New Study: Ibuprofen Doubles Risk of Miscarriage

By JustMommies

According to new research published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, women should be cautioned against taking any amount of ibuprofen during early pregnancy.

Researchers in Canada studied the effects of a number of NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) on pregnancy including ibuprofen, naproxen, and diclofenac.  What they found was that women who took NSAIDs during early pregnancy (in any amount) were twice as likely to miscarry as women who didn’t take NSAIDs.

The study looked at 4,705 cases of miscarriage; 352 (7.5 percent) of these miscarriages involved women taking NSAIDs.  When compared to another group of women who did not suffer a miscarriage, only 2.6 percent of these women had taken NSAIDs.
