Potentially.: Nsaids (aspirin-like drugs for pain) are contraindicated in the first trimester and could cause fetal loss, gastoschisis and other dire consequences. Aspirin can also increase the risk for gastroschisis, but can also decrease your risk for hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Use only tylenol (acetaminophen) modest doses for aches and pains during pregnancy.
