Brief Answer:
I would recommend Paracetamol

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Combiflam contains Ibuprofen, which on larger doses is not safe for the fetus.

I recommend you to take plain Paracetmol tablets like Tab DOLO 500 mg not more than three times a day. This will alleviate pain considerably.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
