Hi Ajit,
Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions. Trenaxa film-coated tablet contains tranexamic acid and is a antifibrinolytic agent that competitively inhibits breakdown of fibrin clots. It blocks binding of plasminogen and plasmin to fibrin, thereby preventing haemostatic plug dissolution. It is a category B drug which have not demonstrated a foetal risk but there are no controlled studies in pregnant women (other than a decrease in fertility) and there is no evidence of a risk in later trimesters. For short-term management of haemorrhage it is prescribed as 1-1.5 g or 15-25 mg/kg 2-4 times daily. The common side effects are diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, disturbances in colour vision, giddiness, hypotension. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. Thanks

Hi Ajit,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
It is safe to take tranexamic acid during pregnancy.
But the bigger question to be solved is why she should bleed at all.
She might be having threatened abortion please investigated her through your gynecologist.
Get a USG for fetal well being, PT, aPTT, INR and Hormonal levels.
First three months are unsafe for intercourse, with a recurrent bleeding it is absolutely contraindicated.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
