7 to 10 days: Aspirin affects your platelet function. Platelets are the first cells to stop bleeding. They form a plug to stop further bleeding. Once you take Aspirin takes on average about 7 days to 14 days to have platelets resume their normal function providing one is also not taking advil, motrin, ibuprofen, Naproxen as well.
