I've read that ibuprofen is to be avoided in the first and third trimesters but is okay in the second, don't know why, but first of all is it okay to take it as my head is killing me? My box of it says not to but that's probably because they're covering all the trimesters and don't wanna get themselves in trouble. Obviously I don't wanna do my LO any harm but if it won't I'd like to know
Sounds stupid but from what I read, ibuprofen is thought to possibly affect the formation and descending of the testicles in baby boys. And yes, everything I've read said it's ok in the second trimester. I took 2 doses about 6 hours apart the other night and I'm not worrying about it.
I read on here the other day a girl in second tri being offered ibuprofen by the hospital, being worried about it and being reassured it's ok occasionally in second tri (not in first or third though). I know what you mean though, I'd have felt funny about taking it too - can your OH not go and get you some paracetamol...? Hope your head gets better soon
