I am sorry that you are having this problem but will do my best to assist you and answer your questions. It sounds like you had a pulmonary embolism after delivery? Are you currently on anticoagulants? If this history is correct then you should be.
The recommended treatment would be Lovenox during the pregnancy and close monitoring. You need care with a maternal fetal medicine specialist or high risk ob Dr.
Thank you for trusting Just Answer with your question. Please let me know if you have additional concerns or need me to clarify something. I am happy to help.
Pregnancy alone can cause clotting in the lungs and the legs. I would assume you will need to be on a blood thinner for the pregnancy. You are going to need a consult with a high risk specialist.
