I am going to apologize in advance for being graphic! turn
I was just diagnosed in Aug with UC
I typically have VERY heavy periods - especially alot of clotting
I will pass clots that are large - quarter size for a few days
(I know...I''m sooooo sorry!)
Here is my dilemma:
I usually take Motrin IB during my period since it helps with the clotting and menstral cramps
Eveyone on this site talks about not taking ibuprofen with UC
I am not having any bloody diarrhea now
Do you think it is okay for me to take ibuprofen for a few days during my period??????

Hope you stay around for a long time.

Did you mean to post on the UC board & accidentally stumbled into Lupus? You may want to repost in UC to get a better quality answer! :-)

michelle - for a suggestion, I would talk to your dr about bio identical progesterone cream. my dr said clotting can be from low progesterone levels
