Hi there, I have understood your concern and I will suggest you the best possible treatment options.

I will suggest you to take Tablet containing Tranexamic acid and Mefenamic acid, 3 times a day to control excessive bleed during periods.
Please seek prescription support for the same from your treating doctor.
Your treating doctor has rightly suggested you to take progesterone tablets. These tablets will be helpful in regulating the menstrual cycle and in preventing excessive bleeding during menses.

I will also suggest you to get USG done, and blood test for thyroid function.
There can be structural reasons like fibroids or polyps got heavy bleeding. Or abnormal thyroid hormone levels can be the another cause.

I hope this answer helps you.

Hello my name is megan i just recently in march had my 2nd child who was premature and born ten weeks early due to an abbrubtion. I then had the mirena iud inserted about six weeks ago and went for my ultra sound yesterday and had to get the iud removed and reinserted today because it moved. My dr told me that i have a backwards uterus he reinserted the iud today and told me theres a possabilty it can move again is this sometging i should be concerened about as ive read stories with people having the same issues and the outcomes were all negative. Durring my pregnancy ive experienced really heavy bleeding for a few months which led to me haven my daughter ten weeks early and when the iud was insereted the first time ive experineced really bad cramps bloating and bleeding im just worried that the iud will dislodge itself again becoming a another problem

Hi. I had my.mirena IUD removed 10/15/14. And after that had a week of bleeding. Since them I ve had nothing. My husband and I have been TTC. But its hard to not know when my period will come. Yesterday we had intercourse and today I m having light cramping. Could this be implantation? Or my period coming?

Transvaginal us states prominent heterogeneous appearing uterus measures 9.9 x 6.3 x 5.2 cm. Endometrial Canal 4.8mm. Right ovary is 5.2 x 3.9 x 4.4 cm and contains a 4.4 x 3.3 x 3.5 cm complex Mass Left ovary indicates a simple cyst. Was seen in the ER for heavy bleeding which has caused me to be anemic. Is a Marina iud a possible treatment for me? Could the cysts be causing the heavy bleeding? I am 47 years old.
