EXTREMELY heavy periods due to a 7cm fibroids. I am scheduled for a hysterectomy in 3 months. Asked my doc if there were any meds to help with the heavy bleeding and I got this miracle pill. I usually go through 1 super size super pack the first 3 days. Day 4 and I've barely gone through 20 pads.

I only used 5 supers on days 2/3 as op ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was prescribed this medication for severely heavy and long periods that put me into a state of anemia. This drug simply postponed my period and when it came, was heavier than ever causing even worse anemia. My skin broke out in a rash all over my body and my eyes have been twitching for 2 weeks, which I've never had before. Glad that it works for some people; I had high hopes but will not ta ...
