Thanks for the query.
Heavy bleeding during periods is called menorrhagia.
This can occur due to many causes.
For more details :

Femilon is a combined oral contraceptive pills.
This can help in decreasing the bleeding.
But as estrogen is present in the pills that can lead to endometrial abnormalities.
So, according to your age and symptoms, better to undergo ultrasound and if needed D&C once.
This helps for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes.
Then if no abnormality detected in histopathological examination of endometrial tissue, you can go for progesterone only pills to regularize the cycles.
If any abnormality detected in investigations, treatment to be planned accordingly.
Take care.
