Brief Answer:
tablet tranexemic acid advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir, thanks for trusting health care magic.
It is common to bleed excessively after a long duration of missed periods.
In case her pregnancy test was negative then just give her tablet tranexemic acid 500 mg thrice a day till three days or longer in case bleeding persists.
But if bleeding occurs for more than 5 days then get a transvaginal ultrasound at the earliest to see for the cause of bleeding.
In case you have any questions about it, I will be glad to help.
Regards
Dr Manisha
