hello would you like to chat on this?
I am afraid Premarin will not stop your period since it has already started
estrogen pills can be given to delay periods, as for example when a person is going on a vacation
but these need to be started about three days before the day of the period
then can be continued till the end of the vacation
but once the period starts, the uternine lining has already begun shedding, and this cannot be stopped till the process is complete
hope this gives you an idea of what to do

ok...i was confused about the use of it...i experienced a 28 day period about a year ago and was given a prescription of premarin and i think another pill?
any further questions?
thats right, premarin is given to stop prolonged bleeding
it is prescribed in case of abnormal and excessive bleeding
it will help to prevent that
but it will not shorten the normal period
thank you i don't think my periods are very normal anymore..at 51...never know when or if it is coming...
sometimes bleeding can persist even after the uterine lining shedding has been completed and premarin helps in that
but not to stop the shedding
you are going through the perimenopausal period
this abnormality of periods is normal and expected during this period
you can go for a blood test which will confirm whether you are premenopausal
there is also an OTC test for this
but not really necessary unless you are having uncomfortable symptoms
what is it called
if you are having uncomfortable symptoms you can discuss with your gynae about HRT
its called Homecheck
in fact there are many brands
just ask for the test at your chemist
glad to help
good night then
