Can Ibuprofen stop your period? Michael's Mommy ♥ 1 child; Pensacola, Florida 2957 posts

I've been really stressed out for about 3 weeks & so I've been taking alot of ibuprofen for my back. I had my normal signs that AF was arriving soon, but when the time came, she didn't show. I'm about a week late & on Saturday I took a test that turned up negative. I've read that ibuprofen in large amounts can delay or even stop your period, is this true? & if so, how likely is this to happen?



TIA!

the stress is more likely to make you miss your period then ibuprofen is

I wish!

I've been taking it because I am on my period. Makes me bleed like a stuck pig. I guess it thins my blood.

Probably the stress messing with ya.

Trust me it wont. I was taking almost 40 ibuprofen tablets a day for a few years.
