You can stop this by either taking Norethisterone 5mg three times daily or if you dont want hormonal medication, your GP can instead issue tranexamic acid in combination with mefenamic acid tablets which help to clot the blood and stop the bleeding

I'll recommend blood tests and scan to look for underlying causes such as fibroids
