    Iâ??m 46 and Iâ??ve had heavy periods since they started at age 12 . Over the years they got normal but in my 40â??s they got heavy again, so heavy that I had to get an iron transfusion.

    Take days 1-20 each month. Bleeding for entire period is less than in one day prior to taking this med. No side affects at all.

    I have been taking this medication for almost a month now. I started my period the day after I started taking it and it lasted for 11 days. I was off of my period for 4 days and started back again. I started this medicine to help stop the heavy extremely long periods but it has just gotten worse. This dizziness is unbearable !!

The third week I have had the worst cramping and bleeding of my life! I can't move, roll over in bed or even sit still to get the cramping to stop. The pain wakes me from sleep it is so severe! I'd rather not be on it and deal with the monthly b ... Show Full Comment
