First week of pregnancy
Hi what are the dangers of taking aspirin or other drugs in the first week of pregnancy? Could you please explain at what period of your pregnancy you should really watch what you take, and be really careful? Please could you explain quite thoroughly. In otherwards, is it not that dangerous in the first week?

Implantation occurs about 10 days after ovulation, i.e. about 4 days before your period is due. Before implantation, nothing from the mother gets across to the fetus.
