Yes! My internist advised me to start taking baby aspirin when I turned 50. At age 58 I developed a severe A-fib. The internest told me the aspirin saved my life. So the the heart specialist and the specialist that repaired my heart with an oblation. During my episode with A-fib I had spells with no blood movement as long as 5 seconds. They said this could have coagulated and caused my early death. Thank you doctors for advising this. I am now 77 with no A-fib for all these years since age 58.

I was advised by my wonderful Cardiologist to take a low-dose coated aspirin before I go to sleep to help keep my blood flowing.  I had 2 heart attacks in 2010 with 2 stents, but edhave been healthy ever since, except for the fact that my knees were destroyed by the statins originally prescribed.  I currently take a bi-weekly injectable med that lowers my cholesterol in other ways.  Sorry to get off the subject but heart healthy issues are important!  Thank you.

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".
