Customer Question
Customer: My name is *****...
Customer: My name is ***** ***** and its about my period. I am currently on birth control and I have been having a heavy period but I seem to be bleeding through my tampons very quickly, like ever hour and am a little concerned because it has never been this heavy
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Well I have PCOS and I have been on the pill for about a month now because I am sexually active with my boyfriend. I have been having the worst back cramps and like I said very heavy bleeding, more so than in the past. I am changing my tampon ever half an hour to an hour
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to OB GYN Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Ok
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello,

a possibility to reduce the intensity of bleeding in this case is the use of transexamic acid which your OB/GYN can prescribe. It only has to be used during the time of bleeding and should resolve your problem.

Best regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele

I feel better already! 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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
