Ibuprofen and menstrual bleeding

Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen and menstrual bleeding


Avatar f tn I went in complaining about it last week and am having an ultrasound to check for cysts, fibroids and IUD placement. I have often worried that in the 11 or 12 years I've had this IUD in that it's either shifted or grown into my uterus. Probably an unfounded worry though. Pretty much the only thing that helps my cramps is Advil (Ibuprofen). Tylenol doesn't touch them. Heating pads are great too.
1582332 tn?1296928465 Hi...I always had intermittent bleeding ( 2 monthlys) and they were heavy.....and I went into early menopause...I did not have my dx at the time so I had no idea...but, I now know I also have a thyroid condition common with us chiarians...Hashimoto's thyroiditis. As Pam pointed out many of us will have to deal with autoimmune issues as well as connective tissue disorders....and Hashimotos is autoimmune. Also check into Ehlers-Danlos as well....
Avatar n tn People don't usually think to do that when they are bleeding too much, but tubal pregnancy is one of the most common causes of abnormal bleeding and pain, and it can be life threatening if it is missed--so even if it is "impossible" GET A PREGNANCY TEST out of the way! If that test is positive--my next suggestion for a patient of mine would be to go RIGHT AWAY to the emergency room and let them handle it from there.
Avatar f tn At times if I take both 2 ibuprofen and midol max it relieves it a bit, and at times excedrin menstrual complete has been the most help lately. Since the condition is something fairly common but not often discussed there is not much help out there. I wish it had a name at least but the Gyno and several general physicians I have gone to just have little information.
1395422 tn?1308019851 Meanwhile, the medical world has had them split into primary dysmenorrhea and secondary dysmenorrhea. The mildest form of menstrual cramps are sometimes just a minor discomfort, a heavy feeling in the abdominal region. Women suffering the most extreme menstrual cramps are sometimes forced to change their regular routine for a few days. In primary dysmenorrhea, there is no underlying physical condition causing the pain.

Avatar f tn I have had abnormal bleeding for years, since high school. I bled for about four years straight every single day in high school. I would soak my gym shorts whenever I did strenuous excercises. Now, I have low back pain. If I do something that causes my back to really start aching, I will start having pre menstrual cramps then full on bleeding with severe gas pain & bloating. I would have to take over 24000 ibuprofen tablets (200mg) in one day to get through & to slow down the bleeding.
Avatar n tn My ablation was unsuccessful and now to make matters worse, I have severe menstrual cramping. I take ibprofen every few hours and it does nothing to relieve the pain. I am sick and tired of being miserable every month. Do you know why my cramping is even more severe now and do you have any suggestions to relieve them? Could it be a hormonal thing?
Avatar n tn I spotted a little and now today on Monday I seem to have dropped my Sac and have had some heavier bleeding. The cramps are pretty unbearable I think they dont tell you how bad it can really be. Well Thank you for listening and to all who have lost keep looking ahead and keep trying.....Someone told me even though it didnt work this time at least I know I can get pregnant so why give up...
Avatar n tn I take more than the recommended dosage of Ibuprofen once a month for menstrual cramps. I initially take 3, 200 mg. tablets at the onset of cramps, then 2-3 about every three hours for the first 24 hrs. I have been doing this for the past 3 or 4 years, and havn't notice any side effects, but have been told that this can cause ulcers. How much can I safely take without causing damage to my stomach or other organs?
Avatar n tn I had this Friday and it is Sunday night and I am having pelvic pain and I am bleeding quite a bit with clots.
Avatar f tn It stopped bleeding and everything is back to normal :) Thank you
Avatar f tn In the morning I discovered that I hadn't even started bleeding. And two days later, I still haven't started my period. There is not a chance that I am pregnant--I have not been sexually active in 9 months. I will go to the doctor but I just can't make it for a couple of weeks due to work commitments so I hope someone here may have an idea of what may be going on. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Everything came out normal, so she recommended ibuprofen 400 mg every 4 hours to help lighten the bleeding. This didn't help. I consulted a reproductive endocrinologist, who ran other tests: progesterone, DHEAS, testosterone, and a 2 hour oral glucose tolerance test. I had an elevated DHEAS and testosterone, and was diagnosed with insulin resistance.
4957231 tn?1361635334 I have constant pain,(high threshold for pain), and have tried ibuprofen and tylenol, they don't touch it. I am trying to figure out what questions I need to ask, and if there is a better medication for pain I can take. I am not a fan of narcotics because they only make me feel like I'm on drugs w/pain, lol. I thought of Ultram, has worked for pain before but it wasn't this kind of pain.
Avatar n tn Hello i am 15 coming up to 16 yrs old and i have been bleedin for 12 days now it has been a mixture of light and heavy bleeding and on the 11th day i started getting period pains. The blood started coming out thick and lumpy and is now starting and stopping again. I also feel tired and irritable and very emotional...is this normal???
12446964 tn?1425527425 You can purchase the capsules from the large stores that sell vitamins and also from a herbal shop. Keep a written record of your menstrual cycles and the symptoms that you get and how your periods are (which I have no doubt that you do). Use a hot water bottle or a heat pack to place on your tummy or your back for pain relief as well as taking pain relief medications as prescribed on the packet.
Avatar n tn Is it possible I have developed an allergy to both Aspirin and Tylenol? What do I do now, move onto Ibuprofen and hope that some how my body doesn't eventually try to reject that as well?
Avatar f tn BTW Menorrhagia is the medical term for heavy menstrual bleeding, if that's what you meant by extreme bleeding, which could be one of the causes of your anemia, if this is the case, it's because of the excessive blood loss. Look into high estrogen, low progesterone (estrogen dominance) as a possible cause of Menorrhagia, which once confirmed, is easily corrected in most cases, by applying a natural progesterone cream.
Avatar f tn i was quickly put on a medication called Naproxen which is similar to ibuprofen as it is an anti inflamitory medicine (i live in the UK and don't know if this medicine will be called this in other countries). i had previously tried ibuprofen itself but it didn't work. within a couple of weeks of being given naproxen my fibromyalgia pains had virtually gone. i also find it isn't at all addictive and have managed to come of it easily several times, although the pain then returns.
Avatar f tn Will my periods be like this every month? Talked to nurse and she just advised Ibuprofen for swelling and thats it! When will my body be back to normal? Please Advise.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with IBS-Constipation Type and given literature on the condition and nothing more. So, I sought a second opinion and this GI also did nothing and told me he didn't think I needed to be scoped - ridiculous in my opinion taking into account my history and active symptoms. I was very displeased and went for a 3rd opinion as I was experiencing severe abdominal pain and spasms, severe constipation, gas and bloating with visible distension and a recent onset of acid reflux.
Avatar n tn I had 5 weeks of bleeding that started in April, 3 weeks clear and then over 2 weeks of heavy bleeding and spotting again. That's how I found out I have ovarian cyst, 3cm. left ovary in May. Started taking birth control pill (alleesee) in June so this is just fairly recent. I was in between heavy and moderate bleeding the last 2 periods but took Ibuprofen since I was hunched over in pain.
Avatar n tn i have had bleeding for 3 months and have bad cramps and blood clots and stopped bleeding for 10 days in that 3 months finly stopped 1 day well should i say more im waiting 1 more mounth then ???????????
5070096 tn?1363139197 Now I have new problems A and B. I use X number of menstrual pads and tampons during (list the days of your period, so the doctor knows when it's heaviest). It helps when I ____, but ____ makes it worse, and ____ has no effect." Just very simple like that. I swear, if one more doctor ever says to me, Well blood in the toilet can be one drop but look like a lot more, I might lose it lol.
Avatar f tn I'm a seventeen year old female, and I had Chiari Malformation Decompression surgery on Tuesday, May 26th. While in the hospital, I'm not sure what medications I had been given, and they were through an IV. The last time I had had sexual intercourse was the 24th of May, and after that, the first time I was sexual active since surgery was Sunday May 31. I've been sexually active every day since then. (Before anyone lectures about my age and the fact that I'm sexually active, just stop.
Avatar n tn I'm not suggesting that you do all of this and ignore something more serious I'm just telling you that the bleeding, pain, and cramping is not always necessarily the worst case scenario.
Avatar n tn 2006 - Went on Yasmin but changed a year later due to an insane amount of bleeding. 2007 - Went on Yaz instead and bleeding was much better but libido decreased tremendously and seven months later, had a HUGE anxiety attack while out of town for a conference. My GP put me on Lexapro, felt good for about 3 months, and then we stepped me off of it because I assumed it was ennvironmental stressors and not linked to Yaz. Two months later, another huge anxiety attack.
415867 tn?1323369103 I had an HSG done a few months back,, and it was fairly quick and I only felt a short cramp.. I also took a Vicoden before hand and I recommend that. Some women take Ibuprofen or Aleve beforehand also. I took the day off and that was it.. you will probably be a little crampy afterwards. As far as your hormone level, such as the day 3 FSH test, the lower your FSH is, the better.
