hello i wonder if you can help as my daughter does not know much about this condition and pregnancy.
This is a benign condition, unless it is secondary to an obvious inflammtory disease or cancer
Why has she not talked to her OB doctor?
Have not heard back from you.
She should have her doctors make sure she does not have circulating cold antibodies...which I am sure she does not, or you would know.
Otherwise, if she has no underlying illness/malignancy, I see no problems here.
she has already had 2 misscarriages and her doctor did not know much about this condition as it is seemingly very rare
very rare indeed.
it should not account for the miscarriage, however:
Since she has this, I would make sure she has further testing as mentioned.
specifically for lupus antigoagulant
women with this have a higher incidence of miscarriage
I am going to change the format in a minute if you keep having problems with chat
If it is the cause for her miscarriages what would be the treatment and will she be able to have children?
It is not a cause.
If she has lupus anticoagulant, the potentially miscarriages can be prevented with aspirin
Or fractionated heparin
when would she have to commence this treatment if she does have lupus. Would she need any treatment if she gets pregnant with the cryofibrinogaenia
It is not lupus
It is lupus anticoagulant.
This treatment would start during pregnancy
either a baby aspirin
Or sub q injections of heparing.
would she need asprin or sub cut heparin if she does not have lupus anticoagulant?
not at all
Thank you so much for that .She went to see her urologist today and she couldn't give her any answers.Can you just tell me why she could have lupus.
It is not lupus: it is lupus anticoaguant
mostly no symptoms
But increased risk for miscarriage
thank you for your chat. i feel a lot better now
Let me know if you have further questions.
Use reply to expert as needed.

Hi can you tell me can cryofibrinogenaemia be caused by lupus anticoagulation ?or the other way round ? are they connected?
