you can plan to concieve any time but you have to stop warfarin for atleast for the first three months(Ist Trimester)electively whenever you plan, and replace it with Heparin either Unfractionated or Low molecular Weight Heparin

hi warfarin is contraindicated in pregnancy, because it passes the placental barrier and affect child and causes complications. consult your docter to give substitute for worfarin like heparin which is more safe, so consult docter.
