Hi Becky,

As long as the dose is 75mg, however you take it is fine!
The usual pattern is within 6 weeks of trying - start on the aspirin.

Hope this helps.
Best Wishes
Liz

I was told to take aspirin from 12 weeks, if I am lucky enough to get pregnant again. There seems to be a lot of different advice on this one ...

Hi Jules

Ive only ever heard about taking it pre-conception, I guess they do it on individual cases?

Hi Becky

Good luck with your trying to concieve and I wish you all the best for a PE free Pregnancy.
Samantha took 75mg Aspirin as soon as she found she was pregnant and carried on until she had Dylan and she also took Pregnacare cant remember how long she took this for but it was a while, she called the Aspirin her magic pill.

Take care

Hi Ingrid
