Women age 65 and older without known cardiovascular disease (CVD), women of any age with established CVD, and women of any age with an estimated 10-year risk of CVD ≥10%, are likely to experience a net benefit from preventive low-dose aspirin therapy and should be considered for such therapy unless contraindicated.
