Hello Merlin
Thanks for your query.
Once your disease is under control, you can definitely plan a pregnancy.
Pregnancy is an increased thrombogenic state, so the likelihood of your requiring intensive care is quite high.
Please act in concert with a gynecologist and a hepatobiliary specialist .
The anticoagulants would have to be titrated and changed accordingly.
Take care.
