Period delayed. On dicynone. Will it show results?

I have my period delayed last February, and this month is heavy and not stopping for 12days. This is my first time that I have my menses delayed.Until I decided to see a doctor, and she prescribed Dicynone 500mg tablet to take three times a day for five days..and today is my 3rd day but still there is no improvement in my menses, still the bleeding is heavy..should I wait for the 5th day to see the result?

hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you have menoorhagia, which is not responding to the ethamsylate 500 mg..
you have not mentioned about your age, obstetric history..
you need to get one ultrasound done, CBC, and thyriod profile..
ultrasound to see the endometrial thickness/any lesion/fibriod. CBC for anaemia which will cause increased bleeding and hypothyriodism will cause menoorhagia..
if everything is normal, DUB diagnosis is made, can get a treatment with transexemic acid and mefaminic acid..
if it doesnot reduce hormonal therapy with progesterone may be needed, see your gynaecologist for this..
all the very best.
