    My daughter is approximately 6 weeks pregnant and has her first OB/GYN appt on 8/4 but yesterday she asked me if she could take Ibuprofen and it's been so long I don't remember. Also at the end of this week she is having some dental surgery and they want to use general anesthesia, is this safe? thank you......
    tbkittycat responded:
    Ibuprofen or Tylenol is OK. Does her dentist know she's pregnant?

    Hi Brittany's Mom!

    Tylenol is what my OB said is okay. He said to stay away from Ibuprofen if possible.

    General anesthesia is NOT okay. Dentists (and OB's) say to wait until the 2nd trimester before continuing dental work. Some dentists (like mine) require a not from the OB stating it is okay for the patient to recieve dental care.

    I had a tooth pulled a couple months ago and all I was able to get was novacain - no general.

    So, your daughter definitely needs to let her denist know she is pregnant - she will probably have to delay the surgery until she is out of the 1st trimester. And she needs to let her OB know that she has dental work pending so they can review what is and isnt okay.
