Is there any problem in having kid after Sintrom treatment?

I had suffered a venous thrombosis at the right leg and then a pulmonary embolism in Jan 2009. I was under Sintrom treatment from Jan 2009 until May 2011. What are the risk of developing again a thrombosis? I want to have a baby but I don t know if the Sintrom took could still be in my blood. Thank you!

Hi
Dr. Purushottam welcomes you to HCM virtual clinic.
I have gone through your query.
I think I have understood your concern, I will try to suggest you the best possible treatment options.
Sintrom is a drug from coumarin family, that helps prevent blood clotting inside veins.
You must stop Sintrom when you want to get pregnant . Instead you can use safer alternative like Low Molecular weight Heparin. Gradually shift from Sintrom to LMW heparin.It is a small injection to be taken on daily basis, you can learn and start taking it on your own, once prescribed by doctor.
Aslo try to find out cause of thrombosis, get on to good diet and exercise regimen. Avoid staying in same position like sitting or standing for long time. You can use good fitting compression stockings and also get checked for varicose veins.
I hope my answer helps you.
