    Just wondering if any of you know the official line on baby aspirin? I have read a few ties that it is good to take to prevent miscarriage...? I had a miscarriage in August so Im very eager to prevent it happening again!

    I went in to Boots today to see if I could et some but couldn't find it. When I asked the lady there she said they didn't do it and she wouldn't recommend it - as far as she is concerned it would instigate miscarriage and not prevent it...!??!?

    Anybody taking it? :shrug:

    I don't know the answer but until you know for definite that it can help prevent miscarriage, I wouldn't take it. I'll have a look on google and see if anything comes up.

    THere is some evidence that a low dose of aspirin can help with blood flow to the uterus which some think can help. However, it is a dose of 70mg or lower and should only be taken after consulting with your doc.

    Yes it is something taken that may prevent miscarriage however this is women who have had recurrent miscarriages.

    Its sad that most women will in fact have at least one loss in her life time however some are not aware of this as chemical pregnanies occur around the time a period is due & the woman thinks its her normal monthly :witch:.

    I would NOT recommend taking these without consulting medical advice - a consultant or the epu investigating miscarriages is the better people to advise this medicine.

    I started taking it off my own back but I had confirmed recurrent chemical pregnanices and 1 ectopic neither fragmin (a blood thinner) or hCG shots helped by the time I got to see my consultant I'd read up and seeked advise but didn't just take it after one loss.

    Thanks ladies... Ok I think I will forget it all together. It was just a thought. I think I will consider trying anything! I might mention it to my GP next time I go but Im happy with the information Wobbles has given - it makes sense.

    THanks for your advice ladies!!! :D

    baby asprin is used in people who have blood problems.. sticky blood.
    its usually a diff drug thats the same as baby asprin now. iv read loads on it and i have a friend who took it she needed injections from 35 weeks * i think* 2 clott her blood again so she didnt bleed to much in birth.

    you have 2 consult a dr when taking it and it shoul only be taken if prescribed. if you already have a good flow of blood thinning even more wont do any good.
