Advil?: I am sorry but I was unable to find information on a medication called Advol. Advil is Ibuprofen. It is US FDA pregnancy category: C. "Comments: -Avoid use during third trimester as it may cause premature closure of the ductus arteriosus. -Not recommended in women attempting to conceive as may impair female fertility."
