I took mefenemic acid and it stopped the bleeding. After three days it started again. Should I take mefenemic acid again or start primulot?

I think you should just wait it out. Every time you try to do something to stop it, it will make it worse.

How long does a prolonged period take to stop on its own?

Unfortunately sometimes the bleeding lasts on and off for the month But it usually resolves on its own as soon as your next period starts.

Hi so the bleeding stopped and then started again after a week which I'm assuming is my period for October. It's been seven days now and it still hasn't stopped. My normal period lasts five days. What should I do?

You shouldnt do anything It sounds like you need to do something long term though, like consider the birth control pill for cycle control

But I'm trying to get pregnant. Should I take norethisterone?

No because you wont get pregnant with that treatememt

Should I just wait for the cycle to get better on its own? Will it get better on its own?

No it is not likely to get better on its own. The more medications you take, the worse you make it. If you have been trying to conceive a year or more with no success, it is time to see a Dr Please click on a rating for the time I have spent helping you thanks

My gp gave me tranxemic acid 500mg 2 tablets 3 times daily for five days. Should I try this first before taking norethisterone and is it safe if you have hypertension?

Yes it is safe and it is fine to try first

Hi! My gp gave me norethisterone 5mg one tablet three times a day for ten days but my gyno had previously given me the same dosage for twenty days for the same problem. How many days should I take it for?

Ten days should stop the bleeding

I started norethisterone and have taken two doses so far. The bleeding is the same. How long will it take to slow down and stop?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Also should I continue taking metformin with it? I take it for pcos.

I cannot really tell you how long until the bleeding will stop Usually within a week. The metformin is a completely separate issue and unrelated. Whether or not you take it is your choice. IT can help with ovulation in women with pcos.

The bleeding stopped after three doses but it has started again. Does this happen?
