Can you please tell me how the Ascard can help mesr conceive or prevent a miscarriage?

Hello and welcome to HCM
Ascard is enteric coated aspirin. Enteric coating means that the tablet is coated to prevent dissolution in the gastro-intestinal tract.
Its use is not only limited to cardiac diseases. It is used in conditions like pain and inflammation.
These conditions are rheumatic fever, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythmotosus, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spodylitis etc.

The tests for anti cardiolipin Ig G and Ig M are within normal limits. Lupus anticoagulant is also negative.
This rules out the anti phospholipid lupus anticoagulant (APLA) syndrome.
APLA is an important cause of recurrent abortions, unexplained miscariiages.

See that if you have any of the above mentioned conditions- rheumatic heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis etc.
Aspirin will not directly help in conceiving but help to cure the chronic diseases if you happen to suffer from them.
Please consult your GP for it.

Thanks and take care
