New aspirin warning.

A new warning, similar to the one on products that contain ibuprufen, will be required on bottles of aspirin. It will read:

"It is especially important not to use aspiring during the last three months of pregnancy unless specifically directed to do so by a doctor because it may cause problems in the unborn child or complications during delivery."

The article states that use of aspirin late in pregnancy may affect fetal circulation or cause uterine contractions.
