stomach, tired and have suffered at least 2 severe migraines.

I am 41 and have experienced a chemical pregnancy and a m/c earlier this year and am now having another m/c. I had read somewhere about taking DHEA to improve egg quality and also about taking baby aspirin to possibly prevent a m/c. Can anyone tell me more about this? I am also curious about a B vitamin...I had read about it having something to do with fertility? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'm on 40mg Lovenox a day and have been spotting brown blood for past 2 weeks. I have heard Lovenox causes bleeding. I don't think I need to be on Lovenox. My Rhemetologist said some docs would think Lovenox is necessary while other docs would think I wouldn't need Lovenox. I'm 9 weeks pregnant and am tired of the spotting. I don't think I need to take Lovenox anymore. My OBGYN isn't running any routine blood tests either. Should he run tests and if so what tests?

I am now on warfarin and lovenox to thin out my blood. I have been on both for about a week and just want to know if there may be something else i can take to thin out my blood so the blood clot could get obsorbed. I just want to go back home to my baby, I am also taking an anti-seizure medication and it is working, haven't had a seizure since the first day, Do you think i could have gotten a stroke because of the birth control pills?
My period was 2 days late when i got my 1st BFP, then 2 days later I started spotting and the pregnancy test was still only faint. Well on the am of 3-3-10 I started bleeding heavily and was passing clots(more then normal and larger) but my BFP was darker then the 2 previous ones, I continued to bleed heavily for the remainder of the day and then spotted for like 5 more days. All the pregnancy tests were still + until the 3-6-10 then they were all negative.
If I decide to become pregnant again, I will have to take blood thinners and increase my B-complex vitamins both before and during pregnancy. (Lovenox is the blood thinner he recommended, and he prescribed Folgard as a vitamin supplement in addition to my prenatal vitamin.) My husband and I have decided to look into adoption because I just don't think I have the courage to go down this path again. This is our decision, but I wanted to put this information out there for others.
Platelets are what helps clot your blood, they all group together. Low platelets puts you at an increased risk for bleeding, but high platelets put you at an increased risk for excess clotting, such as DVTs...
I need to have knee replacement and I had a stent place in August 2012 The card says must take Plavix the surgeon wants me to stop Plavix and use Lovenox What would be the danger if any if I just stop both for a week?
When I started the Lovenox my OB told me to stop the baby aspirin, and only do the Lovenox. Because of the Lovenox, I am now almost 18 weeks pregnant with a very active baby. I will take the Lovenox right up until the end of my pregnancy. My hubby gives me the shots. I have to ice the area first, otherwise it hurts really bad, but if I ice it a good 3-5 minutes before the shot, I cant even feel it. I think that you will find the success you are looking for with the Lovenox.
