Looking for any recommendations on procedure/clinics in Toronto that a woman with Factor V would be eligible for.  Not sure the hormone injections are an option due to risk of blood clotting. Thanks!

Many woman have to take blood thinners when they have clotting issues. I was on Fragmin for my last transfer but seen others use Lovenox, Heparin etc. I don't have any clotting issues that we know of, but we take it as a precaution. I've seen many have great success when they have clotting issues when they use a blood thinner. They also still do the stimulating meds. Good luck.
