Aspirin for Infertility
Aspirin therapy is only available when taken along with Heparin (a powerful anticoagulant medication), and only under the close supervision of a licensed health care provider. Neither drug has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use as anticoagulation therapy during IVF and long-term use of aspirin is not recommended. There is a risk of hemorrhage and prolonged use may actually interfere with fertility by preventing mature eggs from being released from their ovarian follicles. You should not undergo aspirin therapy if you are allergic to aspirin or you experience gastric bleeding or inflammation.
More research on the benefits, side effects, and risks of taking aspirin needs to be performed before it can be recommended to the general public. But if you would like to try aspirin therapy as part of your efforts to conceive, talk to your doctor or reproductive specialist.
