2) Each and EVERY time you take ibuprofen, have at least a glass of milk before you take it, and better yet, something to eat to help with stomach irritation. Not doing this can increase your
chance of stomach ulcers as well, as ibuprofen
increases your chances of bleeding. In your case with having a D&C, you do not want to take too much as you have had a procedure, and you do not want to increase the bleeding.
3) I suggest if you are having pain, rotate the medications you are taking.
