Thrombophilia is a disease characterized by problems in the mechanisms of blood clotting, which can lead to the appearance of thrombi and clots.
When there is a blood vessel with a thrombus, the normal flow of blood is not allowed, and this can pose a risk during pregnancy. In a situation of thrombophilia, miscarriages, preeclampsia, retarded fetal growth, etc. may occur. It should be noted that during pregnancy, women with thrombophilias are not medicated, so there is a greater chance of developing thrombi and clots obstructing the blood vessels.
