Thanks for the query.
Hypothyroidism if corrected properly does not cause problem in conception or in pregnancy. Regarding your past delivery history, termination at 4 month with leaking is justified but second abortion just because you had passed clot is not justified. You should have had ultrasound at that time. Some bleeding or passage of clot is often seen in early pregnancy which are managed conservatively and leads to successful outcome. Regarding future conception, continue current medicine and plan. You are healthy women and need not be discouraged by your past history. Take folic acid tablet 5 mg per day in consultation with your local doctor. Try to minimise your stress.
Hope this helps. Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
All the best

hello XXXXXXX maam..

thanks for your reply...actually last year again there was aclot which was shown in the ultrasound and it remain with the same size in following 2 ultrasoun which were done weekly..but as i had a painful experience in my earlier pregnancy so we didnt want to go to that level n take that same pain again so we decided to terminate medically (just to decrease the mental n physical trauma)..i just wanaa knw..
1..why there is a clottin again n again,is that related to thyoid (but durin my both pregnancy my level was normal with the help of medicine)
2...does ecosprin help to reduce clots..
3..since i had my cryo this april ..when can i plan now
4...lastly,can cervix erosion was a reason for those bleedins...and will cryo help now

hope to hear from you
thanks for your time.. XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing back.
1. If thyroid is controlled during pregnancy it does not cause clotting or other problem.
2. ecospirin to some extent helps in clot reduction.
3. cryo has no effect on pregnancy so you can plan now.
4. cervical erosion may cause small external bleeding which is not very common. Also it does not cause clot or internal bleeding so I do not think cervical erosion was cause of your past abortions.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
