ASA and fertility/recurrent miscarriage

Hello!  I was curious what your opinion/or latest studies have been showing about asprin 81mg and fertility or recurrent miscarriages was. Is it true that studies are showing that it doesn't seem to hurt for most people, however it may help with people with recurrent late miscarriages? do you know if there has shown to be any benefit for women with recurrent early (1st trimester) miscarriages?   Of course we would contact our doctor before taking anything, but I have been hearing there is a study underway that is showing good results!  Thank you for your time!

This is from the Cochrane Reviews (reliable evidence-based medicine group):
www.cochrane.org/reviews/en/ab004734.html
"Insufficient evidence to say if anticoagulants help women with recurrent pregnancy loss without antiphospholipid syndrome
Recurrent miscarriage has been often associated with inherited blood clotting disorders that could interfere with the placental blood circulation. Anticoagulant drugs for women with recurrent miscarriage and such an underlying blood clotting problem may help, although these drugs may also cause excessive bleeding. There was insufficient evidence from the reviewed trials to judge if anticoagulants help women with recurrent pregnancy loss without antiphospholipid syndrome."

So unless you have an inheritated thromobophilia or antiphosholipid syndrome, there is no evidence to show that baby apirin 81mg would help.
On the other hand the risks of taking a baby aspirin are so low that most doctors would not hesitate to try it.
