How To Stop A Prolonged Period

How To Stop A Prolonged Period

Hi I was recently prescribed Visanne by my Dr. The pain almost immediately disappeared, but I started my period a month into taking it and now it's been 10 days straight on my period which is showing no signs of stopping. Any ideas on how to make it stop as it's creating havoc in my day to day life

Glad you pain is under control. Medications only help with the symptoms. The Endo is still growing. There is no cure for it but excision is the gold standard. Endo makes its own estrogen.

Hello. Mine is a little different. When I stop Visanne I bleed heavily and longer. My doctor prescribed tranexamic acid 1×3 5days 500g. They helped me a lot. And I was taking them alongside Visanne. I hope this helps.
