irregular i am experiecing after every 15 days and i am not taking any medication
Doctor: Medicaldoctor, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Okay so you should use tranexamic acid tablets for this.Tranexamic acid reduces menstrual blood loss (MBL) by 26%–60%

It is most effective medicine to decrease blood loss and has a very low side effect profile.

1,300 mg (two 650 mg tablets) orally three times a day for a maximum of 5 days during monthly menstruation.
This will reduce your menstrual flow significantly.

I hope this answers your question.

Please do let me know if you have any queries

Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
