Antiphospholipid Syndrome and Pregnancy

Pregnancy is one of the most blessed and memorable journeys a woman takes. However, many medical conditions can pose problems in this beautiful journey, and a few, like Antiphospholipid Syndrome, can even cut short the journey by causing miscarriage, stillbirths, and other obstetric complications. What is Antiphospholipid Syndrome, how does it impact pregnancy, and how is it treated to make the pregnancy journey more safe and secure? We posed these common questions about Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) to the best gynaecologist in Mumbai, Dr. Neelima Mantri. Read on to know her answers.

What is Antiphospholipid Syndrome?

Hughes syndrome, also known as Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS), is an autoimmune disorder that triggers abnormal blood clotting in the body. An APS patient’s immune system mistakenly produces a specific antibody that attacks phospholipids, which play a crucial role in blood clotting and cell function. These antibodies ultimately increase the risk of blood clots forming in our veins and arteries. This increased tendency of blood clotting can have implications throughout the body, causing severe problems like deep vein thrombosis (DVT), strokes, and pulmonary embolism.
