OBGYN Dr. Minoo Bhagia's  Response
You have not mentioned your HB level , heavy flow can cause low Hb and the vicious circle goes on , merely taking folic acid will not raise Hb level , you have to take iron if it is below 9 is better to take antiprostaglandins for pain relief.Ibuprofen is not going to affect CBC.
