Can anyone help me. I'm 30 years old and JAK2 positvie ( Janus kinase 2 mutation in my blood)
This is due to a thrombocythaemia and means that I am on hydroxycarbamide daily and have been for 6 years now.
My question is this;
Is there anyone who has anything simular on this state? I want to start a family but I am aware that I am much more prone to misscarring.
Is anyone able to shed any light on this for me?
I would be deeply thankful to hear from anyone who is/has been through this.
Thank you very much
I have just joined and read your thread. I know it was over a year ago, but if you still require information regarding pregnancy and Essential Thrombocythaemia, I would be more than happy to discuss my experiences. Kind regards xx
Thank you for replying. Id be very grateful for any experience/advice you could give me!
Thank you so much
Yorkie313, where is that like button... this is probably the oldest thread to continue in the history of Macmillan lol.... I second that interferon is the safest way to go, Pegylated interferon alpha seems to be the most favoured by patients, the side effects are greatly reduced.
I was just brousing this site to see if there is anyone with an MPN here. Not many I see.
Kim, I wish you all the best with starting a family, I am wondering if you have any children yet?
