– Pain Relievers (NSAIDs)

Researchers recently have found that using NSAID pain relievers like Ibuprofen and Aspirin while pregnant, can create a hostile environment for unborn infants through the inhibition of blood clotting, making egg implantation more difficult. Acetaminophen, another type of painkiller found in Tylenol, was not found to carry this same miscarriage risk.
