Reasons to Use Baby Aspirin While TTC

I know what you're thinking. Baby aspirin for getting pregnant? Yes, really. Find out all the reasons to use baby aspirin while trying to conceive.

Many couples today trying to conceive quickly find that even after months or years or actively trying to have a baby that their efforts are in vain. Having a baby is the dream of many women and men; a beautiful baby boy or girl that has an adorable smile, chubby cheeks and an infectious laugh. However, sometimes couples have to try other means to make their efforts to conceive successful. From fertility drugs to in vitro fertilization (IVT) and everything in between, there are options both great and small available to help in the process. One such option that can oftentimes get forgotten in the more prominent ones is using baby aspirin to help conceive. Yes, baby aspirin. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Increases blood flow

Blood flow and circulation can greatly help boost fertility levels and the chances of conception because they help provide sufficient oxygen and vital nutrients to the organs responsible for getting pregnant. Increased blood flow helps the uterus, ovaries, the brain (responsible for beginning the ovulation cycle in the hypothalamus) and more to function at a higher rate. The more blood, and the nutrients that are found within it, the more a body is able to work properly to help regulate everything from reproductive hormones necessary for ovulation and conception to thickening the walls of the uterus for embryo implantation. Baby aspirin provides a solid base for increased blood flow and circulation that can help to boost fertility with an end result of conception.

Reduces risks of miscarriage

For women who have already experienced a miscarriage the thought of another one is of a particular worry. In the days leading up to implantation of the fertilized egg onto the uterine wall lining, the chances of an early miscarriage (known as a chemical pregnancy) are fairly high. Baby aspirin works to reduce that risk by helping the uterine wall lining to thicken to an optimal thickness so that the egg is better able to find a solid “home” that will provide a safe environment for the growth and development of the baby. Women who are at risk for miscarriage or chemical pregnancy may have what is known as antiphospholipid antibodies which can cause coagulation problems that interfere with the thickening of the uterine wall and later on threatening the development of the baby. Baby aspirin helps to thin the blood so that coagulation isn’t as likely.

How much baby aspirin should you take?

Brands aren’t important when selecting baby aspirin, however the dosage is. Baby aspirin is only beneficial if it is taken in the right dosage – 81mg; anymore and you risk thinning the blood too much or causing other problems that could risk the pregnancy. Be smart about your dosage of baby aspirin and the benefits it will provide you can help to not only increase your chances of conceiving, but help to prevent miscarriages as well.

    Wow, I had no idea baby aspirin reduced m/c risk! Thanks for the info! How long should you take baby aspirin before TTC, or do you just take it while TTC?

     While it is highly unlikely that taking one dose of aspirin in early and mid-pregnancy will have a harmful effect, the drug can still cause problems for both you and the baby if you take it regularly while pregnant. So, it is best to avoid aspirin while pregnant. But in certain situations, your caregiver may advise you to start taking a small dose of aspirin each day, usually similar to the amount in one baby aspirin. Most experts believe low-dose aspirin therapy is safe during pregnancy. Ultimately, it best to consult your healthcare provider as to how long and how much should you take aspirin while pregnant.

    I thought you could not take aspirin while pregnant? Do you take it before or during?

    I have now suffered two miscarriages the most recent at 14 wks gestation. Am now waiting to go for blood work but in the mean while have heard from various women that taking baby aspirin helps to reduce miscarriage. How true is this? and should I start taking it on my own before my blood work is done?

    I has a mc at 15 weeks, I delivered the baby naturally but had to have a D&C to remove the placenta. I would love to ttc after one cycle though the recommended wait is 2-3. If I start taking a baby aspirin every day will this help thicken the uterine lining enough to where one cycle is safe?

    I am 43 an TTC. I just started taking baby aspirin in the morning. I have three children from a previous marriage and would like one with my new husband. He is younger than I and has no children of his own. I hoping with his “fast swimmers” this will help! Someone also recommended CQ10? They say it helps with egg development? Can you share your thoughts on this? As well as any thoughts as TTC at 43. I am in good health, I am active and eat pretty clean. I also started taking a prenatal vitamin and upped my iron intake.
