Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hi, It's Dr. C. Board certified Ob-gyne with 30+ years of experience. I can help you today.
I'm sorry to hear about your concern. Yes it's perfectly safe for you to go ahead and sue the Plan B despite your history of Factor V deficiency and prior history of DVT. We are much less concerned about progesterone than we are about estrogen. But the Plan B as a morning after pill is perfectly safe with your history.
I hope this was helpful and reassuring. Please reply if I can clarify anything or add details. I want to be sure you have the most helpful information for your situation.
I'm sorry for the nervousness. But it's the estrogen that's the problem with coagulation issues. Not the progesterone. So in women with a history of Factor V Leiden and blood clots, progesterone by itself is fine. Plan B is progesterone by itself, so it doesn't pose any risk. Any other questions so I can reassure you. I do have extensive experience in this area.
