I am about to have IVF with donor eggs and have been reading about the merits of taking baby aspirin to increase chances of, firstly becoming pregnant, but also of not miscarrying. 
When I mentioned this to the nurse at the hospital she told me that this is only necessary if I had miscarried several times before and they wouldn't recommend it.
Surely it is better to take it and not to wait to miscarry first?? 
Are there any adverse results from taking aspirin?

After 3 years of tests and waiting around I just want to give myself the optimum chance of conceiving.  Does anyone have any experience of this?

I was also advised by my clinic to STOP taking baby asprin as it can thin your lining.

Take the advice of your clinic.

interesting....i was told to take it all the way through tx, because it encouraged a thick lining...perhaps its best to listen to your clinic as everyone is different.  m

Thanks for the advice - I guess I should listen to the hospital.  Strange how one hospital has said that aspirin will thin your lining and one says it will thicken!  Surely it can't do both?

Hi Space70

I think it is a personal thing to you.  I heard about baby aspirin on here.

I decided to take it, I also have just done donor egg cycle and I am now 7 weeks pregnant.  Taking the aspirin has done me no harm at all.

Love
