I've been taking vitamin k2 (naturally occurring from Natto) for my teeth for several months. I'm nursing a 17 month old and my gums were starting to bleed a lot. I saw a huge improvement in my teeth -- not just in the gums, but also in the hardness of my teeth.
I'm now 6 weeks pregnant with my second child. As I understand it, vitamin k2 has a lot of benefits for baby, so I've continued to take it. I started to bleed this past weekend and found out that I have a subchorionic hematoma--blood is collecting between the uterine wall and chorionic membrane. The midwife didn't act as if it was that big a deal, but I understand that it can increase your risk for 2nd trimester miscarriage and pre-term labor if it doesn't resolve.
Does anyone know if vitamin k (a coagulant) would CAUSE the blood to clot in the uterus and become a problem.......or would it help remove the clot. Forgive my pregnant brain, but I feel confused about this and am finding various conflicting opinions online. I don't see my midwife for another month and I'm just trying to make the decision to stop of continue the vitamin k. My prenatals have some in it too.
Any experience or advice would be appreciated...
