Im not sure if I'm pregnant. If I am I would be about 3 weeks. My next period isn't due for 7 days. I am having a major headache. Would it be safe for me to take excedrin? Or should I take something else until I'm sure?

If you think you could be pregnant, only Tylenol or natural ways to help.

I took excedrin when I was pregnant.  If you're worried just take Tylenol or Motrin instead.

Take Tylenol instead if you don't want to risk anything.  Excedrin has aspirin in it and you really shouldn't take aspirin while you're pregnant, ever..especially in the first trimester.

Tylenol. I would tough it out though unless I was bedridden.

Motrin is ibuprofen. Not pregnancy safe.

Really?   I took it with all 3 of my kids.  My Dr said it was safe.
