Default aspirin and guaifenesin

Ok, I know both of these are recomended by some when TTC. I have read conflicting info on it, including a higher rate of M/C, but am not sure how accurate that is. My question is, when do you start these?..How much?...How often?..and for how long?

I remember Tracy telling me, but I can't remember
 


Sorry for all of the questions. I am a rookie at this

I've never used asprin while TTC but I did use guiafenisin.... it did seem to help improve my CM a bit. I'm not sure how asprin would help as it's a blood thinner
 
Hope you find something that works for you

Aspirin is only necessary if you are using Clomid. It helps to build a good uterine lining. Also, eating plenty of red meat will help too, to be honest. I wouldn't take aspirin unless you are doing Clomid, and if you are having IUIs, Guiafenisen isn't needed either as CM production is bypassed with an IUI. If you are doing ICIs then I would take it AND drink more water than usual as it really does help the CM. Did I just talk circles or was I clear? Please let me know if you have anymore questions!

Oh - and if you are doing ICIs and you want to use the Guiafenisen, then start taking it when you are getting close to O and stop after the ICI.
 


I love seeing you and Sponge Bob here, btw!
