Hello.
Thanks for your query.

Ultrasound findings are suggestive of submucous fibroid in the uterus.
I would like to know your obstetric history means the number of children and their age.

In case of bulky uterus with long history of menorrhagia, endometrial biopsy is required.
If fibroid is submucous polyp in the cavity it has to be removed by hysteroscopy.
It is the choice of your doctor whether he or she wants removal of fibroid or hysterectomy if you have completed your family.

Sevista can cause withdrawal bleeding, so it is better to take progesterone like medroxyprogesterone or norethisterone. The dosage should be taken under your doctor's guidance and prescription.

Get your haemoglobin levels done. Take food XXXXXXX in iron.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Regards.

Hello,

Thanks again for following up.

I have reviewed your ultrasound report. It doesn't show any fibroid in the cavity or in the muscle of the uterus. Endometrial thickness also seems normal. The size of uterus is big means it is bulky which is causing excessive bleeding.

Since your children are young and your have not attained menopause yet, you may need to be put on progesterone pills orally or mirena coil can be put inside the uterus which is a reversible method.
Mirena releases progesterone slowly and controls the bleeding within three to four months. It is costly though.
Dilatation and curettage may be planned if the symptoms are no controlled by medical treatment.

You can discuss these options with your gynecologist.

Hysterectomy is the last option which you should keep in mind.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wish you Good Health.

Best wishes

Hello

Welcome back

You can try norethisterone tablets instead of modus. The dosage should be planned by your gynaecologist.
If it doesn't stop, hysterectomy is the only answer.It can be an abdominal hysterectomy or TLH (total laparoscopic hysterectomy) depending upon surgeon's skill

Take care

MODUS 10 HAS BEEN PRESCRIBED FOR MINIMUM THREE MONTHS, BUT FOR IMMEDIATE CONTROL OF BLEEDING, THE DOCTOR HAS PRESCRIBED PAUSE TABLET TWO TABLETS THRICE DAILY. EARLIER ANOTHER DOCTOR HAD PRESCRIBED TRANEXA MF TABLET. WHICH MEDICINE WOULD FASTER ACTION, THAT WOULD CONTROL THE BLEEDING EARLY. WHAT WOULD BE THE DOSE FOR THE MEDICINE.?

Hello.

Thanks for following up.

Pause and Tranexa MF are same thing. Modus is long acting progesterone, controls heavy bleeding.

You can try them as advised by your doctor.

Take iron tablets.

Hope, this helps. Please accept my answer in case you do not have follow up queries.

Wish you speedy recovery.

Regards.

FOR HOW MANY DAYS AT A STRETCH CAN PAUSE OR TRANEA MF BE TAKEN? IS THERE ANY ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS OF TAKING THESE MEDICINES FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Minoo Bhagia 11 hours later
Hello,

I do not give for more than 5-10 days each cycle depending upon the amount of bleeding. Every tablet of Pause MF contains 500 mg of tranexamic acid and 250 mg of mefenamic acid. The maximum dose of tranexamic acid ( which is present in Pause MF) that can be taken is 2 tablets(each of which contain 650 mg) three times a day for 5 days.

If required I switch over to injection tranexamic acid. As such, this agent is not given for a long period of time. The most commonly reported adverse events with tranexamic acid are headache, sinus and nasal symptoms, back pain, abdominal pain, musculoskeletal pain, joint pain, muscle cramps, migraine, anemia and fatigue. So there is nothing to be worried about.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no further queries.

PRESENTLY I AM TAKING PAUSE 500, TWO TABLETS THRICE DAILY. WOULD YOU SUGGEST TO TAKE PAUSE MF IN PLACE OF PAUSE 500, FOR BETTER RESULTS?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Minoo Bhagia 27 hours later
Hello.

Welcome again.

Yes, Mefenemic acid along with Tranexamic acid gives better results. You can get Pause MF prescribed from your treating doctor.

Hope, this helps. Please accept my answer in case you do not have follow up queries.
