I am a 30 year old female. I had a blood clot at 24 and have been taking baby aspirin every day since I came off Coumadin. I have read a lot about the long term risks of Aspirin on the GI and the brain. I would like to come off my daily dose. Are there long-term effects with my six years of daily 81 mg of baby aspirin? Or if I stop taking it, does the risk of bleeding on the brain also go away? Sometimes, I would take 365 mg for short periods when traveling, but it was mostly the low dose Aspirin. I am worried I have done some kind of damage to the vessels of my brain by taking it for so long, even if I stop now.
