Ibuprofen thins your blood. From what I understand it can cause sever bleeding when it is time to deliver. You can talk to your doctor and sometimes even the pharmacist about the risks. Honestly, I'm not exactly sure why it is so unsafe. However, on my first visit to the doctor, I was informed not to take anything with Ibprofen in it. Tylenol is just fine though.

Anything you do before you find out you are pregnant probably will not affect the baby. Stop taking the ibuprofen now... Stick to Tylenol and Good Luck!

Yes, but it can be more difficult to conceive and when you do and if you are still taking medications like ibuprofen it can cause miscarriages that's why doctors say to try not to take anything but Tylenol when you are in pain or sick
