For some reason, my ob-gyn thought that IgG antibodies were "risker" in terms of miscarriage & pregnancy problems than IgM anti-cardiolipin antibodies. The research I did at the time was mixed - some studies agreed with his statement and other studies found significant increased risk with either type of ACL antibody. Most studies felt higher levels indicated more risk.

I have tested positive for ACL IgM twice (a few months apart), once was in the mid 20s and once in the 50s. It would be interesting to see what has happened now over 5 years later - if they've changed to the IgG type. I've only had thrombophelebitis once, and no other problems due to them that I am aware of.
