Is Tylenol safe during pregnancy first trimester

Tylenol is safe for all stages of pregnancy, even during the first trimester. Generally the benefits of treating your fever or pain with Tylenol out weigh any potential risks of Tylenol. That said Tylenol is a drug and all drugs have potential side effects. Some women avoid all drugs, even safe ones, during the first trimester to minimize any potential risks.

    I think all medication involves a risk analysis - pregnant or not. You have to decide if the risks to your body/your baby's body, outweigh the risks associated with not taking medicine and either powering through the illness, or suffering with it until the baby is born.
