I am currently on heparin. I have had 3 miscarriages and had some extensive testing done and was found to have two problems that can cause miscarriage and one of them causes issues with folic acid. I take heparin only when pregnant for the entire pregnancy and stop 48 hours before delivery.

Thanks for sharing your story. I have aslo had 3 miscarriages & I am told that Heparin is the answer to my problems. I will start taking injections daily as soon as I get pregnant again. I am so scared at this point since I have not had any successful pregnancies & will be turning 39 soon. So may I ask if those are your children in the photo & did you take the heparin with them?

The girl I didn't. I had only had one miscarriage before I got pg with her, but I was taking a baby aspirin per day. I was on heparin with my son I had 2 losses before getting pg with him. I am currently on 5000 units 2X per day, 1 baby aspirin per day and 10X the RDA for folic acid. I hope that heparin helps you get the beautiful baby of your dreams.
