I couldn’t wait to come back and pass this information along to those who might be trying to get pregnant.
While in England we stayed with two friends (husband and wife) who are both physicians. I had mentioned to her that my legs were extremely sore from all the walking we had been doing, and that I was going to take some Aleve. She also knew that I have never been able to conceive. Then she said something that I had never heard before (even from the fertility specialists I’ve dealt with and worked for in the past) that Naproxen interferes with ovulation!!! :eek: Well, I’m a true fan of Aleve, it is the only thing that helps relieve the arthritis in my back, and bursitis in my shoulders and hips. I’ve used it for ages! So now I have to wonder…have I been my own problem when it comes to infertility and not even knowing it? :shrug:
Anyway - I did a bit of searching and, while there are a ton of references out there, this one seems to be the easiest to understand (not too much medical jargon): fertilityplus.org/faq/nsaids.html
Thought I would pass this along to anyone else who might be trying to get pregnant. Hope this helps!
