Range of Daily Vitamin K

My first pulmonary embolism was five years ago, and my doctor in Korea believed it was due to my birth control; I took blood thinners for two years and all seemed to be solved. Now, at age 30, I just had my second pulmonary embolism due to reasons still unknown to my doctors (I'm healthy, have no regular causation factors, no family history...).
So, after all is said and done, I've been advised to be as consistent as possible in everything I do on a daily basis (time and frequency of food, exercise, medication, etc.) to eliminate any external factors. I'm pretty new to all this, and I can't quite figure out my vitamin K intake. I keep being told that being consistent is the most important thing, but I'm not quite sure HOW consistent I should be... based on my usual diet, I've set my goal to 110 micrograms per day, but what range should it be safe to stay within? 5 micrograms either way? 10? 20?
