I have bad period cramps and I took two aspirins 81mg, I weigh only about 80 pounds. I know it thins out your blood but do you think I will be ok?

I have bad period cramps and I took two aspirins 81mg, I weigh only about 80 pounds. I know it thins out your blood but do you think I will be ok?

Yes, dose is low: And should not cause bleeding unless you have a specific bleeding disorder. That dose is low and it is safe to take up to 325 to 500 mg per dose for short periods of time If you have bad cramps, you may also find that 1 naproxen/Aleve will give relief. If you regularly get cramps, I recommend that you start Rx as soon as menses begin, as it is easier to prevent cramps than after they arebad. ...Read more

Is it bad to take aspirin and nurofen together? I woke up with a terrible headache, and took an aspirin. Now I have some bad period pain : (

Ok if short-term use: Nurofen contains Ibuprofen (motrin or advil (ibuprofen) in the U.S.). Aspirin is a similar anti-pain, anti-inflammation drug, but Aspirin can cause more stomach upset. For typical, occasional headaches and/or menstrual pains, using normal doses of either or both on the same day is probably ok (for short-term use). A doctor should evaluate bad pains or prolonged symptoms to rule out more serious problems. ...Read more
