A genetic test will determine your RISKS of taking a combination oral contraceptive (OC)
If you have abnormalities in the F2 and F5 genes and are taking OCs, you have a 100 times increased risk of thrombosis.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Combination oral contraceptives contain two hormones (estrogen and progesterone)
Estrogen affects the blood-clotting system by clotting it.
As a result of the combination of taking contraceptives и Blood clotting disorders (F2 and F5 genes) you get serious complications.
WHAT COMPLICATIONS COULD THERE BE?
Cardiovascular, ischemic stroke and CHD, myocardial infarction
Peripheral and cerebral veins, arteries
LOSS OF FOOD
Premature pregnancy, early miscarriage, fetoplacental insufficiency
ANALYSIS IS RECOMMENDED
When planning to take and taking hormonal oral contraceptives
Hormone replacement therapy during menopause
Venous thrombosis in women taking oral contraceptives
More about the F2 and F5 genes
encodes the structure and formation of the protrombin protein
encodes the TROMBIN PRODUCTION OF PROTROMBIN
IN THE COMBINATION OF MUTATIONS in the F2 and F5 genes
the risk of thromboembolic complications during the use of hormonal contraceptives increases significantly. For this reason, experts believe that screening for the Leiden mutation and prothrombin gene mutation is necessary for ALL women taking hormonal contraceptives (or intending to take them).
WHAT'S THE RESULT?
If a clinically significant genotype (mutations in the F2 and F5 genes) is detected, it is recommended to replace the oral contraceptives with another contraceptive method .
Information about your genes allows your doctor to prevent complications and recommend safe contraception.
ALL THROMBOPHILIA GENES
If you have a family history of early thrombosis, heart attacks or strokes, be sure to look at all thrombophilia genes.
