Acquired PSD

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Does anyone have any information on acquired PSD? Is this a result of my first pregnancy which was perfectly normal and healthy, or the subsequent four miscarriages? I have just had the results on some genetic tests which show I do not have the gene for it, so I guess it's not hereditary in my case. Sorry for the questions but a little confused.

Although I've yet to find a medical research paper that can back it up my understanding is that (amongst other possible causes) it would be 'acquired' whenever you are pregnant and return to a more normal level sometime later. Protein S levels are naturally lower during pregnancy (see FAQs) but if significantly lower than those thresholds then they would consider it as having a deficiency.
