Lupus, blood thinners, and menstrual periods

Hi everyone. I am 39; dxd with SLE for 9+ years and have recently been put on baby aspirin therapy for APS. I am still having periods (unfortunately). My problem now is bleeding through ultra super absorbent tampons due to thinned out blood. Anyone else have this problem? Does anyone else stop the aspirin during their period...???? Just curious.

Chime in!

I love the suppport that this board offers.
