Thank you for putting up your problem to Healthcare Magic!
Femilon is and combined hormone pill and is likely to decrease the blood loos in both quantity and duration.
Your body system has responded quite bizarre way to the drug, it appears you may be having some other disorder which has got unmasked or just started out of the blue.
You should discontinue this medicine and review to a gynecologist.
You need to start the treatment after consulting your gynecologist.

I hope this information would be both informative and helpful for you

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Tab Femilon usually makes the periods lighter and lesser bleeding is seen . The heavier bleeding is seen in first one or two cycles after which a routine is set. Do continue with the tablets and see the response after 2-3 months.

Such a response is seen after the first dose and you should not worry much about it. It shall subside as you take it.
