I've heard that taking Advil(ibuprofen) is bad altogether, but especially if you're ttc because it prevents implantation. My question is...has anyone ever used Advil to stop their period? Is this bad for you?

i have taken advil and it has not stopped my period, it actually makes my flow more heavy. i don't take it anymore b/c i too have heard it is not good to take. as for stopping my period, that has never happened.

Thanks Nicky. I have tried it a few times and it actually would stop it for a day, then the next morning when I used the restroom, it looked as if I peed blood. Wierd. I should stop doing this completely since they say to avoid advil anyway when ttc. Thanks for the input.

I didn't know you couldn't take advil when ttc. I took advil on oct 27th because i had what I thought was cramp. Next morning I spotted a little haven't seen my af since that morning if you call it an af.

Yes, if you'd like to ready about it online it's available. They say to stay away from Ibuprofen(Advil, Motrin) when ttc....gbaer, when is/was af supposed to come?

Hey J. Well don't really know Im comfused. My last regular af was on sept 13, then on Oct 9th I saw it but it was iregular, by that I mean it was on one day gone the next on one day gone the next. Then in Oct 28th I saw that spotting when I went to the loo but then nothing still to this day. Im usually preatty good on keeping track. If its going to come it should be here this weekend. I guess.

Oh, and my belly is so big I can't fit into my reg pants. I did a hpt but came back bfn. I do have a little cramping buts its been going on for the past 4 days. Unusual for me. If I have cramp that day I will see my af.

Have you talked to your doctor? I'm surprised they haven't asked you to come in for a test(blood test). There could be a chance you're already pregnant. Your af does sound pretty irregular though. Since your pants aren't fitting, maybe you really should consider a blood test.....if you are, by now it should be pretty accurate.

J. I did talk to my dr. she said to wait two week and do another hpt and if no sign of af or a bfn to go for a check up. So I guess im on the waiting side. Its just AAAAA not knowing. I feel like I am but then again I don't want to get my hopes up. Its been a long year ttc.

I can understand your frustration. I've been trying for the last 3-4 months(just got off the pill). All we can do is wait it out and have a good time during the process. They always say not to stress or obsess too much about it because that makes it more difficult. So when the time is right, it'll happen for us.....take care and good luck. Keep us posted.

J. Thanks, I will keep you posted. Its nice talking to someone. Ive been off the pills for over a year and we started trying only 2 months ago.
