Using gear thickens your blood as more red blood cells are produced giving you better pmps, but also it can be dangerous when it gets too thick so does anyone use asprin to thin their blood a bit?

aspirin doesnt thin blood, it only inhibits platelet aggregation.Platelets are part of the clotting process, they clump toghether to form clots asa makes them less likely to clump together

Might need some help from the peeps on the thickening thing,not sure if it actually "thickens" the blood.Blood thinners are typically used for people with heart dysrhythmias or stroke patients.

81mg of asa will not drop your blood pressure,trust me i'm not pulling this out of my ass.Aspirin is an antipyretic(fever reducer),non-narcotic analgesic(pain),anti-inflamatory .I can go more in depth about it if you still don't believe me.

AAS increases your haematcrit by increasing the number of red cells in your blood. This makes the blood more viscous and the flow is sluggish in smaller blood vessles (eg those in the legs). This slowing of blood flow can precipitate blood clots.
What measures can be taken to avoid these situations?
Best is to keep up with your hydration by drinking plenty of water. If you are not on aspirin, taking half an aspirin a day also helps to "thinned" the blood. Keep active and avoid prolong sitting/lying down. For females, avoid taking the pill.

aspirin 81 mg/day has been shown to decrease cardiovascular events in patients with polycythemia vera (in which red blood cells are commonly elevated). so yea.... it might not be such a bad idea if RBCs are increased due to AAS use.

It won't hurt you just wanted to clear-up that it doesn't thin your blood

Taking aspirin everyday isn't necessarily a good idea. It can HURT you. Aspirin can lead to internal bleeding (stomach or brain), kidney failure, or stroke which can cause immense ammounts of pain and discomfort or even death.
Aspirin works by inhibiting the body's natural thromboxane production. In simple terms, it makes the blood platelets less "clingy." This keeps the blood from clotting or gathering where it might have other wise.
If you're on a self-set aspirin regimen, you should consult a doctor or at least a pharmacist.
In my opinion, it doesn't seem likely that anyone under 35 should really even need to consider a daily dose of aspirin.

AAS have no dangerous effect on the blood. EPO can give you problems. If you want thin blood don't take anything tho. The red blood cells help big time
