Hi. I was just wondering if anyone is currently taking Baby Aspirin. If so, did your dr recommend it or are you trying it on your own? I've heard a lot of good things about it & I'm thinking of trying it this cycle. I am TTC #1, & am currently 2 DPO, I had my IUI on Saturday. Any success stories out there with Baby Aspirin?

Baby asprin can increase blood flow to your uterus, thus increasing your lining. Hope this helps! We also are on it and no luck yet. TTC since September, 3 IUI's now moving toward IVF. Blessings to you!

Sounds like it couldn't hurt...only help. Good luck with the IVF, TJ. I've heard that many drs recommend women undergoing IVF stick with baby aspirin.

Hey ladies. When you speak of taking baby aspirin, how much and how often are you supposed to take it?

After 11 years of neg preg tests I finally popped up preg. I am now 34 weeks and have been on baby asprin since week 7. I have a positive ANA (diagnosed with connective tissue disease ..)which in my pregnancy 11 years ago caused the placenta to clot and I had very low fluid from 6 months on. I ended up in the hospital at 29 weeks and was induced at 35 weeks. Of course depending on what your doc tells you, I really believe the asprin has made a world of difference for me this pregnancy. My fluid levels are great and my baby girl is growing right on target for her gest. Hopefully in the next 4-6 weeks we will have the baby we thought we would never have again. Wish us luck

Mega I was on low dose (81mg- 1/day)asprin last cycle once I started to hyperstimulate (doctor prescribed) to keep me from clotting. My blood is still thin and I didnt take it this cycle at all. Be careful if you use it without your doc advising you to. (not a successstory with it- sorry)

I'm just at the point where I'm willing to try almost anything. I think I will call my dr though to make sure it's okay. Sal--Just 1 pill a day of the low-dose (81 mgs) aspirin like St. Joseph's or Bayer. Sara, good luck with the rest of your pregnancy! I'm glad this PG is much smoother & healthier for you.

Found this and it made me nervous that taking asprin may cause eggs not to be released so be careful. From website ........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.

Aspirin Side Effects
Aspirin therapy is still being tested for side effects and is currently only available when taken in combination with Heparin. Long-term use of aspirin is not recommended, because it may actually interfere with fertility. Long-term aspirin use appears to prevent a woman's eggs from being released from their follicles, inhibiting ovulation. Aspirin therapy should not be taken by women who are:

* allergic to aspirin
* experiencing gastric inflammation or bleeding

Sara, I was so glad to read your success story. I also have pos ANA, but no disease or clotting problems (even though I have joint and muscle pain). I had 3 chemical pregnancies in a row and i'm so scared to try again. Maybe if i try low dose Aspirin it might help, but I don't even get to 7 weeks! Do you remember what your ANA titre was before you got pregnant and did you get a lot more pain during your pregnancy?

"To Mega"--Well, I triggered last Thurs., so I definitely released my egg, but still that's an interesting fact you found on Shared Journey. Thanks for sharing that. I bought the baby aspirin a couple days ago but I just took it that first day. I decided just to stick with prenatals & see what happens this 2 WW. But good luck to you all currently taking the aspirin, I hope it works for you!

My doctor told me to start taking 1 baby aspirin as soon as the pregnancy test is positive. He said a couple of years ago women were told to take when ttc. Now they have discovered it may decrease your fertility.

I talked to my MD about taking baby asprin and she said all the fertility clinics have thier patients take it to help with implantation. Motrin on the other had can actually prevent implantation from occurring.

Thanks for checking with your dr, mg. It's always best to find out from an expert! Good to know!
