hi all

just a quick update, my laptop went bang and have only just got a new one so thats why ive not been on!
right just a quick bit of advise needed really...... ive heard that taking aspirin can increase your chances of miscarrage andi *think* i had an early mc this month, wont go into detail as its not very nice Sad

what i want to know is even tho consultant has advised taking aspirin whilst trying to increase my chances of a PET free pregnancy........ do you think it'd be ok if i ddnt take it whilst trying but as soon as i know i pg? i will know very early on when i am as we've been trying since july and im doing all the usua TTC stuff.......... any ideas?

thank you!!

I don't really have an answer for you but I am taking aspirin this time round (1st time) although it is still early days for me I am just over 5 weeks I was advised to take it for both PE and recurrent MC. This is my 5th pregnancy and I have had 3 MC.

Maybe speak to your consultant again.

Hi Becky,

There is research that says aspirin can cause miscarriage but the risk is very low & lower still when the 75mg dose is taken to prevent PE. Most of the research suggests it is the normal adult doses that increase the risks further.

Interestingly there is increasing research to show that low dose aspirin may help women who experience repeated miscarriage, particularly if there is an underlying 'sticky blood' syndrome.

I also came across a very interesting study which discussed low dose aspirin & increased dietary omega 3 fatty acids help improve the blood flow velocity across the uterine arteries, although more study is needed to see if improves the out come of the pregnancy.

Hope this helps.

Best Wishes

Every Woman is entitled to understand what happened in her pregnancy when pre eclampsia strikes. I hope to be able to support that process.
