As my menstrual periods are still active but they are normal. shall i take this tab because i came to know that this tablet stops bleeding.

Hi

Trenaxa contains tranexamic acid which helps in reducing the bleeding in women with heavy bleeding.This drug works by preventing the clot to dissolve thereby reducing the amount of bleeding.Hence tranexamic acid does not stop your periods but only reduces the increased flow.I would suggest you to continue the drug and repeat your pelvic scan every 3 to 6 months inorder to observe the growth of fibroids. In case of rapidly increasing size of fibroid or heavy bleeding or abdominal cramps,surgical intervention is required.

During perimenopausal or menopausal period,female hormone levels gradually reduce which will shrink the fibroids spontaneously.Hence any treatment with hormonal contraceptives or pills should be cautiously used which can increase the size of the mass in some women.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
