Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Actually, you have the right idea, she should stop taking birth control pills to be on the safe side until she can get tested for the Factor V Leiden deficiency. If she has the gene, then she is at an increased risk of developing blood clots and using birth control pills in that scenario would increase the risk significantly. BUT at the same time, she should practice some form of birth control, like using a diaphragm or condoms because if she gets pregnant that too can increase the risk.

However, she should get tested as soon as possible so we can know whether she has this deficiency or not. The chances of her having this are low as she would need a copy of the defective gene from both you and her father which would increase her risk of developing blood clots to 80 in 1000 and if she has only one copy of the gene her risk would be around 3 in 1000.

But to simply answer your question, YES she should stop the pills until she gets tested.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
