Can I take Asprin? I am 8 months preg. I have no Tylenol on hand and I have a headache!

I wouldn't. Asprin is a blood thinner, and it could cause bleeding. Have you tried acupressure? Grip your hand in between the thumb and forefinger and squeeze, not really hard but hard enough to feel the pressure. Hold it a couple of seconds, and release it. Repeat a couple of times, and it should help. Good luck, headaches are the worst!

actually my dr. has told me that as long as you are out of your 1st trimester then advil is fine. so there is something other than tylenol for you to take. i had awful headaches for a while and he said 2 doses of aspirin per 24 hrs would do no harm. goodluck

Advil is not aspirin. It is ibuprofen. Very different. Call your doctor.

with mommy of 2. It could be very dangerous to take asprin in your 3rd trimester. I can remember reading somewhere that it is not recommend but if it is to be taken it should only be in the 2nd trimester. Hope your head feels better soon.

I have been told by several doctors that the only thing that is safe to take for a headache while prego is Tylenol period. every thing else is either dangerous to the baby or can cause complicaions!!!

I didn't take the Asprin. It really didn't seem like the best idea, but I didn't want to bother my doctors office with the question! I knew I could ask on her and SOMEONE would know! I bought some Tylenol and it took care of it! Thanks.
