You would need an Rx: However, progestin medications can help, sometimes oral contraceptives can be used. See your doctor for best care plan for your needs.

Heavy Menses Treat: Treatment depends on diagnosis. Heavy bleeding should be evaluated by a gyn doctor. Possible causes include complications of pregnancy, fibroid tumors, endometrial polyps, infections and even bleeding disorders. Once the cause is determined, treatment can be recommended. Common treatments include birth control pills, a progesterone IUD, medroxyprogesterone acetate, tranexamic acid, or surgery.
