Medication is a concern to most expecting moms and for good
reason. Some medications can cause serious problems to an
unborn child while others have no known effects. For this
reason, it is best to discuss all medications with your doctor
before taking them.
Most doctors agree that acetaminophen, or Tylenol, is the
best choice of pain reliever for pregnant women. While ibuprofen
is not known to cause problems during the first and second
trimesters, it is unsafe for women to take during the last
three months of pregnancy. It has been shown to cause problems
for unborn babies that late in development.
While pregnant, try to stick with Tylenol as your pain reliever.
But if it doesn’t cure your aches and pains, it is probably
okay to take ibuprofen as long as you are not in the third
trimester of pregnancy.
