Ever taken aspirin before? / outcome of pregnancy?: Yes, I took it with my last son and he is a very healthy 8 year old.

Pregnant now? / Weeks? Yes/18 weeks and 3 days

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 started at BFP at 81 mg a day.

Any successful pregnancies where you took aspirin? Yes, my last son.

Any bad things you know of about taking aspirin in pregnancy? None, my Dr. says it can't do any harm. And since I tend to get pre-eclampsia this may help.

Any more treatments during pregnancy? Yes I took progesterone up until 14 weeks and still on intralipid IVs for high NK cells.

Any diagnosed reason for taking aspirin? Not really, but I do tend to have thick blod whenever I am not on it. I always get comments from people drawing my blood that it is "weird". Asprin makes it flow normally when I get blood draws.

Thanks mon, I don't know if you know but I am doing the intralipid drip treatment too along with steroids 40mg, progesterone, and aspirin. I had the first drip at 11dpo and my next one will hopefully be at 8 weeks. How often do you have them? Thanks for adding to this thread x

No I didn't know you were doing the intralipid too! I think we are the only 2 doing that protocol.

I get mine every 4 weeks. My first one was CD 14, then every 4 weeks since. I have had 5 so far. 2 drips ago I had another NK blood tests which still showed elevated NK cells but they had gone down.

My next blood test is on Dec. 27th. If that one is still showing elevated I will get one more drip but probably no more than that according to my Dr. Basically my last drip was at 16 weeks which gets me to the 20 week mark. If I get another one at 20 weeks it would get me to the 24 week mark. My Dr. doesn't feel the need to continue giving them pass that point as the baby is viable. She says her patients rarely need it past 16 weeks.

If it were up to me I would continue to get them just in case but at $750 US a pop my savings are seriously running dry so 1 more is all I can afford at the moment.

I'm pretty sure I had it with my last son too and I never even had intralipids with him, just progesterone and aspirin and he is perfectly healthy.

Personally, I believe, as sad as it is, that whatever is going to happen, is going to happen. I don't want to be depressing, but I don't think anyone can stop a miscarriage from happening.
After my last loss, though it was upsetting to hear, my doctor was right. He said the reason why 99% of live births are with healthy children is that nature takes care of the unhealthy ones.
As much as I would love to have had the chance to hold my daughter, she had a problem from the moment of conception, and had only a 1-2% chance of survival. If life for her was going to be a struggle, then I would prefer to have never seen her than to see her survive, but be in pain...on life support or worse. I know it's really awful, but I've tried to take a positive standpoint.
My heart goes out to everyone. And maybe I'm lucky that I know why my baby left.
But no. I don't believe that aspirin will cure a miscarriage.
And I wish you all the absolute best of luck.
I am taking aspirin after multiple miscarriages. Miscarriages aren't always due to issues with the developing fetus as the OP says . - she miscarried a healthy 9 weeks boy. Quite often, and certainly in my case, I have been diagnosed with AntiPhosphoLipid syndrome which is a blood clotting disorder. Aspirin and clexane thins my blood successfully enough to have a successful pregnancy.
