During pregnancy, the most important risk factor for any new venous thromboembolism (VTE) remains a history prior VTE. A missed diagnosis might have lethal effects, therefore if a VTE is suspected, expeditious evaluation is warranted. Upon diagnosis, LMWH and UFH would be the recognized treatments. The timing of anticoagulation at delivery must be contacted carefully, mainly because of the risks with regional anesthesia and postpartum hemorrhage. After delivery, the postpartum period continues to be the greatest risk time-frame for VTE and thromboprophylaxis should be thought about in high-risk patients. If your VTE is diagnosed, therapy should be ongoing for at least 6 days postpartum and ideally for 6 months after diagnosis of the VTE is made.
