Is Ibuprofen C/I for pregnant lady in the 1st trimester with abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding?
The first thing I would do, since I have had several miscarriages, is find out what is going on with my pregnancy. See or call your OB doc right now. I was told not to take any meds but my prenatal vitamins.
With your vaginal bleeding ... how much and any clots? Call the doc ASAP!
Best of luck sweet,
No - Ibuprofen is not contraindicated in the first trimester of pregnancy.
Up to 30 weeks it is assigned FDA pregnancy Category C and after 30 weeks it becomes an FDA pregnancy category D.
It should not be given after 30 weeks as fetal harm has been observed.
Prior to 30 weeks it may be given if benefits outweigh risk.
As the previous member recommended you should see your doctor to check that all is ok. Acetaminophen is possibly a safer choice of pain killer at this time.
