Any Experience With Aspirin Therapy

Cabbie - October 13

I have had three miscarriages in the past year. I am now pregnant again. I have two young children who I had through clomid. I had no trouble carrying them. Now I am able to to get pregnant at the blink of an eye but cannot carry it. I have not consulted my obgyn in yet, but mentioned my positive test to my family doc today when I had my daughter in. He sent me for HCG check, progesterone check, and an anti clotting test. He went ahead and put me on progesterone suppositories as a precaution and has recommended that I take 81 mg aspirin per day. I read up on the aspirin and since I have not been diagnosed with a problem, am hesitant to take it due to the problems I read about. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge to let me in on. This is Thurs. He said he would not have my test in until Mon probably (maybe HCG tomorrow). I will call my obgyn after I get test results (I live an hour away from my obgyn). Anyway, any help is appreciated.

I've had 2 m/c. After the last one in July, the dr had bloodwork done. One of two issues they discovered was a clotting factor. I am now taking an 81 mg aspirin every day. I am also taking an extra Vitamin B12 and folic acid supplement, as my other issue was that I was not properly absorbing folic acid. Tomorrow I will be 7 wks. pg. I've had pg symptoms I didn't get the last two times, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes well this time. If your dr. wants you to take the aspirin, take it. My dr. told me to get to the pharmacy that day and start taking it immediately!!! Even if you don't have the clotting issue, you can always stop taking it. Hope this helps & keep me posted on your results!!

Hi, I don't know anything about the aspirin, but i just wanted to let you know that there is a thread about it on the Diet and Pregnancy board with a lot of responses - that may help you out. Good luck!
