If you have no other: risk factors for thromboembolic events, then at your age, ASA (platelet inhibitor) is the recommended thromboembolic risk reducer. If you have a CHADSVASC score of greater than or equal to 2 you should be fully anticoagulated. Your health care provider should be able to advise you appropriately in this regard. Make an appointment to discuss it.
