NSAIDs also affect fetal renal function, causing decreased urine output. For this effect, indomethacin has been used in the treatment of polyhydramnios. 12 Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) demonstrated a reduction in the amount of amniotic fluid. These effects can be attributed to reduced kidney perfusion and an increase in the circulating vasopressins. Decreased urine output was reversible in most cases, and a study addressing the long-term effects on renal growth, structure or function in 2- to 4-year-old children did not find a correlation with perinatal indomethacin use (Ojala 2001).

However, when the treatment has already begun, the pregnant patient will mainly be concerned about any possible disorder of the unborn. These different cases therefore require different communication strategies. When drug exposure has already taken place, the consultant should avoid vague comments that increase anxiety. Experimentally derived results or unconfirmed hypotheses based on individual case reports should not be referred to, as these could alarm the already anxious patient and perhaps lead to a drastic decision – for example, the termination of a wanted pregnancy based on a misinterpreted product warning such as “inadequately studied”, “experimentally suspected” or “contraindicated in pregnancy”.
