Anything can be possible but 2 ibuprofen should not have been enough to cause a spontaneous abortion (miscarriage) of a fetus. Many women take anti-inflammatories during the beginnings of their pregnancies, before they know they are pregnant, and nothing untoward happens. Ibuprofen is most dangerous in the third trimester when it can cause bleeding in mother and fetus. Most likely, if you were really pregnant, you did not lose because you took ibuprofen so dont beat yourself up about it. Early spontaneous loss of an embryo is often natures way of taking care of a non viable fetus. This means that something was wrong and nature took care of it by not allowing the pregnancy to continue. Keep trying and soon you will have your little one!
