2. Symptoms of blood clotting disorder during pregnancy
The telltale signs of blood clots during pregnancy depend on the lack of clotting factors (proteins) in the blood clots that form.
The formation of blood clots in pregnant women is due to an increase in the hormone estrogen and changes in the veins. Some common symptoms of this phenomenon are shortness of breath, chest pain, sudden swelling or pain in the legs or arms.
If the blood clotting disorder is more severe, there may be bleeding on impact or trauma, heart palpitations, low blood pressure...
3. Is blood clotting disorder during pregnancy dangerous?
Blood clotting disorder is a dangerous disease, especially for women during pregnancy. Normally, pregnant women can live with this disease, but if this condition is prolonged and untreated, it will affect the health of the pregnant mother as well as the fetus. Blood clotting disorders can lead to the death of both mother and baby.
Some dangerous complications for pregnant women when suffering from blood clotting disorders:
The growth of the fetus in the uterus is restricted: the baby will be born smaller than usual; Silent, random bleeding: Fibrinigen is lost in the blood clot, the placenta and uterus are damaged by clotting factors and platelets, putting both mother and baby at risk Amniotic fluid is blocked. : It is only when the fetus is dead that this complication is recognized. This complication occurs when the doctor performs amniocentesis, removes the fetus or cesarean section. Manifestations of this complication in pregnant women are heart palpitations, decreased blood pressure, causing pulmonary embolism causing pulmonary artery to increase, venous blood pressure also increases; Placenta insufficiency: the placenta develops in the uterus. The role of the placenta is to provide nutrients and oxygen to the fetus through the umbilical cord. The placenta will not function when it is weakened, causing the baby not to receive enough nutrients and lack of oxygen; Preeclampsia syndrome: usually appears after the 20th week of pregnancy. For women with high blood pressure that makes organs such as the liver and kidneys unable to function properly, pre-eclampsia syndrome can occur soon after pregnancy; Risk of premature birth: the baby can be born before 37 weeks of pregnancy Risk of miscarriage and infection in the mother: The fetus can die in utero before 28 weeks of pregnancy. When the tissues are necrotic and released to the outside, causing an infection in the mother during pregnancy. Blood clotting disorders during pregnancy are very dangerous.
