Hi I am on 75mg aspirin. I started taking it the day I got my positive hpt. Im not sure how long i will be on it but Im think its untill around 36 weeks. I would advise you to speak to your doctor before taking it.
I take 81 mg every other day. I was going to halve it because that seemed like it would make more sense, but my sister is a pharmacist and she said it stays in your system so it won't make a difference doing every other day vs 1/2. Hope this helps!
I'm on low dose aspirin everyday at 75mg. I'm 13+1 and will be taking it until 34 weeks. I'm taking it under the supervision of the best consultant ever - he's a real gem-along with progesterone suppositories. I've had 2mmc and 1 mc in the last 16 months and this is the furthest we've ever got so it must be working! Please consult a medical professional before you take it though - the woman in Boots when I bought my next pot on saturday, along with stretch mark cream nearly had a heart attack when she found out the aspirin was for me!
Good luck x
I have to agree with the other girls. If you feel you need to be on this, discuss it with your doctor. It can cause more harm than good if you don't have a condition that requires it. I am on 81mg every day for the rest of my life pregnant or not due to thrombophilia. In my case, the benefits outweigh the risks. This is not true of all cases.
Much agreed LeaArr! I forgot to mention that I am on the 81mg for the rest of my life also... a condition called APS.. I have to stop the aspirin at 36 weeks I believe, then start again after bubs is born
This condition runs in my family, called anticardiolipin, where blood is thicker and causes clotting, where you can loose baby. It was my full intention to talk to the dr before taking the aspirin, but when I called to ask if my appointment could be moved up to accomidate my possible condition, the secretary said, "You can just wait until your 8 week appointment." I'm not about to risk my baby's life because of an idiot who doesn't understand the condition.
Wow! Is there a hematologist you can go to in the mean time? I was diagnosed by a hematologist and he had told me if my ob/gyn was giving me a hard time, I could go to him. Maybe a hema could see you sooner?
First of all congratulations on your bfp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(I'm an on-and-off silent stalker of yours)
I'm with the other ladies on seeing a haematologist. You may even need heparin injections with your family condition instead of aspirin or both at the same time. I'm not familiar with anticardiolipin, sorry. This is something you should have checked out by a specialist sooner rather than later.
I knew I needed the heparin but couldn't get anyone to prescribe it to me until it was too late and I miscarried (though I don't know whether it was because of this). Next time I'm not taking any risks!
