Determine the risk of thrombosis with a self-test

During a thrombosis, a blood clot forms. This blood clot can restrict blood flow. The leg or pelvic veins are often particularly affected. If the thrombus breaks off and travels to other parts of the body, this can result in serious complications such as a pulmonary embolism or a heart attack. It is therefore important to recognize thrombosis early.

How at risk are you? Take the test and find out how high your individual risk of thrombosis is.

Important: Please note that this test is only a general assessment. A medical examination is always necessary for an accurate diagnosis and individual advice.
