Should I listen to my doc and start an aspirin regimen to offset risks associated with PFO?

I am a 25-year-old male. During a recent routine physical, my doctor discovered a heart murmur. Subsequent echocardiograms led to a diagnosis of patent foramen ovale (PFO). I have a history of migraines with aura, so it's kind of nice to know that this may be related. Anyway, my doctor said that I should immediately start a baby aspirin regimen to decrease my risk of a stroke. I also have a history of GI problems (IBS symptoms as a kid, occasional bleeding in the stool and other unpleasant things) and am therefore a little apprehensive about beginning the regimen. YANMD, but what do you guys think about whether the stroke risk for a 25-year-old male outweighs the GI risks associated with aspirin?

Take 162 mg of aspirin and call me in the morning

I understand that doctors recommend a prophylactic dose of 81 mg of aspirin daily for alot of adults because 81 mg is the amount in a baby aspirin. But WHY is that the amount in baby aspirin? Why not 80mg, or 85mg? That one milligram can't be too crucial. Can it?
