Post subject: factor 5 leiden
We've been to the consultants today and I've just found out I've got factor 5 leiden from one of my parents.
I was just wondering if anyone has come across this affecting fertility as we have been trying for 3 years and nothing.
I know it can cause miscarriages but I've not even got that far yet.
Good luck for this month everyone xxx

I was just popping into this section and noticed your post.
I too have factor 5 leiden, and the same as you it's from one side of the family. I previously had 2 miscarriages, hence me getting tested and finding out, but I am now 33 weeks pregnant, and have been injecting clexane as the result of the factor 5 (even though they are not 100% sure that it's down to the factor 5 that caused them)
Has the consultant advised you on treatment? are they aware you are trying to conceive?
If you need to chat you can always pm me, I'm no expert, but can help out as much as I can xxx
