In brief: NSAID

Ibuprofen is known as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug and is used for fever control and anti-inflammation.
It will not stop breakthrough bleeding. It can actually worsen bleeding symptoms - especially if you have a known bleeding disorder. See your physician for any breakthrough bleeding.
