Ibuprofen slow down a miscarriage?

I'm in the middle of my second miscarriage and I've been taking ibuprofen when the pain gets really bad. I'll be passing tissue and then when I take the ibuprofen it goes back to just bleeding. I've been bleeding since Sunday and still have not passed the sac (that I know of). The first miscarriage I did not take ibuprofen and it went just fine. Can the ibuprofen be slowing down the process?

Ibuprofin is a blood thinner, the thinner the blood the less pressure to push the tissue out so it could be slowing it down. I would take tylenol Iinstead that way it helps with the pain and you have the force from thick blood to help move the tissue

Lwolfe520, I'm aware not to take ibuprofen during pregnancy. However, I am in the middle of a miscarriage which means my baby is no longer alive so I can't be hurting it by taking ibuprofen.
