Apparently paracetamol is safe - but Dr told me there were no others I'm afraid.

paracetamol is safe during pregnancy
aspirin and ibuprofen should not be taken

due to my arthritis, i'm unfortunately an expert of what pregnant people can and can't have...

Essentially, Paracetamol is allowed until the last few weeks when Ibuprofen is allowed. To note though, if your girlfriend is experiencing a lot of pain, for whatever reason, then she should go to the doctor.

Like the others have said paracetamol is safe to take. You can also take tylenol (in case you are in the US/Canada).

The doctor offered me something else for my back pain on perscription but I turned it down. Can't remember what it was called though. All I take is paracetamol.
