Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like

Yes you can stop now, just so you understand you won't be protected against becoming pregnant anymore.

That said, you still should let your doctor know as soon as possible about what happened so he can examine you later and perhaps prescribe a different medication

Hi there, I have a different opinion. If you stop feanolla now your bleeding will only worsen. Instead of stopping it, the dose of feanolla should be increased to stop the bleeding. The dose can be increased to 4 tablets daily till the bleeding stops. Then you can discontinue the pills. Ofcourse it is better to discuss with your doctor when possible.

Hi. Sorry to come back on but I disagree with the other expert's answer. You shouldn't increase the dosage and stopping it now will not worsen the bleeding. The best option for now is to continue the usual dosage and wait to get in touch with your doctor
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.
Hi there, Feanolla contains very low dose progestin. That can sometimes result in continuous bleeding as uterus lining blood vessels do not constrict and bleeding continues. To prevent the bleeding, you have to increase feanolla dosage. Stopping feanolla will only cause more problems. So the better dose will be 4 tablets of feanolla or at least 3 tabs of feanoall daily for a week to stop the bleeding. We also recommend tranexamic acid tablets but requires prescription.
