Depends. The main benefit of aspirin is the cardiovascular risk reduction. In patients with either established heart disease or high risk for heart disease the benefits of taking an aspirin outweighs the risk. I see you have high blood pressure but I am not sure of your other risk factors. But if you have them then it is reasonable to take an aspirin every day. .
Individual. From a medical point of view the ? is whether we are using Aspirin for primary or secondary prevention. If you have had h/o cardiovascular disease the answer is a clear cut - yes. But if this is for primary prevention. then all guidelines suggests generally in higher risk women (usually above 55 years of age) aspirin in beneficial. You need to discuss the risks/benefits/rationale with your pcp.
