Mom and Aspirin

My mom has been doing some research on her own and has discovered the benefits of one baby aspirin a day for infertility.
The issue under research currently is whether this low-dose aspirin can also contribute to other aspects of the reproductive process, namely if aspirin can increase the blood supply to the uterus and ovaries. If so, it would mean that the uterus and ovaries would be on the receiving end of a more substantial dosage of serum-carried hormones, improving ovary productivity and thickening the lining of the uterus.
Studies out of the CER Medical Institute in Buenos Aires found that women undergoing IVF treatments who were administered aspirin became pregnant almost twice as often as women also undergoing IVF but who did not take aspirin. This was in part credited to the belief that aspirin contributed to an increase in egg production.
According to a study published in Fertility and Sterility, "Low dose aspirin treatment significantly improves ovarian response, uterine and ovarian blood flow velocity, implantation rate and pregnancy rate in patients undergoing IVF. Aspirin seems to be a useful, effective and safe treatment in patients who undergo assisted reproductive technologies."

Hmmmm,I know we are not doing IVF but if 1 little baby aspirin a day could help - sign me up! Thanks Mom!
