Hi,you know clexane is anti platelet drug.Normally before any surgery this kind of drugs are not given.In some cardiac procedure this is not withheld.It is better to you please ask the in charge physician about this.thanks and bye.

Hello doctor. I am being prescribed clexane to prevent uterine clotting after ivf embryo transfer. (I have a gene variant which can cause clotting and cause miscarriage and clexane had been proved to help). My clinic are not familiar with prescribing clexane for this problem, but have prescribed 1 x 40mg injection per day. Should this be enough to stop clotting? I m not sure how long the effects of each injection of clexane lasts for? And also how long does it take before clexane starts to work from the initial injection? I haven t started taking it yet and have my transfer booked in for a week today. I m planning to start taking the day before embryo transfer. Is that soon enough? Many thanks.
