Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
NSAIDS like ibuprofen should be avoided in pregnancy specialy during 1st and 3rd trimester.

If you are not having any abnormal contractions ,lower abdomen pain or usual discharge you are safe.
Instead of ibuprofen you can use acetaminophen for pain, which is safer option in pregnancy

Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit
