  • tylenol reg strength is fine, if you are cramping bad enough to need meds, call your doctor.

  • It's better not to especially in early pregnancy when the baby's body and organs are forming. Try relaxation techniques, it may help.

  • It's best not to take anything like that in the 1st trimester. Tylnol is safe, but really should be avoided in the 1st trimester. Anything for PMS is a big no-no during the whole pregnancy. Since you're cramping, which can be normal for some moms to be, you really should give your dr a call.

  • Anything for PMS is going to contain caffeine and aspirin. Not a good idea.
