Aviod Ibuprofen during your period. It causes you to bleed over-accessively. Tylenol works just as well for me.

Thats actually COMPLETELY WRONG! I am 14 and when i get a heavy flow every so often allong with cramps AND vomiting it actually reduces my flow... because its a muscle relaxer so it makes the uterus slow down its contractions... i would know my mom is a doctor. Oh and by the way tylenol is ONLY a pain killer... once it wears off everything comes back again. Ibuprophen releives muscles.

My doctor told me the complete opposite is true -- I take Advil to reduce bleeding and it works quite well.

Same for me. I've suffered with terrible bleeding and clotting for years and the dr. told me to try ibuprofen. Works like a charm, but you have to take 800 mg every 4 hours. Tylenol has the opposite effect, it makes it worse.

I have to totally disagree. I have DUB and Motrin ,any strength, relieves my contractions and slows down my bleeding.

This is totally wrong in my experience. My doctor initially recommended Mortrin (ibuprophen)to me because I had really bad cramping and Tylenol wasn't working anymore...I was taking up to 8 tylenol to relieve my pain, I was too used to it. With Motrin, after having taken it for years, still only need to take 1 or 2 to relieve my cramping, AND it totally reduces my bleeding.

As an OBGYN RN and a Mother of three teenage daughters, I have to agree with the original post. Ibuprofen can cause excessive bleeding as it is a blood thinner. No MD alive would operate on anyone if they have taken Ibuprofen or Aspirin within 24 hours of surgery should the bleeding cause complications. This is a tricky game of what’s worse, cramps or bleeding. If it is the cramps, you are not going to mind the volume of bleeding if it is bleeding you are going to put up with a few more intense cramps. If both are unbearable, you really need to see you OBGYN who will probably prescribe the “Pill” to control the excessive bleeding. Many of our patients are on the three months on the pill with no placebo week then on the third month they have to tough it out and have that period after all. After a few cycles of this most people’s periods will have found their flow more manageable and less excessive.

LOOK THIS IS NOT WORKING OK

I Totaly Dissagree, I am 26 yrs old and have always suffered from very heavy and prolonged flows (up to 3 1/2 weeks at a time)with massive clotting. Since i am not able to use 'The Pill' due to a severe reaction that i get, my doctor told me to take ibuprofen 800mg 3 time a day when i get my period and it works wonders. My flow significantly gets lighter and shorter and with hardly no cramps at all.

I have to agree with the original post also..I can`t take ibprophens for cramps they make me bleeds worst & I also was told that they were a blood thinner (guess they help with the cramps but not with the flow) so I take Aleve they WORKS with the cramps and flow....

I agree with the orginal post and the OBGYN. I went to my gyno and she put me on the pill. Yes it was tough at first but eventually it started to work out very nicely. :) I also have to add that everyone is different and how are body reacts to things is going to be different from others.
