    help puberty!
    An_222002 posted:
    I have a 12 yr old daughter getting ready to hit puberty at any time. My question is when she starts menstrating will her aspirin therapy cause problems? She has been on aspirin therapy for 9 yrs, for a clotting disorder. Should she stop while on her period?
    TyPatrick08 responded:
    You should really disguise this with her pediatrician or Hematology. They will have the best answer for you.
    Louise_WebMD_Staff responded:
    Definitely talk to her doctor. I doubt the aspirin therapy will cause an issue during menstruation. I am tempted to say "back in the day" our mothers TOOK aspirin during their periods.
    Boyzmomee replied to Louise_WebMD_Staff's response:
    I am on blood thinning medication and took asprin before that and it did effect my period. The best thing the mother can do is talk to her child's doctor.
