I am allergic to ibprofen. Can i take it in 26 weeks pregnancy ?

26 weeks and 4 days pregnant and a lot of non stop pain I am 24 yrs old, and am 26 weeks and 4 days pregnant with my 3rd child. I have been having groin/pelvic presure and pain for about a month now, and its only getting worse. Its a constant burning all the time. It hurts to stand, sit, stretch,cough, sneeze, lay down. A couple of days ago the same pain went into my lower back. Same feeling, I do have scolosis so I thought maybe it was that, but its not getting any better. The baby is sitting rather low and has dropped a lot in the last 2 weeks. I am only getting 2 hours of sleep a night and its starting to effect my everyday life. It makes it hard to make it through a shift at work. I called an on call dr through my local hospital he told me to take ibprofen when I know i can t while pregnant not to mention im allergic to it, i told him that and all he could say was I don t know what to tell you then, lay on your side I don t know. My ob doctor says there isn t anything that can be done, she wouldn t even check me to ease my mind, even tho I have had part of my cervix removed and am at a higher risk of going into early labor. I just don t know what to do, the pain is getting worse instead of better.

Hi
Welcome to health care magic
     raise the foot end of bed in which you sleep,lie more on left lateral position.As you have scoliosis so all problem can`t be solved avoid pain killer as they are not completely safe during pregnancy. use local application of gel to get rid of pain.take regular doses of calcium ,iron& multivitamin

I am currently on prednisone (just started) and beginning a week of tapering. I was in complete remission without using meds last fall except for digestive enzymes and probiotics. I got pregnant in January and just gave birth 5 weeks ago, 3 of which have been in a UC flare. I m going to assume this flare came from surgery (c-section) and the disruption of meds to my body. I am highly sensitive to medications and allergic to antibiotics which is why I d prefer to handle my UC as natural as possible. Are there GIs out there that are pro-natural or alternative meds or only prescriptions (conventional). I broke down and started prednisone because I m trying to take care of a newborn and 4 year old. Natural methods take longer and time is not on my side right now.

Hi, my bf and I had dry humping couple of times yesterday. He had 2 boxers on and shorts and I had my panties. We tried to make sure nothing came on me. The next day evening I started feeling nauseous and tired. After a day, I still felt slight nausea but whenever I ate something, it stopped. I urinate a lot too and feel tired. I belch a lot too. My breasts feel a little tender and nipples hurt(i think they hurt because of bf making out on them too much yesterday). Am I pergnant?

I m having an issue with my periods lately. Since I was 12 I got it every month but never knew when in the month I d get it. Often I d get it on holidays or other big events. When I turned 14, they got a lot heavier periods. Pain killers bearly worked. I also just wasn t hungery and could go a whole day or two without eating more than a few bites of food. My mom thinks it might of been an issue inside me that I got from my dad s side of the family. I asked but nothing seemed to match up. Now I m 15. My periods have gotten really weird and it s starting to worry me. I was out and moving a lot over the summer and my periods were almost painless and I could even forget I had it. Once school started for me, I didn t get out as much and my period is more heavy than I remember. Well, at first I just had a lot of spotting for almost a month before I got the full out period. I felt fine for a little bit other than some cramps , but after I moved around and woke up more, I started to feel really sick. I felt like I had a fever , got pale, felt like I was going to puke, and everything in my body seemed to hurt. I had to be sent home it was so bad. This has happened to me before but then I had reason behind it. I thought I was sick from badly cooked food the first time and the other two times I was already sick. But me being in good health other than a runny nose from allergies turning into a fever and sickness when I get my period worries me. I need to find out what s causing this soon because I m tired of having to miss school and other things because of a period that leaves me in so much pain I don t want to leave bed. I ve never had sex and don t take any birth control medication so that takes a lot off the list of what s wrong. Do you know what it might be that s causing my periods to act so weird?

Thank you so much for this opportunity.My name is Sandra prior to this time I haven t seen my period( mestrual cycle) for almost 2 years which was in 2010,but on the 30th of August 2012 my period came and I was very excited but didnt show up in september.The next time the mestrual cycle came was in October 12th 2012.I was scheduled to do an IUI but when the doctor had a virginal scan on me he discovered that the lining of the womb is thin and he placed me on 6 tablets of 2mg progynova daily with primolut N . The question is,is the dose not to high having to take 2 tab -3times daily? I took the same drug in 2010 in another city I was asked to take just 1tab daily so am wondering why the doses high and the safety. thank you so much for your response
