Hi Fides, congratulations on your pregnancy Do you believe the aspirin did it for you this time then? What do you mean about a blood clotting in your regular cycles?

I haven't read all the pages so sorry if I am repeating someone.

Generally, women should not take aspirin during pregnancy. The doses in headache pills and the like can be harmful. You should not "self-medicate" with aspirin without a prescription.

For some women, aspirin AT A VERY LOW DOSE can be very helpful in preventing miscarriage, especially used along side heparin injections. The 75mg in a baby aspirin is a lot less than the 500mg in a headache pill and has not been shown to be harmful at all. But unless you have tested positive for a blood clotting disorder, you should avoid messing around with blood thinning drugs as it may not do you any good at all.

But no. I don't believe that aspirin will cure a miscarriage.
Hi there... you're confused as to what kind of miscarriage aspirin is meant to prevent. What you are describing is a chromosome defect, which happens at conception and neither aspirin nor anything else can prevent.

Low-dose aspirin is sometimes prescribed by RE's to prevent a completely different kind of miscarriage... for women who have clotting disorders. Clotting disorders (or even overly thick blood) cause blood flow and nutrients to be cut off, killing a perfectly healthy baby. Baby aspirin is a very simple, safe way to prevent that specific problem. In that case, when the baby is chromosomally healthy, you'd better believe that low-dose aspirin can save that baby's life!

You don't have a clotting disorder, so you shouldn't take low-dose aspirin during pregnancy. But it's irresponsible and quite wrong to make a blanket statement that aspirin won't prevent a miscarriage, because for women with clotting disorders, baby aspirin can be the life-or-death difference.

Now, as for my answers to the OP's survey:

Ever taken aspirin before? / outcome of pregnancy?: Yes, for this pregnancy and two prior pregnancies... the previous two resulted in miscarriage, but that is because they had chromosome issues, nothing to do with aspirin

Pregnant now? / Weeks? Yes - 12w3d

Taking aspirin for present pregnancy? I did, but stopped at 12 weeks on doctor's orders

If taking aspirin now what dose, when did you start taking it, when do you stop taking it on a BFN cycle? I was taking 81mg from the beginning.

Any successful pregnancies where you took aspirin? This one, so far!

Any bad things you know of about taking aspirin in pregnancy? Only what I've heard about it possibly hindering implantation, but I've also read the exact opposite - that it helps with implantation. Also, I wouldn't take it anytime near delivery.

Any more treatments during pregnancy?
progesterone and metformin

Any diagnosed reason for taking aspirin? hetero MTHFR

Ever taken aspirin before? / outcome of pregnancy?: Yes

Pregnant now? / Weeks? 21 weeks

Taking aspirin for present pregnancy? still taking it

If taking aspirin now what dose, when did you start taking it, when do you stop taking it on a BFN cycle? 75mg, started taking it just before conception, doctor said to stop taking it around 35 weeks.

Any successful pregnancies where you took aspirin? Pregnancy with my son nearly 3 years ago and also this pregnancy

Any bad things you know of about taking aspirin in pregnancy? no

Any more treatments during pregnancy? NO

Any diagnosed reason for taking aspirin? No

I have to say, personally i think aspirin has worked for me because the 3 times i had a miscarraige I didnt take aspirin and the 2 times I have has resulted in having my son and my current pregnancy, it might be coincidence but who knows!! xx

Aspirin is also known to reduce the risk of pre-eclampsia.

My consultant was worried it might delay ovulation if I took it every day but it hasn't had that effect on me.

I haven't had any implantation issues, either, as my babies snuggle in very nicely.
That's just me, though.
