A report in the British Medical Journal reveals yet another danger of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medication. It seems that pregnant women who take NSAIDs up their risk of miscarriage. The study enrolled 1,462 women in Denmark who had taken prescription NSAID medication during their pregnancies, or during the 30 days prior to conception. In addition, researchers investigated 4,268 women who had miscarriages and 29,750 women who had live births. NSAID use was significantly associated with an increased risk of miscarriage.
