Yes, it can be taken safely while breastfeeding. Trapic MF (Tranexamic acid and Mefenamic acid) is commonly prescribed to prevent bleeding associated with menstruation, severe loss of blood and other such conditions. It is excreted into human milk at a very low concentration to have any harmful effects in the suckling infant.

Severe vaginal bleeding could be due to some hormonal imbalance or diseases of the ovaries or uterus which need to be properly evaluated by your gynecologist and treated accordingly.

Hope these answer your queries. Let me know if I can assist you further. A feed back is appreciated.
