It's highly unlikely that 1 low-dose aspirin a day is going to cause internal bleeding in anybody who doesn't have a stomach ulcer or some such medical ailment. It simply isn-t enough to do that to a HEALTHY person. You should still have your doctor's approval, but she would, in all probability, give the OK, assuming you have no medical issues.

Yes, for many years. I took 2 for a long time because years ago I had 2 blood clots go to my lungs, and after I got off the rx med, I was moved to low-dose aspirin.

YES; since 1990 when I was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse.  This is to prevent the build-up of sticky platelets on the rim of the valve which could break off and cause a mini-stroke or blockage elsewhere.  I've had no problems with "bleeding".

Yes, after 3 stints were put in my arteries, in 2007.  I  take the low dose coated aspirin every day.

HavING vascular tests, which are anything but inexpensive, as one member suggests, sounds like a marginally ok idea before starting to take low-dose aspirin (there's some risk to some common such tests) but who's going to pay for them? You could easily get into the thousands of dollars, and you can bet Midicare and the vast majority (if not all) private insurance companies aren't going to pay. It's an entirely unworkable siggestion for all but those with the resources and desire to pay on their own.

Yes and have since 2007 after I had to have a pacemaker. Dr. recommended.

 

Still in 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have mastectomy.

 

So much for that theory.
