Hormonal Medication: Oral contraceptives are used to prevent pregnancies but are also used for pain related to endometriosis, abnormal menstrual periods and other conditions. Adding Ibuprofen to the regimen can decreased pain during menstruation if thats the case, however you must be aware of side effects of all nsaids ( ibuprofen) like stomach ulcers when used on a regular basis.

Effective to take several Loestrin (1.5mg ethinyl estradiol, 30mcg Norethindrone acetate) instead of Plan B emergency contraceptive? How many pills?
EC: Although there are at least a dozen types of birth control pills that can be dosed as an emergency contraceptive, I can find no source that includes Loestrin among them.

Combipatch (estradiol and norethindrone) hormon replacment -- any suggestion or experience any side effects?
Tough in <400 char: Topical cream & transdermal patches for hormone (replacement) therapy appear to be safer than oral. However, it appears that some of the issues over the last decade re HRT may be due to progestin used, eg medroprogesterone acetate (mpa) or provera. Combipatch uses different one, Norethindrone acetate. I prefer vivelle dot (estradiol) & oral Prometrium (micronized progesterone) (bio-identical progesterone) as possibly safer. ...Read more
Combipatch (estradiol and norethindrone): The whi study, which complicated hrt thinking, used prempro (conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone) as its estrogen/progesterone drug to study. This particular hrt was linked to issues such as breast cancer and heart disease (although the study turned out to be very unreliable!).
