Investigators found that in the 52,000 women who were tracked, the use of common pain killers like ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn) and celecoxib (celebrex), these drugs which are commonly referred to as NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) increased the likelihood of miscarriage by 2.4 times.  The study which was published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal does not definitively prove that these NSAIDS caused the increase in miscarriages, but does agree with some earlier research which came to the same conclusion.

Women who are pregnant and need pain medication may want to ask their physician if acetaminophen is a safer choice.  Many painful, inflammatory conditions like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis are known to get better during pregnancy and no medication at all, may be needed.
