i have been thinking about doing the same thing this month during the 2ww, i feel so helpless during it so being able to do SOMETHING will hopefully make me feel a little better!

anywho i found a few bits of info but i am sure there s alot more out there xkx

Aspirin Studies
Recently, a number of different studies have been performed on the use of aspirin to increase fertility. Women who had experienced multiple miscarriages and who were undergoing IVF treatment were given low doses of aspirin daily. Subsequent pregnancy rates were then compared to pregnancy rates produced by women who received no aspirin therapy. Surpisingly, more than 45% of those women taking aspirin during treatment became pregnant, while only 28% of those women not taking aspirin were able to conceive.

Recent aspirin studies also show that aspirin may be helpful in increasing pregnancy rates in all women. Aspirin appears to increase the activity of the ovaries, allowing them to release multiple eggs during ovulation. It also appears to increase blood flow to the uterus, allowing for a thicker and healthier uterine lining.

How is Aspirin Taken?
Aspirin therapy is taken orally in small daily doses. Also known as baby aspirin, low dose aspirin therapy contains between 78 and 81 milligrams of acetylsalicylic acid. If you are taking aspirin for infertility you should be under the direct supervision of a licensed health care provider.

i also found this post on an old bnb thread:

Baby aspirin - just thought id share this

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

hi girls, just thought id share some info about baby aspirin and ttc/fertility not sure if its been mentioned before

i swear it is magical stuff, and its worked for 3 people i know, including me, when i caught on with my son (now 10mths) i had been taking it after early miscarriages

I first heard about it when ttc with my ex and we had to go to the clinic for help with ttc and i had had 2 early miscarriages. They mentioned baby aspirin and that it helps thicken the womb lining.

its worth a try, all you do is buy it (its about 1.29 for 100 tablets) you can get it over the counter at any chemist/boots etc and you take one a day.

take it each day of your cycle, and when you do get preg you can take it up to 12 weeks. Its completely safe to take as long as you arent allergic to aspirin or have health probs etc. Its such a low doseage (either 75mg or 80mg)

im taking it now, im sure there is something in it.

some clinics recommend it, others dont. But all it does is build up your womb lining. I really do think there is something in it, it worked for me and my friend too this year, after 3 years of her ttc, she took it for 2 months and is now 25 weeks preg!!!! It really is worth a try girls

if you google it (baby aspirin and fertility) it comes up with some interesting info on it

I take baby aspirin daily (75mg) as a migraine preventative on Dr's advice. Don't know much about it's use in TTC but was reassured that it is absolutely safe to use while TTC and throughout pregnancy as it is prescribed to women who have suffered repeated miscarriage. Whether or not it has any benefits for other women I don't know and can't comment on, but both GP and neurologist have told me that that dose is safe to take.

Hi I asked my dr about this today as I've had two miscarriages and she said studies have proved it can help if you've got a proven medical condition why you keep miscarrying. For me she said the cons would outweigh the pros as I have no proven medical condition just unlucky I also have m.e and asthma.

I'm mildly asthmatic Lynda09, but my asthma isn't affected by aspirin so can have it, but as you say pros and cons have to be looked at for each individual.
Think lots of these things are worth talking to a Dr about rather than just self-prescribing as it can't be ideal for our bodies to be taking unncessary medication, and that what helps one person may harm someone else. Know although pregnacare conception is meant to be ideal supplement for TTC and that lots of people on here have talked about it's benefits, for me it's a no go as badly upsets my stomach.

Definitely talk to GP and/or FS Becci. It may well be a very good idea for you from your history of MC - but always best to check it goes with any other medication you're on.

I would deffo talk to your dr I don't think it's a good idea to take all kinds of tablets every individual is different and your going to be taking them for a while not just one off for headache.

im taking it, began it about a week before i ovulated, im 11dpo so yet to have BFP but.. things were looking great, until i woke up with a temp dip :/ hmmm... time will tell lol its worked fine for me so far, no side affects etc i've had 2 m/c and thought id give it a go, im also taking vitex, which ive lowered the dose of; as for aspirin, i could onlyget the 100 mcg ones so just cut a bit off to make it about 80 mcg.. once daily, and ive been told i can take it up to 2o weeks when pregnant; and for me the pros out weigh the cons.. so it is different for each person.

hope this helps a little... GL
