Just wanted to pick anyone's brains about their protocol experience, in every transfer I've been prescribed clexane, I take it without question.

Please don't just read and not bother to comment this is a shared resource for us ladies battling with similar issues,  if your over 40 trying to have a baby and have been prescribed clexane or similar please just drop a comment to say if you were prescribed it, did you get told why, if you took it and did it help?

Thanks

    Hi I was prescribed it each time and had it or the equivalent on nhs until after my baby was born last year, aged 45. Didnít enjoy the injections but was happy to do them if it helped our chances. I read that research showed it was helpful for various reasons and I didnít want any blood clotting risks whether that was likely or not!

    All the best x

    Hello Iklefeet,

    I was prescribed clexane injections when I was having my ivf. Honestly I canít remember been told why  ^idiot^ or maybe I forgot. I thought its part of getting the body ready. Anyway, you can alway talk to you doctor about it.

    Sorry not much information. :o

    Sweet mother  ^fairydust^

    Apart from being used for clotting issues, which can be hereditary, it is prescribed for the clotting issues because estrogen rises in pregnancy and makes the blood thicker and therefore susceptible to clotting. In addition, according to my dr. Braverman (rip), it helps with immune issues as well. I donít have any clotting issues, but for both my successful pregnancies (in my 30s), I was using Clexane.
