Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen and periods

ibuprofen

The same thing happened last year when I took ibuprofen for a sprain, but at the time I never associated it might be from the Ibuprofen. I don't have any health problems and don't have any other symptoms. Can this be a side effect of Ibuprofen in otherwise healthy Kidneys or is this something I should get checked out? Thanks.
When I take Ibuprofen for my period (use it for around 3 days), I break out in a red blotchy rash under my breasts and around my navel. I'm not sure if using a heating pad during this time also has something to do with it as I do not get this rash when taking ibuprofen for other ailments such as a one time use for a headache.
Over the counter like other medications have benefits and risks and interactions with other medications. They all effective and some people can take some and not others. I for instance can not take tylenol because of drug interactions and my liver. Headaches are very complicated mine run with my asthma. The better I am doing with controlling my asthma the less headaches I have.
I am 45 and been having my period for 20 days now. No sign of stopping and now I am have lower back pains like if I am having labor pains. what my be the problem?
I have chronic pain and have previously used medications like morphine, oxycontin, vicodin, valium, steroids and about 2 dozen less known pain/spasm/seizure meds and of all of them; I can't take the ibuprofen. Ibuprofen, like all NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs... Naproxen (aleve), as well as prescriptions like ketorolac (toradol)) can cause many gastrointestinal effects like stomach pain and bleeding ulcers.
For about the last 3 months, we have been giving our toddler, 14 months old, the recommended dosage of ibuprofen for what we believe is teething pain. We might dose daily for a week, then not give any for 3 or 4 days, then dose again for 3 or 4 days, etc. I am worried that, although we always dose the recommended dosage according to the label, that doing so daily for a number of days may cause stomach or other problems. Please let us know if we should not be doing this.
Doctors have their own preferences. Both ibuprofen and acetaminophen can be troublesome in large amounts over prolonged periods. your liver is not in too bad shape so it probably won't make much difference which you use. The best thing to do is follow your doctor's instructions and use whichever is recommended sparingly.
If you routinely take this much Ibuprofen, please see your doctor to determine WHY you are in so much pain, and get something more effective/less dangerous in the long run.
He hit the roof!!! He said ibuprofen is proven to cause kidney damage and should NOT be made for children at all, he's on quite a mission to ban it. Just thought i'd let you guys know. fortunately, i'd only given my lad 2.5ml dose twice and then switched to calpol ( children's paracetemol ) as it wasn't working. Dr. said that wasn't a worry but has told me to throw the calprofen away and use calpol only from now on.
I have gone to the doctor many many times, I have gotten ibuprofen, a low dosage birth control pill, and even estrogen, but none have worked. I only tried the birth control for a week and its been almost a month on the estrogen pill, but still no result and the doctor was sure it would work. I don't know what to do, any suggestions, advice, anything?
You can take acetaminophen (Tylenol) and/or NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), and naproxen (Aleve) to help relieve pain and cramps. Please follow the direction carefully on the medication guide. I see you are taking aspirin already, I hope that helps. If you are already taking aspirin, make sure you are not taking other NSAIDs at the same time. Please consult your pharmacist if you need further assistance.
my prom is tomorrow and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>s are really heavy is there anything i can do to slow it down.
it causes me to curl up, but it only last about a minute. I started birth control in June 08 because I was having about 60 days between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>s and it was very painful. Now I just got finished with my period that lasted 28 days. My normal discharges have started looking like they tinged with blood, sometimes it looks like there are clots in it. The other problems I have been having I'm just not sure if they are related.
I use to have really heavy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>s with lots of clotting and last 5 days at least and heavy cramping to the point where I have to take 400mg of ibuprofen every two hours just to ease the cramps. now I'm down to 1 day of heavy and then spotting for 3-4 days it's not normal at all for me. I'm scared to try and conceive again because if there is scar tissue then I will just m/c again. Not having insurance really S*U*C*K*S.
but if i go i ll not excrete or ll excrete little....and will feel tiered by that... lots of pain will be there near the anus... i want a solution from the doctor...

If you were my patient, the first thing I would try is anti-inflammatory agents such as Ibuprofen or Aleve. Take them as directed around the clock for the first three days of your period. Don't wait until your pain is severe. IF those aren't helpful, the next step might be oral contraceptive pills. These work wonderfully to help reduce period pain and other associated symptoms. Ask your doctor what he/she thinks about a trial of these. Good luck!
These last two <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>s I had very minor cramping, did not have to take pills. I usually live off of Ibuprofen during my periods. I have a doctors appointment next week for a phyical, I am just wondering if anyone else had experienced anything like this? If so what was it and what did you do if anything?
Pain comes suddenly (contractions) and she feels her legs go numb and then blacks out. Ibuprofen was not strong enough which is why she was prescribed Apo-mefenamic and needs to take these every 6 hours.
The pain got so bad i started throwing up and midol nor pamprin would work only ibuprofen. Meanwhile i got a colonospy done and found nothing. I got an edocospy done and they said i had acid reflux which is obvious bcus if the food cant go down it will come back up. I also got a ultrasound and they said things were ok. Fourthly, at first i thought it was just my imagination but then i realised it was real, the blood during my period was coming out my rectal area.
I am a 17 going on 18 year old, and ever since my very first period, when I was 12, I have always had really painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>s. But the we rid thing is that the painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>s only happen every other period, not every single one. Some periods I have just has very little to almost no pain while the next one will be causing me pain that lays me up in bed or on the couch for hours, sometimes days, on end. I have not really changed my routine within the last year, year and a half.
i am 46 years old and for the past few days i've been having very heavy bleeding during my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>s and the pain is absolutley unbearable. i need to know what to eat and what medicine I can take.Every 2 hours or less i keep having to change my pads i also have to put two pads to make sure they dont leak out.
I need something to give me a break does anyone have any ideas. And someone on this site mentioned ibuprofen which if you take 800mg every 4 hours it will stop your periods. is this dangerous? any advice anyone ?
I decided to take Yasmine contraceptive pills for 6 months.Painfull was gone, but I had lighter period and the bleeding was uncommon (thick bleeding).For this month I try do not take Yasmine anymore, but painfull comes again (especially in the fertile period). Please give a solution to solve my problems, and I'm looking forwards to your reply very soon. Thanks before.
At first, he thought it was IBS, so I was put on a wheat-free and dairy-free diet for about 8 weeks and given more pills and tablets to take than I can count. I had blood tests and dairy tests and wheat tests but they all came back negative, though he told me to still keep on the diet. However, this didn't work, and when I told him how the pain was more severe a few days before my period, he said that he now thought it was endometriosis.
My pain is horrible, I'm taking Ibuprofen around the clock and wake up with shooting pain. If this doesn't work she's going to want to do a laparascopy. Thoughts or stories?
Anyway, these periods of suffering only last about a week before the swelling goes down, so its mostly just a matter of endurance until I can get the problem fixed once and for all. I alternate between Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen so as to not put myself at risk of damaging my liver/kidneys, but I find that my body goes through them at a rapid rate, while a bottle may say the pills should last 4 hours, it may only last a quarter of that at times.
The only thing you can do to help with the pain is to take some medications including anti prostaglandins and anti inflammatories such as ibuprofen (ie nurofen) or even just a straight analgesic such as actetominophen. Things such as heat or massage may help as well. Dysmennorhoea often (but not always) gets better after childbirth.
I am not sure if this has any relevance, but I had a miscarriage at 14 weeks in December of 2010 and my breasts havehurt ever since. Particularly the right one, it is sore 24/7 and cannot be touched. At all. I only mention this in case it is relevant, although I doubt it is. on to the relevant information. I would say this all started in December of 2011, about 6 months ago. I got my period approximately 4 days early. VERY painful.
