Aspirin In Pregnancy and During Breastfeed
Whatever medication you are taking, must always consult with your doctor if you are pregnant or think you might be. Taking aspirin in pregnancy presents a danger to the fetus. During the first and second quarter should be taken only under strict medical supervision. In the third trimester of pregnancy Aspirin should not be taken ever.
The use of salicylates (group to which the acetylsalicylic acid) during the first trimester of pregnancy is associated with increased risk of birth defects. It also presents danger in the second quarter. Thus aspirin should only be taken during the first and second trimester of pregnancy under strict medical supervision. Usually not recommended to take more than 150mg daily aspirin during this stage of pregnancy.
In the last trimester aspirin use can lead to abnormal prolongation of gestation, may inhibit uterine contractions necessary for delivery and may be toxic to the child at heart and lung. Moreover, given that aspirin has the effect of inhibition of platelet aggregation, increased bleeding risk during delivery, both mother and infant.
Aspirin in Breastfeed:
Acetylsalicylic acid, aspirin’s active principle passes into breast milk. Thus, women who are breastfeeding nursing babies have to be careful and take aspirin only if your doctor told you to know that the woman is breastfeeding.
The amount of acetylsalicylic acid which is excreted in breast milk is low and, therefore, if aspirin use by the mother is sporadic, not a problem, but if treatment is prolonged or high doses have to consider stopping lactancia1.
In some cases the doctor may wish to prescribe aspirin to a nursing woman. In this case the doctor will prescribe the lowest dose of aspirin required to meet its goal of therapy and the administration should try to be just after breastfeeding the baby, never before. Generally, we recommend waiting three to four hours after taking aspirin until the next feeding the baby. Where treatment involves high doses of aspirin, it is more likely that the doctor may recommend weaning.
If pregnant or think you may be pregnant, or are nursing, do not take aspirin without consulting your doctor. And if you buy a drug that does not require a prescription to check see the prospectus does not contain aspirin and if in doubt consult your pharmacist.
