If this was your first pregnancy loss, you have a very good chance to be successful on your next attempt.  For a clinical pregnancy loss, I usually recommend waiting for 2 months before attempting pregnancy.  Once you have seen your physician for a post-op visit, they will clear you to have intercourse.  With regards to the baby aspirin and folic acid, this is empiric treatment because of your loss (it will not cause harm to take it, and theoretically, it could be helpful).
