Hello good Morning! I every period must experience menstrual pain, and it feels very uncomfortable. I have read on the internet, if Ibuprofen medicine can relieve menstrual pain. But is the drug safe to take by nursing mothers? Because I’m breastfeeding. Or is there a safe menstrual pain reliever for breastfeeding mothers?

1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. It is true that not all drugs, even though those which are sold freely and were previously safe for consumption, can be consumed by pregnant and breastfeeding women. This is because there is potential for a portion of the drug to enter the placenta or breast milk and affect the body of the fetus or baby.


Regarding your question, ibuprofen has so far proven safe for breastfeeding mothers to consume as long as it is consumed as prescribed. Although in general, regardless of whether you are breastfeeding or not, if you have a history of acid reflux disease or asthma, taking this medication may worsen your condition.


In addition, menstrual pain or also called dismenorrhea, can be treated also by other means such as warm compresses on the abdominal pain, doing light exercise such as cycling or walking leisurely, bathing or soaking in warm water, taking supplements of vitamin E, B6, omega 3 and magnesium, and doing relaxation.


If all these efforts do not produce results, check your complaint to the obstetrician for further examination and treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
