Women of child-bearing potential are increasingly treated with direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) for venous thrombo-embolism, and so the impact on abnormal vaginal bleeding is an important topic to consider. This adverse event in women taking anticoagulants may result in discontinuation, leading to recurrent venous thrombosis. This issue includes an important study highlighting this topic, reporting post-hoc analysis of abnormal vaginal bleeding in women receiving edoxaban or warfarin for treatment of venous thrombosis (Scheres et al BJOG 2018).
