lyn - March 7

Hi All - thanks for your responses in advance. I have heard conflicting reports on ibuprofen. Dr. Spock said its okay during the first and second trimester, but all myh prego friends doctors told them no. I suffer from terrible headaches and I am waiting to find out if I am prego - have until the 13th - not headaches yet, but I feel one coming on - any advice? PS Tylenol works about as well as a sugar pill for me

everything i have read said not to take IB profin at all while ttc because it interferes with the implantation and if it dosnt implant you dont get pregnant, if i were you i would stick to tylonol. hope that helps.

No, Ibuprophen is NOT okay during pregnancy, unless YOUR doctor says it's okay for you. Don't take the chance, it's not worth the risk.
