Question: My mother was having a heavy bleeding for 15 to 20 days and she was advised to take regestrone for 2 weeks continuously and she is fine now.
I think after stopping resgestrone periods will come in 3 to 5 days. as there is some important function and she wanted to postpone it for 3 to 4 days. Can she take regestrone for another 2 or 3 days? Please suggest me.
