Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
You have taken the tablets too late.
If you wished to avoid periods on the 21st, then tablets should have been started from the 15th onwards, that is 4 - 5 days in advance.
Also, the dosage is wrong.
Generally 5 mg twice a day is prescribed and dose is adjusted as per body weight.
Again why would you ' give ' her the tablets instead of consulting a doctor ?
Anyways, there is no known way of stopping periods once it begins.
You can just TRY this - take two tablets of Registrone starting from today.
Hopefully, the flow should stop in 2 - 3 days.
Normally for how many days does she bleed every month ?
Registrone should be started well in advance for its effect in delaying or preponing periods.
Please write in with more details at -
All the best
Take care.
