The query is related to my Fiancee. She had her periods on 1st of July, but the bleeding hasn't stopped untill today (20th July) . It's 20 days and the flow is also quite more.

She visited a doctor. Below is the initial analysis(Not sure if I have got the spelling right)
O/E not pale, OOS/RS/PA Normal

Upon doctor suggestion, she has tried the below tables which did not help much.
Both are Tranexamic Acid tablets

Welcome to XXXXXXX

Tranexamic Acid exhibits anti hemorrhagic effect by inhibiting activity of plasmin.

As your fiancee bleeding is not controlled with Tranexamic Acid tablets, she will require examination and some tests like testing blood for hormon level, thyroid function, Pap smear, endometrial biopsy and USG etc. depending upon findings on examination.

There are many causes of prolonged menstrual bleeding like uterine fibroid, endometrial hyperplasia, bleeding disorder, thyroid problem, infection, uterine polyp, ovarian cyst, cancer etc.

Please consult an experienced Gynecologist of your area at your earliest. We can not recommend name of any Gynecologist.
