Dysmenorrhea since teenage, relieves with mefanic acid. Will its long term use affect fertility?

Hi , am 30 yrs old and have been having dysmenorrhoea since age 13. I have been taking mefenamic acid which gives me some relief. I am worried though that since I have been taking it for this long, it might affect my ferility. I only take the drug during my periods only. I am also trying to conceive but not actively. should I be worried?

Hi, J.namaganda,
Thanks for query.
Nothing to worry about fertility as you are taking Mefanamic acid tablet during your period time.
It has no side effect on your fertility.
Ok and bye.
