    Is this crazy?

    I was over at another board today someone posted about taking baby aspirin while ttc after having a mc.  So, I googled it and saw this...

    Aspirin is an over the counter medicine used for pain relief and to reduce fever. Aspirin is also an anticoagulant; that is, it keeps blood from clotting excessively.

    A low does of aspirin such as found in baby aspirin may be beneficial to fertility. It is thought that aspirin can help the uterine lining by helping with the blood flow to the ovaries and uterus. Low dose aspirin treatment also significantly improves ovarian response. Aspirin is thought to help with In Vitro Fertilization, particularly in women who have previously had a miscarriage. Studies show that it may reduce the risk of miscarriage as much as 50% when used with heparin or immunoglobulin.

    You can take any brand of aspirin, as long as it has no more than 81 mg per tablet. This will be in either the chewable baby aspirins, or in the adult low dose aspirin. The tablets are very small and easy to swallow. You only need to take one tiny pill per day to reap the benefits. Taking one low dose or baby aspirin (81 mg) a day is a good thing to add to the supplements you are already taking. If you are suspicious about miscarriages, or have suffered from them in the past, ask your doctor about aspirin. It could very well be what the doctor orders. When you are trying to conceive, it is important not to take any type of drug, even an over the counter one, without talking to your doctor first.


    I guess it wouldn't hurt to start taking baby aspirin.  What do you think?  I am due to ov next week.

    Talk to your doctor.  I was under the impression that aspirin is a very bad idea while pg or TTC.

    I just left a message with my OB.  I'm still reading many articles about it right now.  What I read about chem pg's is that the egg fertilizes but does not attach to the uterine wall.  They are saying that the baby aspirin can strengthen the uterinee wall.  I'm defintiely going to give it a shot if I get the ok.

    My doctor has had me on low-dose aspirin therapy while trying to TTC, because when I had my genetic analysis run (after 2 m/c) it showed a specific potential for a clotting disorder that could have caused one/more of my multiple mc's. But, I had another m/c afterwards, so I don't know, but I have stayed on the low dose aspirin.

    I'm now 6 weeks pg and still taking it; my doctor says if this pregnancy sticks I will stay on it until the 3rd trimester- you don't want to be on an anticoagulant when you give birth if possible. There is no shown risk to you or the baby if you take 1 pill per day of low dose (81mg) aspirin.
