A fever during a pregnancy can upset the development of the fetus, especially if the expectant mother has a fever early in her pregnancy. Most doctors will recommend the use of acetaminophen (Tylenol) during pregnancy to lower a fever. The expectant mother should follow the package directions for the appropriate dosage and remember to ask her doctor before taking any drugs during her pregnancy. Most doctors do not recommend the use of other fever reducing drugs, such as aspirin and ibuprofen, during pregnancy.
