Question: Hi.

I have my wedding on 10.12.2017 for which I need my periods to completely stop by 09.12.2017. I am taking PAUSE MF from 03.12.2017 3 times/day.
My periods have not completely stopped.

Do I need to have some other medications or is PAUSE MF in these circumstances?

Many Thanks

Brief Answer:
No you have to take progesterone.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
Pause MF is homeostatic drug and can be used to decrease bleeding but it can not be used for proponents and postponed your period for that matter you have to used progesterone tablets.
These are prescription medications and for dose and all you have to need doctor prescription.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.

Hi, I am 33 yrs, I have PCOS, hypothyroid and with just one fallopian tube ( Unicornuate uterus on right), and have had 2 miscarriages. I have recently started taking M2tone syrup, but on Clomiphene as per doctor s prescription. Is it safe to take M2tone syrup along with Clomiphene? I live in UK, and here, doctors do not prescribe Progesterone Tablets. While in India, I was given progesterone from Day 20 of my cycle for 5 days. Can I take that, as I suspect, both my 2 miscarriages were due to low progesterone level.
