Epidemiology – Venous thromboembolism (VTE) occurs in pregnant women at 7-10 times the incidence in age-matched controls. Pregnant women who get VTE have deep venous thrombosis (DVT) approximately 3 times as often as pulmonary embolism (PE). The increased risk is similar during all three trimesters, starts to diminish after delivery, and returns to baseline by six weeks post-partum.
