When I was visiting the fertility specialist yesterday we asked if there was anything else I could do / take that might help us both conceive and maintain a pregnancy and the one thing he suggested was low dose aspirin.
I’d read about another blogger trying this before but didn’t really know much about it. Apparently there is some research out there that seems to suggest that it helps maintain a pregnancy particularly if the pregnancy problems are related to placenta development issues. Apparently it won’t help you hold onto a pregnancy with chromosonal complications so that is reassuring and the low dose means that it is not harmful.
It must be low dose – 100mg – and you start taking it from the first day of your cycle apparently so next month that is one more string I’ll be adding to this very heavy bow.
Has anyone else out there have any experience with this?
