Brief Answer: consider tranexamic acid tablets Detailed Answer: Dear maree, As you have PCOS and irregular cycles the period will be heavy and dark color with clots. It is not something which is abnormal. If you are still bleeding heavily then you can consider taking tranexamic acid tablets to reduce bleeding. Your local doctor will know about this pill. Consider iron supplements to reduce fatigue due to blood loss. Thanks Dr Bhagyashree
