ASPIRIN the magical cure for miscarriages??


Hi everyone,

I thought it would be a good idea to set up a thread where we all record if / when we are taking aspirin and if it is working so far or has ever worked! There is so much discussion about it on this forum that it would be good to have everything in one place as a reference point. I hope you think it's a good idea too. Good luck and healthy to everyone.


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

Pregnant now? / Weeks? No

Taking aspirin for present pregnancy? Not pregnant

If taking aspirin now what dose, when did you start taking it, when do you stop taking it on a BFN cycle? Even though not pregnant I am now taking 75mg a day forever more until I finally go to full term! I am not going to stop taking it on a BFN cycle

Any successful pregnancies where you took aspirin? N/A 4th try will hopefully be successful with aspirin!

Any bad things you know of about taking aspirin in pregnancy? Only you have to stop taking it a few weeks before delivery?? And see two posts below! Can stop implantation if taken too soon?

Any more treatments during pregnancy? Yes clexane x 2 a day and progesterone from 6dpo but will stop taking these in a BFN cycle.

Any diagnosed reason for taking aspirin? Not technically diagnosed just suspected 'protein s deficiency' (blood clotting to easily)

Aspirin can stop implantation, why are you taking it?

It can cause so many problems. I'll have to have scans every 2 weeks if I even get past 12 weeks. It can cause still birth and loads of other problems. If it wasn't the only solution for my problem I wouldn't choose to take it.

Hi, I think that what you say is really useful to anyone reading this and it's why I set up the thread because of fantastic success stories and in the opposite case warnings like yours. I'm going to take it for a suspected blood clotting problem, why do you take it, if you don't mind me asking?

Sorry, honey - I think aspirin does benefit some people, but I have always had problems with it (upset stomach, etc.)...

best wishes

I do have a blood clotting problem. I was told to take 150mg of aspirin from the minute I got a positive test, but not before, because it would stop implantation x

I think your thread is a great idea! Here's my answers.

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

Pregnant now? / Weeks? Yes, 9w +5

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? Started taking aspirin at 9weeks after U/S showed a drop in fetal heart rate and slow growth

Any successful pregnancies where you took aspirin? First time trying aspirin

Any bad things you know of about taking aspirin in pregnancy? Doc said low dose aspirin (81mg) won't hurt.

Any more treatments during pregnancy? Progesterone 200mg injections 2x per week, vitamin D3 10,000 IU per day, 4000 mg calcium per day. At 9 weeks started HCG injections 5000 IU 2x per week, 1600 IU vitamin E per day, 2000 mg Vitamin C per day, 2 grams Omega 3 (super Krill oil)

I'm not going to take it unless my doctor suggests it for any reason.

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.

Any bad things you know of about taking aspirin in pregnancy? Only that i'll have to stop it before my section x

Any diagnosed reason for taking aspirin? No diagnosis, taking it as a 'precaution' after i lost my son to placental abruption, he says i have no clotting issues but was willing to prescribe 'just in case' x
