Hi,Thanks for providing more information.
If you have had a history of DVT - deep venous thrombosis,unforutunately, yes pregnancy would put you at risk because the pregnancy hormones promote clot formation.
But that is without treatment.
If you have a preconception counselling visit with your ob gyn, they can actually start you on the newer heparin type medications to reduce your chance of developing a clot which will allow you to carry a pregnancy to full term with minimal risk.
So pregnancy is not contraindicated; you just have to be on medication, ideally before you conceive.
