Definitions for "NSAIDs"
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, e.g. aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Nurofen etc), mefanamic acid (Ponstan), naproxen sodium (Aleve, Naprosyn, or in Naprogesic in combination with dextropropoxyphene), which stop the production of prostaglandins; useful for dysmenorrhea and prior to a hysterosalpingogram. Excessive use at the time of ovulation might predispose to a luteinised unruptured follicle, so NSAIDs should not be used for ovulation pain if you are trying to get pregnant.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines; analgesics available in topical (q.v) and systemic (q.v) for relief of pain and swelling.
non-steroidal anti-inflammatories
