Brief Answer:
No primolut tranexamic acid just during menses

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking
Before the IVF menses these tranexamic acid would do no harm as they are taken just for the days during menses and that's fine with IVF. So clear for that. And if pregnancy successful there won't be any more menses any more so bye bye tranexamic acid.
And primolut N is a contraceptive and a progestin supplements. Stop it discontinue it as it is not friendly with pregnancy and conception due to its contraceptive properties.
.progesterone supplements are used rather indicated for at least two weeks in the luteal phase of cycle that is the second half. You Will Be Asked To Use any Of progesterone supplements like Dydrogesterone. Don't use primolut n.
Rest assured stay in touch with your fertility consultant and do as directed and discuss these medications with them too.
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and don't forget to close the discussion please.
May the odds be ever in your favour.
