Brief Answer: Antifibrinolytic drug Detailed Answer: Hi, It is not correct to give the treatment without knowing the underlying cause that is responsible for the problem. If you don't want to undergo investigations now, you can just take symptomatic treatment with local doctor. Usually in our clinic we prescribe antifibrinolytic drugs like tranexamic acid for this type of complaint. Better to take with your doctor's advice. Take care.
