IsaacRalph.... originally my consultant wrote in my notes to start aispirin and progesterone straight away if i got pregnant again.... but another consultant has now said there is no 100% proof it makes any difference.... so im a bit confused now.

Tell the second consultant that you want to follow the first consultant's directions and he needs to get off his @ss and get you that progesterone prescription. If you have low progesterone (and they didn't test, so you wouldn't know) that can contribute to early losses. Whether or not there's 100% proof that it helps (and OMG, where did he go to med school that he wants 100% proof, that twit) it doesn't hurt to be on it. Your body will excrete what it doesn't use.

I've taken 81 mg over-the-counter aspirin with all but my first pregnancy, all until 12 weeks, but I was also on a huge dose of estrogen (which can cause blood clots) and progesterone because they were IVF pregnancies, so personal experience says that any low dose, the 75 or 81, should be fine.

Progesterone is used to help provide more nutrition for growing embyro as it helps with the lining of the womb and also apparently helps mothers immune system accept growing embyro. I would defo ask for it and like chellesama said there is no harm done by takimg it and has been well documented to help with women who have had recurrent miscarriage despite not being low of progesterone. Get on that phone they can easily right out a script . Good luck x

Thanks ladies im going to ring the consultant first thing tomorrow... ive been unsettled since he said that as ive heard and read about so many ladies having successfully pregnancies after losses taking it. If it isnt going to coz any harm then why not let me try? How many weeks were you when you started it? X

I started it with my last pregnancy as soon as I got my bfp and again with this one! As they knew I was trying they gave me a script beforehand as it is there for when and if I got a bfp. Literally nothing is 100% neither is taking apsirin but some women have managed to have successful pregnancies with either or when used together. You should defo call tomoz!
