14 I HAVE A HEADACHE; CAN I TAKE PAINKILLERS?

Your Pregnancy - - Feature -

Gen­er­ally you should avoid all painkillers dur­ing preg­nancy, es­pe­cially in the first trimester. Parac­eta­mol can be taken on a short-term ba­sis but other painkillers, for in­stance as­pirin, are not suit­able for preg­nant women. Try eat­ing reg­u­lar snacks, tak­ing a warm bath, go­ing for a mas­sage, tak­ing res­cue rem­edy and watch­ing your pos­ture for nat­u­ral fixes.
