Is it ok to have exposure to ibuprofen during pregnancy?

Scientists have recently presented data at the annual ESHRE meeting in Barcelona that reveals the affect that ibuprofen exposure has on the foetus during early pregnancy.

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh and Copenhagen University Hospital in Denmark presented data that showed that exposure to analgesics such as ibuprofen during early stages of pregnancy had a detrimental affect on the developing foetus’ ovarian germ cells.

Earlier studies had previously suggested that there was a possible link between the analgesic and foetal ovarian development, and now recent research presented at the conference has provided an even greater insight into this area of study.
