Any one tried tranexamic acid

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm going to see my doctor on Tuesday to discuss my heavy blood loss when on my period. It's horrendous, bright red, flooding and leaves me feeling etxremely fatigued for days after. 

My periods stopped for 3 month in the summer but since starting hrt patches in September they started again.

I have small fibroids. I've read about tranexamic acid and wondered if anyone has tried it, was it successful, any side effects?

Thanks for any info

    I feel your pain. I used to have exactly the same before I got my fibroid removed. They do work but I think you can only take them for 3 or 4 days. I didn't have any side effects at all.

    tranexamic acid is very good to reduce the flow and yes it can be taken only for 3-5 days. however in my opnion it is just a cure to the symptom rather than the cause. If the underlying cause of heavy bleeding is say fibroid, then it needs to be treated accordingly.
