Hi,

What was the reason for using this meds? Was it to induce withdrawal bleeding?

The reason is to stop bleeding I have been on my period seance feb 28 and since Tuesday has been very heavy

Did you start this meds in the middle of your cycle? When is your period due? Did you receive the instruction when to stop this meds?

Customer reply replied 28 days ago
all the side effects are headaches and just feel very tired and I have overy that hurts a lot

Thanks for the information.

I think you received this meds to regulate your irregular uterine bleeding due to hormonal imbalance. Usually 5 to 10 mg is given for 5-10 days, and withdrawal bleeding would occur 3-7 days after stopping this meds. This will help you regulate your cycle. You can continue to take it, but if you are bleeding excessively, you can stop it and most likely withdrawal bleeding would start shortly. You can also discuss it with your PCP if he agrees to stop this meds in your case.
