No: Low dose Aspirin is not an effective therapy for this issue. You need to be on subcutaneous heparin. See a rheumatologist or hematologist for appropriate treatment.

I agree you would need to see a rheumatologist or hematologist to be sure the lupus anticoagulant is the cause of your miscarriages, and to plan appropriate treatment should you attempt pregnancy again.
