Hi Alkie, I think most of it depends on whether you have had any symptoms of factor v such as any clots? I had a PE after the birth of my son this yr in May and almost lost my life. They found out I have Factor V, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome and Protein S deficiency so I am on blood thinners for life. Because of this, I have to be careful with the amount of greens I eat, because of the levels of vitamin k. I find it hard to keep my INR up so I need to eat the same amount of greens each day or it will affect my levels. Alcohol is also a factor, the odd drink is ok but I need to consult my doctor if I know im gonna have more than a couple so they can adjust my meds(ive just decided not to drink)
My periods were always quite light, even on the blood thinners I had no change, but if you do have problems with them, the Mirena is suppose to be very effective in making them lighter(I had one of these put in cos im not allowed to fall accidentely pregnant on warfarin)
If youve recently been diagnosed with this, you would have had it your whole life as its genetic, so nothing should actually change in this department
Hope ive helped with some of your questions
