Has any been diagnosed with factor 5 Leiden (both mutations) and something else? My hemotologist suggested that I see a geneticist because I may have other disorders. I think there might be something related to my veins being wonky.

      @Haleigh3 just make sure they look at blood thinners while you r pregnant..when I was looking at having another baby they were going to give me clexaine injections daily, which is quite scary..in the end we decided to get my tubes done, I'm happy with my one son, though it would of been nice to give him a sibling (we lost our first, still birth that's how we found out I was leiden)

      I have factor V and Thalassemia. Having them both is the only thing that saved my life when I had bilateral P.E.’s. I came into the ER with 30% oxygen levels I could barely breathe it was definitely scary

      I have two blood clotting disorders including factor v! I also have tiny veins which is an issue when it comes to blood draws.

        @Mollyfreerny what were the diagnosis if I may ask, It will help me pinpoint specificly. I have very tiny and shallow veins.
