Hi superstars, you’ve been so helpful over the past 6 months, and so I’ve come for some advice again.
I’ve been on Tranexamic Acid in the past for heavy bleeding around the time I had a post-partum hemmorhage from retained placenta. I wasn’t told that this wasn’t okay and was told I could take it four days in a row.
A couple of months ago I spoke to another doctor who stated I could only take TA when I had a period as it apparently wouldn’t work on the type of bleeding I have. (what?)
My backstory is I’ve been bleeding continuously (with only a weeks break and a day here and there) for 6 months. I had a laparoscopy (which found nothing but ovary adhesions) on the 7th Feb. Bleeding has not stopped. Said bleeding is now getting heavy again especially over the last two days. I realise this is not a period but would I be able to take Tranexamic Acid to lessen the bleed if it got too heavy? It’s worked before..
I’m under a gynaecologist and am seeing him in about a week and a half, but I’m stuck for ideas as I’m heavily anaemic atm and just want a break. Have any of you taken TA for unexplained bleeding despite the leaflet advising against it?
(PS: I’ve had a biopsy of my womb: normal, and a colposcopy: normal, and I haven’t any infections right now.)
