I don't know if I'm pregnant or not but If I am can Ibuprofen harm my child during early stages of pregnancy?
My cousin had horrible migraines while pregnant and her dr gave her Tylenol with codene. Maybe that would help....
While it's highly unlikely that taking a single dose of aspirin in early or mid-pregnancy will have a harmful affect, the drug can cause problems for both you and your baby if you take it regularly in normal adult doses while you're pregnant. So, except in a few cases, it's best to avoid aspirin altogether during this time. Here's why: Studies have linked aspirin to various pregnancy complications.
You can take Tylenol for the cramping pain if it's really bad (Midol, ibuprofen, etc. are NOT safe for pregnancy), or try a hot water bottle or heating pad instead. You may also want to start a prenatal vitamin, which you can get for about $10-15 your local pharmacy or grocery store. It'll help the baby if you are pregnant, and it certainly won't hurt you if you aren't.
Keppra, Depakote, Folic Acid = Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy Depo Provera = Birth Control Midol, Ibuprofen = Menstrual Symptoms/Sanity Please, please help. I have an appointment this coming Monday to get a referral to an OB/GYN, but if you might suggest some other things to mention to the doctor, that would be extremely helpful. Thank you so much for your time, happy holidays.
) The RE's nurse said he tells all older women to take those two things, in addition to the prenatal vitamin and progesterone. Beyond that advice, REs really can't do much to make an early pregnancy succeed--they just make you come in for blood tests all the time--although mine did insist on a follow up ultrasound to the 6 week ultrasound. It was at the 9 and 1/2 week ultrasound that we discovered the heartbeat was gone, so however painful, it was good to find out.
Anyone ever have ower back pain in early pregnancy? I had back contractions with my last two miscarriages so I get paranoid. I have back pain with this one, too, but it feels a little different.
I usually have cramping right before my period but I didn't have any this time. Is this change hormonal, stress related or am I ovulating early? Thanks.
I have had two complete round of bloodwork ($1,600 worth) to ascertain that mine is not due to thyroid or any other medical condition (I have history of calcium oxalate kidney stones, early small melanoma and small finding of thyroid cancer both in '07) and all thank goodness came back 100% normal except for the Vitamin D which was 9 on a ref. range of normal being 32-100.
I have been having horrible back pain on my right side in the middle of my back. I have had all symptoms of pregnancy without taking the test. (mother of 2) fatigue, bloating, nausea, sensitive to smells, mild headaches... my periods are always 5 weeks apart. I had spotting after sex about 2 weeks ago. this month I started my period 1 week early and can find no help through stretching, ibuprofen, massage or heating pads for my back.
i know sudafed is listed as a Cat C drug, but am wondering if any of your docs have expressly forbidden/approved its usage during the early 2nd trimester for congestion? considering taking a dose of my kids' liquid sudafed for sinuses.
While the child is still young it probably wouldn't hurt anything that early, but if you are pregnant you cannot take Advil at all, so it wouldn't hurt to get into the habit of taking Tylenol instead.
Also, since Tylenol does not lower it and ibuprofen is contraindicated during pregnancy, then would speaking to my doctor about antiviral medication should I feel the symptoms coming on be warranted? Thank you very much for you time and consideration.
I have horrible cramps and spend a lot of time off of my feet just to help with the pain. My doctor prescribed 800 mg. of ibuprofen and prover progesterone to help stop the bleeding. I am sooooo certain this is related to the mirena. I can't believe I didn't know all the side effects were occurring with women that had the device. I am reading the horror stories now and praying I can feel like myself soon.
That course consisting of trans-dermal phentanyl 10mcg/hr, along with the occassional Flexeril and 800mg ibuprofen. I have been off this course and haven't been taking anything since February this year. Now that it's May and I am about 4 weeks pregnant, should I be concerned? Is it too soon? I am 28 yrs. old and have kept up an exercise routine since January of this year. Please help.
weird betas severe pain - feels like you are miscarrying or worse but with no blood I don't think I had strong pregnancy symptoms early on but then I never seem to. I think you're OK Kris but I know how worrisome it is.
Basically I'm s********** Medications for Chronic Conditions Women with chronic conditions should speak with their providers before becoming pregnant so they can agree on appropriate medications. They should never discontinue their medication discussing it first. "In cases such as diabetes, hypertension, or asthma, patients can become very sick without their medication," says Dr. Lund.
that of course doesn't mean we are all the same and i am sure if he had a problem at birth i would have felt like it was that but i know several people who took it during pregnancy just in small amts for extreme cases.
I also had a herniated disc that was repaired with two corisone shots. (Mine was L5/S1.) I'm now in my 35th week of pregnancy and I've had some mild back discomfort, but it's nothing like the pain I experienced before the cortisone injections.
Just to add on my comment on May 23, 2008. I had my fibroid surgery 2 years ago and trying to get preg after got better from the surgery but no luck. I think HSG played a big role on positive preg test result. Just an opinion...Who knows!
I have had all the normal symptoms of pregnacy but keep getting my usually endo pain, Today I woke with very mild brown blood (sorry if tmi) been to the drs and they have referred me to the hospital tomorrow for an early scan as they fear an eptoptic pregnancy because of the pain, on a scale of pain this is no worse than an everyday niggle we all get.... Should I be worried or is there a chance I might be miscarrying?
I am looking for more info on pregnancy after an endometrial ablation. I had an ablation in May 2002. January 2003 I was not feeling well and went to the family doctor. She thought it may be an ectopic pregnancy since I was told I was sterile. I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue.
I took two home pregnancy tests when it came up positive I went to the hospital because I freaked. Well I'm pregnant. The problem is it is to early to tell is it is a tubal pregnancy or not. So I wait.
I was wondering if any one had heard anything about taking low dose aspirin before conceiving and during early pregnancy. I have had two recent m/c and over the last few months have heard great things about women taking low dose aspirin and having successful pregnancies after m/c. The only problem is that while I have heard from lots of girls that their doctors say it doesn't hurt to take it mine says absolutely not to take any aspirin at all.
like I mean this is personal and I had a feeling I was miscarring deep down but was hopeful I would be wrong and did not want to tell people until 3 months had passed cause then chances were high that the pregnancy was fine according to books at 3 months and who reveals they are pregnant that early anyways? I personally never heard anyone reveal that until 2 months have past at least.
So, then today happens. I had those cramps again, and they were pretty bad, so I took some ibuprofen. Then I got some brown / light pink discharge, which has picked up a little bit to a lighter version of my period. Normally my periods are very heavy (like, a super plus tampon every 1-2 hours). My question is: should I go in for a blood test or assume that I wasn't pregnant and that it was in my head?
