HOW EXACTLY DOES FELVIN AFFECT ONE'S PERIOD?
Felvin is a famous drug belonging to a class if drugs known as Non-Steroidal AntiInflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs). Other drugs in this class include diclofenac, Naproxen, etc. Felvin finds immense use in the relief of painful menstrual cramps, and honestly, it has remained the best over-the-counter analgesic for managing painful periods.
Sadly, the drug has been demonized by haters who are envious of its healing properties. They say stuffs like “felvin causes fibroids“. “Felvin causes this and that" without any facts to back up such claims. The truth is that felvin, just as any other drug, has side effects but nothing like some of the stuffs about it out there in public.
Let me explain how felvin affects your period,
1. It reduces period pains by blocking the process that brings about the pain during menses.
2. It reduces the flow because it lowers the production of prostaglandins which are chemicals that cause the womb to contract more and release more blood out of the womb. So, it is expected that one may have a reduction in flow after using felvin or any other NSAID. .
3. Felvin, according to latest research findings, is known to cause temporary infertility. Use of felvin or other NSAIDs has been found to impair ovulation and hence can cause delay in conceiving. However, this delay only happens when one is still taking the felvin or NSAID. Once you stop it, you are good to go. This is why I said it causes temporary infertility. The fact that you have been using it for years does not matter, at least not when ovulation is concerned. So, unless you are trying to conceive, you can still use it safely and only stop when you know that the time has reached to "get pregnant ". I repeat, felvin does not cause permanent infertility. You can still use it for your period pains if you are not planning to get pregnant yet. .
Finally, excessive of NSAIDs including felvin, can predispose one to having an ulcer (peptic ulcer). Don't abuse the drug and you won't have any problems. Abuse it and you will reap the consequences.
