Hi,
Thanks for the query.
Mensovit tablet is used to regularize the menstrual cycles and it is a herbal product.
And most of the other tablets contain vitamins and minerals.
Some amount of irregularity in menstrual cycle is common during perimenopausal age group.
But as your mother is menorrhea for around 20 days better to consult gynecologist once.
After undergoing physical examination and one ultrasound the possible cause for the problem can be identified and treatment can be given.
Sometimes endometrial biopsy may needed.
The medicines she is using may give symptomatic relief but they may not cure the causative factor, so better consult gynecologist once.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.

Hi,
The treatment options depends on the cause.
If she is having only hormonal imbalance, medical treatment may be sufficient.
But if she is having structural problem like endometrial abnormalities, fibroids etc. she may need surgical intervention.
That can be decided only after proper examination and investigations.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
