Taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) during the early stages of pregnancy may be linked with a higher risk of miscarriage, a study finds. Canadian and French researchers evaluated 4,705 miscarriage cases up to the 20th week of pregnancy among women age 15 to 45. They were matched with 47,050 controls who did not have a miscarriage at the same point in their pregnancy as corresponding women in the other group. Among the women who had a spontaneous abortion, 7.5% had previously filled at least one prescription for an NSAID during their pregnancy, compared with 2.6% of women who did not miscarry.
