Thanks for consulting me.

Its a common practice to use Aspirin and Duphaston in pregnancy. Its useful in cases of recurrent miscarriage. Its also used in pregnancies at higher risk of miscarriage.

Low dose Aspirin is safe in pregnancy.

A vast cochrane study has been done on that where several thousand women were evaluated.
Ensure that Aspirin is 75 or 81 mg only and not more.

Duphaston is unlikely to affect fetus, so its advisable to continue both. Aspirin has proven benefits.

Hope, this answers your query.
