I’d hesitate to take a daily regimen of asprin without asking…

Hi!  I don’t have a lot of knowledge regarding baby asprin and infertility,… however I did want to share that I am currently taking one baby asprin a day prescribed by my OB b/c I have a history of miscarriages.  (although I just had an early (5-6wks) miscarriage last week, so sadly it didn’t help in this case)  The theory behind my taking it is not to assist in getting pregnant but to assist in keeping the pregnancy.  I guess in some of my previous blood tests it showed that I have an overclotting problem that the baby asprin is supposed to help prevent. 

I did also read that baby asprin may also assist in healthy lining of the uterus as you mentioned so hopefully it can help you!  I just take one per day in the AM. 

Good luck!

Even though you are very healthy, I wouldn’t do this until you talk to your doctor. Even if you feel fine, if something just all of a sudden happens, that would be very scary.

I think you need to talk to your doctor before taking blood thinners on a daily basis. You may be doing more harm than good – and all drugs carry a toxicity risk. Definitely run it by them first.

I’d just call the doc’s office and leave a message with your q or have the doc call you back. No need for an appt and you’re probably fine, but asking would be good.

My RE said I should take a baby asprin daily, but that’s for my clotting issues (revealed during pre-IVF testing).  You’ll hopefully get more info after your DH gets checked.  My DH seemed just fine, but then ended up with a zero count.  If you are worried about your body fighting an embryo, then you need immunological testing to check for things like natural killer cells.  But that’s all down the road after you make sure that everything is fine with your DH.

I would definitely consult with your doctor (not dr. google) before starting a daily aspirin regimen.  I’d like to believe that a doctor would have come up with this on their own if that is what they thought the problem was.
