Is it Safe to use Advil during pregnancy?

Created On : March 18, 2015

Though one dose of the medicine is not known to cause your baby any harm, Ibuprofen is not recommended to mothers to be and you should never take it during the third trimester of the pregnancy under any circumstance.

Like most of the other drugs, Ibuprofen or Advil is known to be a Pregnancy Risk Category medicine. It is considered to be a category D medication in the third trimester of the pregnancy. This means that in the third trimester, the medicine is known to cause harm to your baby. The medication is known to cause the passage in the baby’s heart to be closed prematurely and this can lead to heart or lung damage of the baby. Taking the medication in the last few weeks of the pregnancy is also known to be linked with the low levels of the amniotic fluid. These medications are also known to delay and to prolong the labor in some cases.

If you have however taken a couple of doses of the medication during the pregnancy, it is not a concern to be worried about. A small dose is not likely to cause any problems.
