Question: Can you use primulot to temporarily stop problem bleeding while on progesterone only pill.
Answered by Dr. Sameer Kumar 7 minutes later
Brief Answer:
use antifibrinoytics.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query to HCM,
No , if you are having a breakthrough bleed while being on progesterone only pills then it can be controlled with antifibrinolytics like tranexamic acid and not with another progesterone like primolut -n.

I was put on a course of various tablets including tranexamic acid to stop bleeding in the throat, Since I ve stopped taking the tranexamic acid my left lower leg has been painful and swollen, it started easing off for a while and was just mild shooting pains but the past few days the pain has been constant and really sore, it s been quite swollen for 2-3 days but has started to go down now.. It s sore to move and touch, extreme pain when walking and is still sore to even rest, the right leg is completely fine, not actually sure if it has anything to do with the tablets or such, did suspect it was maybe a pulled muscle or something of the kind but can only pin point it too when I stopped the course of tablets, any ideas or suggestions? Thank you
