Has anybody tried the mini pill for heavy clotty prolonged periods in perimenopause? I've read that they can help reduce bleeding but cause irregularity.

      The mini pill is a progesterone only pill which would need to be prescribed by a GP so you would just pay a prescription charge if in the UK. I am not presently on it but have heard that it can help reduce bleeding & it is the pill most suitable for people over 35.

      Thank you. I think I will discuss giving them a try with my GP. I have odd periods now I'm in my 40's really heavy & clotty first few days, then they settle down for a couple of days before the bright red blood & clotting starts again out of nowhere. I'm on tranexmic acid but can only take these the first few days.
