Great Article only wish this knowledge had been available years ago I had 12 miscarriages and many attempts at IVf before getting my precious son and daughter. When we went back for a third 8 years later the IVF team discovered that I had APS and put me on clexane for weeks before conception and then 12 weeks after conception and then we started it again 12 weeks before delivery and 6 weeks after delivery. It really helped it was the first time I conceive first go and carried the baby almost to full term.

The advances in technology are amazing who know what the future holds for all of us with the medical advances
Kindest Regards

I agree, great article. I do not have APS but had a significant flare after my first pregnancy and have been taking hydroxychloroquine throughout my current pregnancy. So far things at 20 weeks are great and the baby is healthy and growing normally and I feel really good-great med!
