I've had a blood clot before, which is what resulted in my high intervention labor (inducement because of blood thinners). Anyway, all my genetic testing doesn't show a specific cause, but they treated me anyway (preventative) and I had to stay on heparin for 6 weeks post partum. So I've been off the the heparin for almost 6 weeks now, and I suspect another bood clot.
I go to the doctor tomorrow, but my leg is REALLY sore, and swollen by half an inch.
The last clot I had was because of birth control, having got the clot only a few weeks after starting it.
So my question is, how much estrogen do you produce while breastfeeding? I will probably end up back on heparin while I'm breastfeeding, but I'm curious to know how much is still present after pregnancy/labor during breastfeeding?
