My daughter has Factor v and last year developed a PE. She was on blood thinners for 6 months and now is off. She has terrible menstral cycles and is very irregular. When she does get her cycle, the week leading up to it she is always very sick. Pain, circulation issues, dizzy, complete fatigue and migraine.
This month the cycle was so bad she passed clots the size of 4 to 6 ounces in size.
We are not sure if this is due to Factor V but we feel there may be some correlation. To make matters worse she is a celiac so she deals with that autoimmune issue as well.
