Hello Ms. Kavithav!!

Tablet Dicynone is containd ethamsylate which is a haemostatic drug , which in turn will help stop your prolonged menstruation as mentioned by your doctor.

Could you help me with your approx. weight and if there was a sudden gain or reduction in the same? All this leads to hormonal disbalance and thus can can affect the menstrual cycles by either prolonging or reducing it.

Have you got any other work-up done regarding the same this time?
Would be able to help you more if you could furnish the above details.
