What is factor V Leiden? Find out more about this inherited blood clotting disorder:

Serious illness, casts and surgery can increase your chances of developing blood clots. When you need health care or go to the hospital, tell your healthcare team that you have Factor V Leiden, so that they can plan the care you need. You may be treated with blood thinners until the risk has passed. If you have other chronic conditions such as diabetes, work with your health team to manage your health. Women have a greater chance of developing a blood clot during pregnancy. Before becoming pregnant, talk with your doctor about how your risk of blood clots can be managed during pregnancy, childbirth and for 6 weeks postpartum. You may be treated with blood thinners during this time. Hormones and birth control pills also increase women’s risk of blood clots. Talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of taking these medications.
