Hi Neska,

Not sure I know what CC stands for, but with regards long period -- I was going to suggest you might have polycystic ovarian cyst, but since your blood work came back okay I am not sure what to say. Maybe ask for another test, specifically looking for signs of PCOS?

I had long/heavy periods -- sometimes lasting as long as 5weeks -- my family would call me the woman with the issue of blood in jest but it can be very uncomfortable. I later went on the pill which controlled it. I have to add that I could also go as long as 16months with no period.

I am not sure if this is any help but further test is highly recommended.


I had to take mefenamic acid tablets to stop my period as also went on for about 14 days after stopping breastfeeding for about 15 months. My cycle is back to normal now. Talk to your doctor.


Thank you for your replies. I was diagnosed with PCOS 3years ago and had cysts removed. Then i got pregnant last year and had my daughter 4months ago. Gp prescribed me tranexamic acid but it doesnt work.hope it will finish before Christmas cos its driving me crazy :( x
