No, that is too early, you should really be 10-14 days after to be safe.. I'd really recommend even 12-14 days.. ~pawsalmighty

Blood thinners are usually taken to prevent blood clots, they would not harm a healthy heart although they would increase the risk of bleeding in case of accidents or injuries.Different blood pressure medications lower blood pressure by acting on different receptors.

What are the chances of getting pregnant if you make love 8 days to ovulation?

Your question is not clear, but I'll answer it the best I can: If 8 days prior to the true day of Ovulation -- Low but it is possible. Depends on the presence of cervical fluid, the longevity of sperm life (can vary), and how accurately you determined the time of ovulation. If you determined ovulation by basal body temperature then the ovulation event could have preceded this temperature shift by a day or two. (Progesterone causes temp rise and is only secreted by the corpus luteum after ovulation has taken place.) Sperm in good cervical fluid can typically live up to 3-5days. 8 would be a stretch. If 8 days after the true day of Ovulation -- None.
