What a good idea for a thread..
I took asprin 75mg with my last pregnancy..that was the only pregnancy tomprogress past 5 weeks. Unfortunately we had to terminate at 17 weeks due to serious heart defect and downs syndrome.., she was a very sick baby.
I take aspirin daily., it has so many other health benefits., reduces stroke risk.., reduces likelihood of pre eclampsia.. Recently reported to reduce chance of developing cancers..
I have been tested for antiphospholipid and lupus anticoagulant but no other clotting disorders.. However for years I have occasionally experienced a sensation in my neck where I have felt blood flow particularly thick and it was usually accompanied by palpitations., been taking aspirin for 10 months now and haven't experienced it since... Sorry a bit long winded but my point is there are several blood clotting disorders which can affect pregnancy., I was only tested for one..
I alsohave a friend of a friend who died while pregnNt with a blood clot on her lung..rare though I know..
Sorry for random comments. Just wanting to share x

thought some of you might want to look at this link, an article this week which discusses a recent study detailing the use of asprin in preventing certain types of cancer

Hi Girls sorry to jump in with a question but i've just been to the hospital to see a consultant as just found out i'm pregnant again [2 mc this year] and he has put me on Aspirin, he said to take 1 in the mornign and 1 in the evening [75mg] - everyone else on here I have read only takes 1 x 75mg so should I ignore him and do the 1 or do 2 as he has told me to [I'm 5 + 4]

I would follow the instructions. I've heard of other people being prescribed 150mg before, and it's a dose I've seen mentioned in studies too. A typical aspirin pill is 325-500mg so 150mg is definitely still considered a low dose.

Definitely go with your doctor's instructions. There are a number of women on here (myself included) who have been on 150mg per day as per consultant's instructions.

I miscarried last year in February at 22weeks pregnant. The doctors have never found a cause as to what caused my little one's heart to stop. I am now currently taking a daily dose of aspirin as a preventative. So far so good we are doing well!!!

Ever taken aspirin before? / outcome of pregnancy?: No never taken it

Pregnant now? / Weeks? Yes/almost 26 weeks

Taking aspirin for present pregnancy? Yes

If taking aspirin now what dose, when did you start taking it, when do you stop taking it on a BFN cycle? I take 80mg a day and started at about 9 weeks pregnant

Any successful pregnancies where you took aspirin? N/A

Any bad things you know of about taking aspirin in pregnancy?

Any more treatments during pregnancy? No

Any diagnosed reason for taking aspirin? None that the doctors can find
