Hypercoagulable syndrome in pregnancy

Hypercoagulable syndrome in pregnancy

Briefly about pathology

Medical research has shown that whole families and dynasties can be prone to thrombosis. The high-risk condition of this pathology is called hypercoagulable syndrome. Statistics say that about 5% of people suffer from it. If we talk about pregnant women, then every third of them there is a hypercoagulable syndrome. In people over 60 years of its manifestation are very frequent. This is 3/4 men and women.

With this syndrome, even minor factors can provoke the development of thromboses. That is why the diagnosis and neutralization of such factors is a measure of disease prevention.

There are increased and high risks of thrombosis. In the first case, preventive measures should be taken only during periods of intense physical work, travel with long flights, during surgical operations, trauma, childbearing, during and after childbirth.

Phlebologists say that with a genetic predisposition to thrombosis, it may not occur if a person complies with such recommendations:

  1. Walking 3-4 kilometers daily on an average pace.
  2. Use up to two liters of liquid per day.
  3. Daily do gymnastics, but without jumping and lifting dumbbells, swim, engage in hydro-aerobics.
  4. With sedentary work and a long time in a static position, take breaks in 40 minutes, getting up and moving for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Sitting at the desk, making movements with ankle joints.
  6. Normalize heightened body weight.

Child bearing and hypercoagulable syndrome

This condition can significantly burden the course of pregnancy. It is about its fading in the early term; development of retrochoric hematomas; the presentation of the chorion; spontaneous self-abortions in late pregnancy; development of eclampsia and pre-eclampsia. Also, midwives state that hypercoagulable syndrome can lead to umbilical cord vein thrombosis and hemorrhoids; development of varicose veins; stroke, heart attack; headaches; thrombocytopenia.

Clotting of blood in future mothers can develop as a result of the coincidence of a large number of negative factors. This obesity, hypodynamia, stress, dehydration, violation of the tone of blood vessels, overheating.

When diagnosing hypercoagulable syndrome in pregnant women, risk factors are:

  1. Carrying of thrombophilia genes. This is the pathology of genes responsible for blood clotting.
  2. Vitamin C deficiency, which is an important physiological coagulation inhibitor.
  3. Antiphospholipid syndrome. So called autoimmune disease, characterized by pathological activation of platelets.
  4. Dysplasia of connective tissue, one of the signs of which is the inherent weakness of capillaries and vessels.

    The presence of such states in the future mother does not mean that bearing will necessarily take place with serious risks and complications. The younger the female body, the higher its resistance and less chance of hypercoagulable syndrome.

    Practice shows that the first pregnancy can have a physiological course, that is, go through without complications. But just she can become an activator of the above conditions. Then the second pregnancy will be more risky. And to avoid such risks, gynecologists strongly recommend planning the birth of children and timely detect pathological conditions - this allows you to properly train the female body.

    Prevention of hypercoagulability syndrome, including the above-described activities for ordinary people, allows women to avoid many complications when carrying children.
