Thread: aspirin to aid conception

    Question aspirin to aid conception

    Hi all,



    I have heard that low dose aspirin can help fertility so
    I started taking it at the begining of this cycle. I was taking one tablet (300mg) but i have reduced it to a lower dose of 150, now I read it should actually be 81mg! I'll have to cut the pill into quarters!

    I also read conflicting info that aspirin might inhibit fertility long term but in the short term it can help implantation and help prevent miscarriage. Something to do with aspirin dealing with hostile anti bodies in the uterus and perhaps also helping with blood flow to the uterus. Also that aspirin may help the ovaries release more that one egg.

    Has anyone else taken aspirin, any good results?

    Sassba,
    My fertility specialist told me to take Asterix once a day. its a 100mg asprin. He said it increased the flow of blood to the endometruim and helps with implantation.

    Sass- I have read that baby asprin is best... You can take it in small doses.
    Let us know if it works out for you.

    Hi Girls,
    The information about this is a bit up in the air Ive found. Some say not to do this unless recommened by your fertility specialist or doctor.
    You are correct in the dose being very low at 81mg. It it supposed to be helpful by aid ing in implantation of the egg in the uterine wall, and for producing a positive effect on blood flow to the placenta. It may aid in reducing preeclampsia as well.

    Yet there was an article which said that Pregnant women who take certain types of painkillers, including aspirin, are up to 80 per cent more likely to miscarry. BUT this study was only of 1000 women.

    The new study which you might have read about had only started this year and it going to contuine for the next 5 years and will have around 1600 women.

    I took aspirin for about 2 weeks before ovulating, got a BFP and continued to take it til the 12 week mark. It was my 5th month of trying and I had a healthy pregnancy and have a very healthy son now. I was taking a quarter of a tablet.

    Summer, thanks for a very informative post and always good to know both sides of the story before you embark on sth new ...

    Delta-Blue, how clever you are! Congratulations on such a great result! Can I ask if you have any medical reason to do so (ie. doctor's advice) or your own decision...I like to self-dignose and I think I might have implantation problem ...

    JUst wanted to add the studies have been done on the doseage of Asprin for pain relief.
    The low dose asprin used for recurrent miscarriage and for some fertility issues is very low and has not been shown to cause adverse affects in the studies I have seen. HTH

    BeiBei, I wasn't told by anyone to take it. I had just read about it on the net. I felt I did have a problem with acidity and I read the aspirin neutralises everything making it more sperm friendly.

    Thanks for the comments re Cooper. Those are really old photos, I dont think we have updated for a few months now.
