Symptom Checker

Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Headache in Pregnancy

The headache should resolve as your other symptoms improve. Most pregnant women can take over-the-counter acetaminophen (Tylenol); however, be certain that you don't exceed the doses specified on the bottle. Women with liver disease such as chronic hepatitis should consult with the doctor or midwife prior to using acetaminophen.

If the headache gets worse or doesn't resolve over the next several days, contact your doctor for advice.
