Irregular period
didi0509 posted:
I have PCOS my doctor prescribe me medroxyprogesterone to help bring my period down. The first time i took it my period came down when to see my doctor after finishing my pills already had two weeks with my period very heavy, he prescribe them again to stop the heavy bleeding but a week later my period came back down and its been three weeks i have my period and it still very heavy with a lot of cramps. Is that normal? How for how long would i have my period for? Or what can i do to stop the bleeding?

No, not normal. A period shouldn't be longter than 7 days. There isn't anything you can do to stop the bleeding by yourself. You need to work with your doctor to figure out what's going on.
