Everything I have read states you may not take coumadin while you are pregnant, there are many risks. My question is what if I have to take coumadin for the rest of my life, but I also want to have a child. Is there anyway this can happen for me?
Yes your hair loss could be a result of the Coumadin. This is a known side effect. You cannot take Coumadin during the first trimester or the 2-4 weeks before birth. You should discuss with your doctor about switching to Arixtra or Lovenox. The Arixtra would be safer as there are less osteoporosis issues. Best of luck getting pregnant.
