Q: Anyone super knowledgeable about Baby Aspirin and preventing Miscarriage??

Hi there! I mis-carried in January and we've been trying for the last 2 months and Im hoping this is my month. I had really low HCG w/the last pregnancy and eventually I miscarried. I dont think even a sac was created or anything.

Should I become pregnant this cycle..Im 1 DPO....would it benefit or hurt me to take Baby Aspirin to prevent another miscarriage?? Whats your take on it?

Hi, I'm an Obs and Gyn doctor. There is only good evidence for benefit of low dose aspirin in women who have had recurrent miscarriages - i.e. 3 consecutive miscarriages. Below this there is no good quality evidence to say whether it does or doesnt help. Miscarriages happen for lots of different reasons and the aspirin will only help with a few of these. As charlamomof4 says, there are risks of taking aspirin if you start bleeding. Unfortunately miscarriages are quite common but having one miscarriage does not necessarily mean you will have another. Your risk is no higher than anyone elses. I hope this might offer you some reassurance. Hopefully this will be your month and you have a happy healthy pregnancy. Best wishes.

There is a lot of conflicting information, but as a high risk Mom myself who has miscarried, I was told by 3 OBs and a midwife to stay away from Aspirin in any form because it caused miscarriage! On the other hand I did have to take progesterone shots because I had low pregesterone with my daughter. I bled in all my pregnancies and have 4 healthy babies.
