In brief: Can't say no effect
Advice by most OB providers is that women of childbearing age avoid toxins always, for their own health, and avoid using medications, alcohol, etc.
During the weeks between ovulation and menstrual bleeding. That approach decreases chances of affecting an embryo or fetus during the crucial early weeks of development of major organ systems. Making list of all exposures for OB provider is important.

In brief: No complications exp
Midol pm contains Acetaminophen (tylenol) and an old antihistamine (benadryl).
In recommended dose, no ill effect on the mother or the fetus is expected to occur. Other forms marketted as midol however, contain nsaids (naproxin, ibuprofen) that are not recommended at any time during pregnancy. Before taking any medications, including over-the-counter, herbal, or supplements, ask your obstetrician.

In brief: Category B
Midol pm is category b.
Category a means definitively no problems during pregnancy. Category b the there is no proven bad effect in humans. So most likely won't be a problem but we don't know about the other medications. Also the amount of exposure ( number of pills and how many days) and the dosis could be an issue.

In brief: Rarely.
Gastroschisis is a condition where the intestines of the baby are partially outside its belly and has been steadily increasing in the U.
S. Teenage moms. One theory is that they consume more vasoactive substances and nsaids (such as midol) during the first trimester before realizing they are pregnant and that impacts the fetal development. In general, however you should be fine with single exposure.
