Usually yes: Typically yes. The risk of bleeding is typically less after 6-12 weeks and there is some protection. Talk to your pcp.

Would not use: Not clear why you might wish aspirin, as you do not describe risk of heart disease, and there are far better items for headaches. Also, problem not with the prior bleed but the effect of Aspirin on delayed blood clotting if you were to have a new hemorrhage, as it would be worse. So, does benefit out way the risks?

No, for at least two: Months. Don't take other blood thinners like fish oil, nsaids (iboprofen, aleve) as well. Discuss this issue with your pcp or neurologist. God bless you!
