To function during my period I have to take 4 to 6 Advil (ibuprofen) every 4 hours for cramps. What other solutions are there.?
Birth Control Pills:
The inside lining of your uterus grows in response to female hormones, and sloughs during a period releasing prostaglandin hormones. They make your muscular uterine walls contract.

Oxycodone, an opiod narcotic, promotes drowsy/confusion/constipation, response fades & easily becomes addictive, Acetaminophen primary problem is liver damage. Ibuprofen ↑es clotting, thus cardiovascular events. Look up agents on rxlist. Com (ignore adds).

I took 600 mg of Ibuprofen because I was feeling cramps. Will this delay my period for the day if I continue every 4 hours?

So to answer your question - taking advil/ibuprofen will NOT delay your period. ...Read more
