Couldn't find what you looking for?


I'm sixteen weeks pregnant, I took a 800mg ibuprofen earlier today since then I been told that by taking that could cause a miscarriage. My first pregancy; 21 yrs old I terrified that I could possibly lose my child. Is this true, if so what do i do to provent it?


Hi Shawn,

Early in pregnancy there are studies that say it raises the risk and other studies that say it doesn't. 

But, taking just one ibuprofen occasionally is unlikely to cause a miscarriage.  Besides, you aren't "early" in pregnancy.  You are in your second trimester.  In another month the baby can survive on it's own.

Hope it helps.
