How to Prevent Flooding When on your Menstrual Period


If you are one of those women whose monthly menstrual period is just shy of hemorrhaging, here is a tip that will lessen your blood flow.

No more Bloody Mary

Some gynecologists recommend that women try Ibuprofen therapy to lessen the bleeding during their menstrual periods. Ibuprofen has the opposite effect of aspirin, which thins blood and encourages bleeding.

A day before your period is about to begin, start taking Ibuprofen. If the period catches you unawares, that’s okay. You can begin taking the Ibuprofen at that point.

Ask your doctor how many milligrams you should per day. Some people can’t take Ibuprofen because of its side effects and/or because it’s contraindicated due to some other medication that they’re already taking.

Depending on what your physician recommends some women take as little as 200 mg (one pill) or as much as 800 mg a day, and sometimes more, if the flooding is extreme. However, it is imperative that you discuss this form of therapy with your doctor and let him/her decide whether this course of action is right for you because venturing any further.

If you have your physician’s approval, take Ibuprofen throughout the duration of your period.

Tips & Warnings

  • Ibuprofen sometimes causes constipation and stomach distress. There is no guarantee that this won’t occur; however, your vaginal bleeding will slow down and, in most cases, become manageable.
  • You must consult with your physician before you try this.
