I've had two live births followed by 3 miscarriages (2 very early and one at 14.5 weeks). It has recently been found that I have the Factor 2 gene mutation. What are the chances that this clotting disorder caused the miscarriages specially after 2 uneventful live births? Any reason why this would show up later in my reproductive life? Would you recommend heparin shots and/or baby aspirin if I was to proceed with getting pregnant again?

before you can attribute these later losses to Factor 2 you need to rule out all other issues as I agree it is unlikely(not impossible) to be the issue after 2 uneventful pregnancies , as this is something you are born with not aquired.
