Question: Hi Doc,
Greetings !

Last time Tranexemic acid was advised to me for regulating periods
I had my periods for about 15 days and later after having Tranexemic acid tablet for 3 days thrice a day, periods were under controlled, almost stopped, but its not completely stop.
Please suggest what I should do ? Should I continue having tablets until its stopped ?
Do I have to take some medication after its done to regulate.

Regards,

Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Tranexemic acid is given to decrease the flow of blood during periods, it does not helps in regulation of menstrual cycle.
You can continue taking it till periods are stopped.
However, for the regulation of periods, you should be given progesterone hormone cyclically.
You should consult your doctor regarding the appropriate prescription.
