Therapy for Women Prone to Miscarriage Questioned

Pregnant women with an inherited condition that makes them susceptible to blood clots, called thrombophilia, are often given blood-thinning treatments. But this may do more harm than good.

A study found a higher likelihood of excessive bleeding during delivery among women with the condition. The researchers attribute that heavy bleeding to the "standard practice" of administering blood thinners.

Reuters reports:

“Thrombophilia can cause a blood clot in the placenta leading to miscarriage, so women with a genetic susceptibility to thrombophilia are often given blood thinners during pregnancy to reduce that risk.”
