Hello, already bleeding for two months hurts the bottom of the abdomen. It is impossible for a gynecologist to get what you would advise you to do.
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: I've been getting the pain for 2 months know
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

Naproxen 220 mg one tablet 3 times a day with food the next three days will be helpful. This will act on the hormone-like substance prostaglandin to decrease your bleeding by 30 to 50%.

This duration and amount of bleeding can cause anemia and it is high time that it is investigated by an ultrasound and blood investigations.

You would be prescribed cyklokapron or Tranexamic Acid/Ethamsylate. You may have to be put on the hormones. Following are the options;

1) Progestins

2) Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist; expensive

3) Danazol

4) Oral contraceptive pills.

Your GP can write these medications to you.

The following can be the causes of your prolonged bleeding:

1) Fibroids and polyps of the uterus

2) Endometrial hyperplasia; due to high estrogen.

3) Bleeding disorders.

4) Hyperinsulinemia

5) Both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism

6) High prolactin

7) Coagulation disorders.

8) Infections.

Wishing you a speedy resolution and all the very best in life.

Where could I get the medicine from? How do I know which one to get?

Naproxen is available without the prescription.

You may take a multivitamin and iron supplements also, that also is over the counter.

Oral contraceptives or other medications can be written by your GP as these are by the prescription.
