Brief Answer: D&C, Antifibrinolytic drugs Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Usually hyperprolactemia, hyperandrogenism etc can present with menstrual irregularities. But continuous bleeding for 9 weeks is somewhat abnormal. You once consult gynecologist, get examined and go for investigations like ultrasound and thyroid profile. If endometrial thickness is more in ultrasound, once go for D&C with your doctor's advice. And go for injectable antifibrinolytic drugs to control the bleeding. Then you can go for hormonal pills and insulin sensitizers to treat the PCOD. By treating PCOD hormonal levels can come to normal range and menstrual cycles may get regularized. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.
