Thank you for your query.
Glad to know that you are recovering well from stroke and PFO closure.
Amtiplatelet agents such as aspirin
and plavix (clopidogrel
) are safe and well tolerated drugs, and do not affect the menstrual flow.
However, they do increase the tendency to bleed. So, if you notice any bleeding episodes such as bleeding gums
, blood in urine, blood while passing stools, blood vomiting
, etc, you should stop aspirin and plavix and report that event to your doctor.
A good long term outcome is expected in your case.
