NSAIDs May Raise Miscarriage Risk: Study

TUESDAY, Sept. 6 (HealthDay News) -- Women who take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen during the first stage of their pregnancy may be upping their risk of miscarriage, new research suggests.

"We're seeing a 2.4-fold increased risk in spontaneous abortion following early use of NSAIDs during pregnancy," said Anick Berard, senior author of a paper published in the Sept. 6 issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

Although the study was not a randomized, controlled trial -- considered the gold standard of science -- Berard thinks the results are due to the medication and not some other, unrelated factor.

"We went through a lot of pain and misery to make sure what we're seeing is due to the drug and not a consequence of symptoms [of an underlying illness] or risk attributed to rheumatoid arthritis, for example," said Berard, who is director of the Research Unit on Medication and Pregnancy at St. Justine Hospital in Montreal.

And while the study only looked at prescribed NSAIDs, Berard believes the risk would also be present in over-the-counter NSAIDs.

Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, migraine and various other conditions are routinely treated with pain-killing NSAIDs. The drugs are also used for pain relief in people who don't have chronic underlying illnesses and are one of the most commonly used medications both outside and during pregnancy.

Physicians already shy away from using NSAIDs in later stages of pregnancy because they can interfere with healthy development of fetal circulation, said Dr. Joseph I. Fernandez, division director of obstetrics and gynecology at Scott & White Healthcare in Round Rock, Texas.

Berard and her colleagues looked at a different time of pregnancy: the first 20 weeks.

The study incorporated data on almost 5,000 women in Quebec who had miscarried and compared these women
