Like all drugs even blood thinners have a few side effects. However these side effects re due to prolonged use, used without proper monitoring, so what are the side effects? These side effects are usually due to bleeding at various sites. So there may be bleeding form the gums, bleeding form the teeth or even bleeding in the stools or vomitus or bleeding even during passing urine. Sometimes very rarely there may be bleed at the placental site. Hoverer this is very rare. Apart from this some of the not so common side effects include osteoporosis or increased bone loss or also hair loss or in some cases there may be also birth effects with the use of warfarin. But this is again with warfarin which tend to cross the placental barrier. But drugs like heparin or low molecular weight heparin are injectable or not cross the blood placental barrier and thereby their side effects are almost negligible on the fetus. Apart from this you may also have some local allergic reactions or even skin necrosis or skin discolouration. So it is every important that these side effects are made as minimal as possible. So these can be done by the following measures, one we use PTT or Prothrombin time or the APTT. These are certain blood tests that can be used to monitor the blood coagulation during the pregnancy and thereby we can prevent the bleeding complications. Apart from that it is also important that the doctor choses the right blood thinner for the right patients and it is also important that the patient is aware of the side effects and report immediately. At the most we may have to stop the blood thinner and start the antidote.

The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
