Is antithrombin III safe for women who are pregnant?

It is not known if antithrombin III can harm a fetus. Scientists gave pregnant rats and rabbits doses of antithrombin III that were about four times higher than the normal human dose. Antithrombin III did not cause any birth defects in these animals. However, no studies were done on pregnant women. This medication should be given to pregnant women only if they clearly need it. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, talk to your doctor before taking antithrombin III.
