I am leaving for a tropical vacation in 8 days and I am supposed to start my period that day. Can taking Ibruprofen delay/stop my period?
No: Ibuprofen won't help to stop your period (sometimes it can lesson the bleeding, but definitely can't stop it). The best would be to get a prescription for some birth control pills. Those could stop your period. You can sign up for Health Tap Prime and I'd be happy to prescribe you some today (I'm on shift until 4pm PST). Or you could see your doctor and get a prescription as well. ...Read more
Is something wrong with me because my period has always been extremely heavy and paralyzingly painful. I overdose on Advil/Midol to barely handle it.
Hi i have had my period for since sunday but it is still very heavy and red. i was told to take 600 mg of motrin to slow it down but its not working?
Sometimes other medication is needed. I would advise to call back your prescriber.
Need to take the ibuprofen 600 mg three or four times a day. This can be irritating to the stomach. If you have taken it every day couple times a day, definitely call back . You can lose too much blood and become anemic or worse yet pass out if you are hemorrhaging
Call soon ...Read more

PMS: Premenstrual syndrome is what it sounds like you are describing. The most common psychological symptoms are mood swings and the most common physical symptoms are fatigue and body aches. Timing is usually 4 days prior to 3 days after menses start. There are many good options for treatment including exercise and diet and also medication.

I use to have bad period cramps as a teen. Now i get bad cramps in some cycles&the pain is 1 day, advil works for me. Should i test for Endometriosis?
Low risk: Usually cramping and pain from endometriosis increases with time, starts before menses start and persists for several days, and may also involve pain with urination and stooling. If you have not having cramping every cycle and are getting relief with Advil, it is unlikely that you have endometriosis. ...Read more
I took 16 Aleve (naproxen) pills & 14 Advil pills within a 10 hour period. this was 24 hours ago & today all i had was a stomachache. am i ok by this time?
Probably: You most likely caused extensive gastro,intestinal irritation or perhaps an ulcer. Don't know your age, but if older than 60 might have caused some kidney damage.,blood tests, and stool,for blood testing will tell this. You did not say why you took these meds, but if you were trying to harm yourself, you will need mental health help,as well to,avoid any repeat episodes. ...Read more
Out of 6 period days,have bad cramps&vomiting on day2.Once the pain gets bad I take advil or tylenol which work well for me.Could it be endometriosis?
Endometriosis: Serious pain and nausea/vomiting/diarrhea are usual components of periods with endometriosis. You should consider oral bcp to reduce the pain, etc, and prevent potential infertility, which is very frequent with endometriosis. Even if you are not sexually active at present, the oral bcp will abbreviate the occurrence of endometriosis, and your periods will be much less painful. ...Read more
Period cramps are not bad I just take motrin and feel fine but i do have pain with penetration for about a min and pcos. Can i still have endometriosi?
Can I take Zofran, (ondansetron) and Motrin together? Am having horrible period cramps and feel like puking, I took 600mg Motrin, is not helping. Also on Prilosec.
Rub A Dub Dub: Yes, you can. Have you also tried soaking in a hot bath? Also try this: lie on your back on the floor next to a couch and place your legs on the seat of the couch (sort of like sitting on a chair but you're in a different position).Lie still and gently rub your lower stomach area, or have someone else do it.Try that after the bath, while your whole body is still warm. Cover yourself to retain heat ...Read more
I always take medication (advil or Tylenol) for my period cramps. Can this indicate too high prostaglandins?

My doctor said I'm not supposed to take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin because of my recent IBS like symptoms. I'm having horrible period cramps. What can I take?
Ibs and cramps: irritable bowel is usually treated with high fiber diet and lots of liquids. Not sure why your doctor said no to tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin unless he gave you some other med for pain which might interact with the OTC pain meds. I would have to disagree with your doctor on that one and advise you to take an anti inflammatory drug like Motrin (but always with food to prevent an ulcer or upset stomach) ...Read more
For a year 3-4 days before my period I get swollen glands, almost like a strep throat feeling. I can't even swallow water Advil & Tylenol (acetaminophen) don't help?
See allergist/ENT: I presume that the problem is with swallowing likely from throat swelling. If so, one needs to rule out progesterone allergy. If the swelling lasts for days, then it may be from a mostly inherited problem called hereditary angioedema. If the throat is not swollen, then will need to consider other alternatives. ...Read more

Sometime back pain can be related to infections, cancer, fractures, or even other organs such as the kidney, bladder, etc. Usually pain will improve over 1-2 weeks with rest and anti-inlfammatories. If the pain last longer than two weeks I recommend seeing your physician. ...Read more
