Hello
Generally aspirin is considered to be to unsafe in pregnancy and you should avoid it altogether.But there are some specific conditions where doctors believe that a low dose aspirin therapy is beneficial.You need to find out why your doctor advised aspirin and if you are risk of some other complication.Talk to your doctor and find out if you are at risk for any of those specific conditions that benefit from aspirin therapy.

My name is Zhanna I am from Indonasia. My menstruation was delay for 1 month, I was breastfeeding still. I felt noises and tiredness, I thought I am pregnant and I did pregnancy test which was negative, so I went to see Gynecologist . He said that I am not pregnant, feeling noises and tiredness also menstruation delay can be during breastfeeding . He advised me to take Primolut. So I took Primolut 2 weeks during my summer holidays, after holidays I stopped Primolut and was waiting my menstruation but it didn t come so I thought I am sick so I went to the doctor to check what is it happening to my health becours I was still feeling noises and tired. I also did e-xray on my nose. After I decided to go to the another Gynecologist to check again and he said that I am 2 month Pregnant. I was surprised and also worried about my baby becours I was taking Primolut during 2 weeks pregnancy. Please advise me can it harm my baby or any side affects Thanks a lot
