In brief: Ibuprofen may help
Many women find that ibuprofen, or similar medications for arthritis such as naproxen, can help decrease menstrual flow and any associated cramping.
However, these medications can have serious side effects, so check with your doctor first to learn about these medications and what to watch out for.

In brief: That and other cause
You might find that works, but other causes such as low thyoid need be excluded.
See your pcp or ob/gyn doc.
