I just got my new issue of Conceive magazine yesterday and there was an article about how certain pain relievers that contain ibuprofen can affect your fertility because it has a negative effect on your prostaglandins which is necessary for O. I guess it mostly affects people who take it on a daily basis, which would be me! I have been taking Advil Migraine for the past few months on a daily basis because of my constant headaches. I'm not saying that's the only reason I haven't gotten pregnant because we've been trying longer than 3 months, but it could be one of my problems. Anyway, I'm going to stop using it because I had no idea that it could be effecting my fertility. Yikes!
i would not have thought of that.is it an online magazine?[/b]
Nope, it's a regular magazine that you can buy in the stores. The only reason I even get it is someone had posted a link on the main ttc board several months ago where you could sign up and get a free subscription. It's a pretty neat magazine, but I only get an issue every 4-6 months or so.
This is absolutely true. My best friend got pregnant the first month she stopped taking ibuprofen during her LP. She had had 3 miscarriages prior to that and had gone thorugh numerous tests to find a reason and they couldn't pinpoint why it was happening. She read online that it might affect implantation, stopped taking it and got preggers. Now whether that's a coincidnece or not I also have stopped taking it in my LP. I take it during AF only for cramps (I'm allergic to acetaminophen).
