Brief Answer:
switch to antifibrinolytics....

Detailed Answer:
hello,
Thanks for the query to HCM,
Ideally meprate should not be given as its a progesterone and you have come out of high progestogenic state already now, the pregnancy. So you should be opting for antifibrinolytics like tab tranexamic acid 500mg thrice a day for 3-5 days. This shall help you reduce your menstrual bleed.
It is likely to experience heavy bleed with meprate. So you may discuss with your gynecologist again and consider antifibrinolytics instead. You may have intercourse after the bleeding stops but practice protected intercourse.
