13yr old, heavy mensturation, Duphaston?? is it right?
anuramesh posted:
My daughter had her regular cycle from 18/11/13 to 21/11/13. Last Wednesday she started having discharge again. Since Thursday evening it became really heavy. Her bed and clothes were soiled in the morning. Saturday I took her to OB/GYN; who along with Iron tablets also prescribed Duphaston 3times a day for 15days and twice a day for 15 more days. Also Dycinone (prevents blood clot) and Mafepain (for pain, cramps). Except for complete blood examination (result awaited)no other tests were done.

Is it safe for her to take all these meds? She started menstruating only in September this month was her third cycle. Please help.

Why would you think that random people on a website would know better than a fully qualified doctor? If you do not trust your OB/GYN then you need to change and find one you do trust...

In the beginning girls do get irregular and heavy menstruation. It gets normal once it starts regularly.
