Enlarged Red Blood Cells

I have recently had a CA125 test as I had symptoms of Ovarian cancer and my Grandma has had it. The results came back that my red blood cells were enlarged -103 on the first test. I have had another test done and they were 100 plus vitamin tests were fine. I am trying to conceive and hoping this does not affect fertility. I have been researching and have found alcohol can affect it. I did go to a wedding and have a holiday approx 3 months ago and drank a fair bit then. Could this affect the cells or does it have to be prolonged drinking? Also I am taking baby aspirin could this affect it? Freaking myself out as my Grandma also had lymphoma but died of leukaemia. Thanks for any advice.
