I have been taking asprin for about 15 months while TTC via IVF...My Ob/gyn says "it can't hurt". I have to stop for a few days each time I have an IVF transfer so I don't bleed too much.
If I ever fall pregnant the plan is to go onto heparin or clexane at around 7 weeks and then I'm not sure if I will need the asprin or not.
Good luck with TTC !
Love Lucy XX

What week did you start? Started even before TTC

What week did you stop? OB says I'll stop around 37 weeks if no problems, c-section at 39 weeks

Were there any complications? well, not yet, but only 12 weeks along!

I started LDA while ttc and took it until 35 weeks gestation. I was also on heparin injections twice a day up until 2 days before I delivered. My daughter is 2 weeks old and I did not have any preeclampsia at all with her, but I did have oligohydraminos which caused me to go on bedrest at 29 weeks. I did deliver a healthy little girl though!

What week did you start?
Preconception and lifelong now (thrombophilia)

What week did you stop?
Stopped between week 34 and day of delivery - resumed postpartum

Were there any complications?

I'm assuming your doctor's specific instructions as to the 6-8 week start period is to decrease risk of miscarriage, and the 6 week pp is due to the six week risk of PE?

Started after I miscarried and dr. recommended that I take lda when trying to concieve. I'm 7 weeks pregnant now and will continue taking it until he tells me to discontinue taking it.

What week did you start? My Peri had me start before conception. I started about 1 month prior.
What week did you stop? On delivery day, emergency c-section due to PTL at 36 weeks/7 days.
Were there any complications? None

I had no underlying disorders.

I haven't had bub yet (only a few weeks to go[:D]) but I did start a low dose aspirin as soon as a I fell pregnant. I'm 35.5weeks and we haven't talked about stopping it anytime soon.

Take care, and wishing you lots of luck ttc, love Zoe

What week did you start? Right after we confirmed heartbeat via u/s, I think about 7/8 weeks.
What week did you stop? 36 weeks and three days - the day we found out we'd be delivering in a few.
Were there any complications? Nope!

I think depending upon the reasoning for the aspirin, you'll find there are many differences betweem doctors' recommendations.

A low dose aspirin poll

Postby adgirl » Sat Aug 25, 2007 03:42 pm

For those of you that took or are taking LDA, when did you start it and when did you stop it? I'm asking b/c my Dr. has recommended taking it after about 6-8 weeks and continuing through 6 weeks post partum. I'm concerned about taking it at the time of delivery. What did you guys do, and what was the outcome? (I'm not currently pregnant, but TTC).

What week did you start?
What week did you stop?
Were there any complications?
