Trying to be thorough for those who are wondering about this drug- hope this isn’t TMI!! I am 35, have 2 kids, and have tried some of the hormonal BC pills, rings, etc… but they have all had adverse effects on me, so I wont use them anymore. Normally my periods are 7 full days of bleeding. Days 2-4 I usually wore heavy/overnight pads & super size tampon that I had to change almost every hour ... Show Full Comment

I have used Lysteda for 2 months now and I can tell you it works on really slowing down the heavy bleeding. I take 6 pills on the day of my heavy bleeding and in about 2 hours of taking the 1st 2 pills my bleeding has slowed considerably. I time the last 2 pills to just before bedtime to slow the flow overnight. I'm lucky that my bleeding is heavy for only the first 36 hours so I don't hav ... Show Full Comment

I too, have considered ablation because my periods were so heavy. The first period I took the pills, nothing seemed that different except my cycle seemed longer.. so I didn't think it was working. The next period I didn't take the medication at first and my period was MUCH lighter so I think it was from residual medication in my system. I started taking the pills on the 3rd day and will ...

This is amazing... My doctor has really been trying to get me to get an ablation or hyst. I just don't want a procedure since my husband had a vas 1 yr ago. This worked super fast and works really well for my heavy periods. Plus, I only take it 2-3 days out of the month. I got a coupon from my doc too which makes it $30/mth w/ my insurance. Glad I didn't cave.

This is my second month on Lysteda and it has made my previously out-of-control periods much more manageable. I actually can sleep through the night without having to get up 2-3 times to change my tampon. Only down side is cost (its not in my insurance plan) and having to remember to take it 3 times a day (its easy to forget the midday dose). I am very pleased with the results and i wish this dr ...
