No, if anything it would increase it. Ibuprofen is a NSAID and they all increase the clotting time of blood.

Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen can help reduce menstrual bleeding - although they are not terribly effective. If heavy flow is a problem for you see your doctor.

We used to use a regimen of ibuprofen to treat heavy bleeding in Depo-Provera users and it was effective in some and not so much in others.
