So, work has said even though I have heavy periods (I also get horrible pains, another post) - changing a tampon and a pad (thickest ones) every hour for a few days, and bringing in extra change of trousers, I still need to be in work, I can't be off. Problem is gravity takes effect when I stand up, and my work is sitting so that itself doesn't help. When at home I know I can get to the toilet in time.
I was given tranexamic acid once for a heavy bleed that was the same but for 7 days. Is there anything I can get or ask gp for that will lighten it, and make work more manageable?
