Hello madam,from the history you have given, you may use oc pills (hormonal pills) for regularising your cycle, also use of oc pills for longer duration have protective effect against ovarian cancer. ...You can use antifibrinolytic drugs after consulting your doctor like tranaxemic acid to control bleeding during your periods..i would suggest you to consult your gynaecologist as you may require screening test since you have a family history of ovarian carcinoma......hope i was helpful to you. ....
