Thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic. Uterine artery notching is a screening test to predict future development of hypertension. Hence I feel you have been put on Aspirin. But only 20-30% patients will develop hypertension. I advise you not to worry, just have regular Antenatal care.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.
