Women who take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) during pregnancy... are not at an increased risk for miscarriages.
Nsaids include Ibuprofen and Naproxen... and are used by many pregnant women during their first trimester to combat pain, fever and inflammation..
Researchers divided more than sixty thousand pregnant women from a six year period into two groups.
Those who took nsaids... and those who did not.
A little more than eight percent of the women who took these drugs had miscarriages...
Compared to ten percent of the women who did not take them.
Based on the results scientists say they are relatively confident nsaids aren't associated with an increased risk of miscarriages...
Since this study involved a broad and diverse group of women and the team adjusted their results for other factors that could contribute to miscarriage.
They suggest further research into this relationship could be helpful .
Findings appear in the "Canadian Medical Association Journal."
