Question: I am 7 weeks pregnant and my doctor has advised me to take Ecosprin 75, since my first child was born with low birth weight (1.9 Kg, pre-term baby, 35 weeks). Please advice if its safe to take Ecosprin 75.

My first child is now 6 years old and I had c-section. He was born in 35 weeks as my water bag bursted. I was in labour for 17 hrs before docs proceeded with c-section as my cervix had dilated only 2 cms.

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Low dose aspirin- Ecosprin 75 mg is given in early pregnancy to decrease the tendency of clot formation so that adequate placental circulation can be established and it decreases the chances of a low birth weight baby and a preterm labor. Since your previous baby was a low birth weight baby, it is best to take the medicines as advised by your gynecologist to avoid any complications in this pregnancy.
You need to watch out for any spontaneous bleeding tendency and get your coagulation profile evaluated every four weeks to see any decrease in platelet count or function early.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The low blood pressure that you are having is not related to the aspirin that you are taking. You can have a healthy diet XXXXXXX in fresh fruits and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables with plenty of fluids to maintain your health and blood pressure.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Hi, it has been a week now since I donated blood and there is terrible bruising along the side and right above where they placed the needle. There is also a stiff tightening pain as I move my arm that goes from my elbow up towards my shoulder. I ve taken aspirin and ibuprofen occasionally to try and ease the pain but nothing has helped. I even tried icing it on and off the first few days after, which was recommended by our American Red Cross donation center. Should I be concerned?

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.



My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.



Thank you.
