Dr. Martin Wodi answered:

Does ibuprofen stop or lighten your period?

Ibuprofen & Period

Advil
Ibuprofen has been shown to reduce the severity of menstrual bleeding in certain women with heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) if taken about a day before menstruation. Ibuprofen acts by inhibiting prostaglandins, the same mechanism through which it also reduces menstrual cramps. If you have HMB see your OBGYN to determine the cause and management modality. Good Luck!!

How much ibuprofen will it take to stop a period?

Ibuprofen

Advil
Ibuprofen is used to control pain during menstruation, it is not used to actually stop a menstrual period. Taking NSAID have been linked to decreased menstrual flow, especially mefenamic acid (ponstel), but not to the point to acutally stop it. See your OBGYN for more info.

Why does your period stop/slow down when taking Ibuprofen? Does that mean your uterine lining is thin/not there? Okay to conceive soon after?

NSAIDs are okay

Menstrual_cycle
Ibuprofen is in the NSAID family; one action is to reduce production of prostaglandins/prostacyclins (PG.) These PG cause constriction and/or relaxing of blood vessels, which is how NSAIDs can work by correcting prostaglandin imbalances and causing vasoconstriction (less bleeding.) No, it doesn't thin your lining unnaturally, and you can try conceiving anytime afterwards.
