Health Alert: Common Drug May Lead to Reduced Fertility of Offspring.
Paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen, is commonly taken by pregnant women to help relieve pain, but a new study suggests that this medication may lead to reduced fertility among female offspring. Investigators found that rodents given paracetamol during pregnancy, at doses equivalent to what pregnant woman usually take for pain relief, produced female offspring with fewer eggs. Lead investigator Dr. David Kristensen writes, “Although this may not be a severe impairment to fertility, it is still of real concern since data from three different labs all independently found that paracetamol may disrupt female reproductive development in this way, which indicates further investigation is needed to establish how this affects human fertility.”

Lead investigator Dr. Chloe Barrera warns, “Introducing babies to complementary foods too early can cause them to miss out on important nutrients that come from breast milk and infant formula.”
