How to stop bleeding

Post by GoFollies » Tue Dec 22, 2015 6:36 am

Dear Dr Wisot

I am needing to delay my period for a few more days to start my cycle but have started light bleeding.

I have been on a progesterone pessary - 500mg per day.

Can I just take an extra pessary per day to stop the bleeding?

I've been avoiding Progestins (Provera). Or would Provera be the only thing that could stop the bleeding now?

Once the bleeding starts, it's difficult to stop. In any case delaying the period with progesterone may not delay the start of the next cycle anyway.
