Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Having periods more than once in a month can sometimes happen due to stress or other factors. But if it happens repeatedly, you may have to get yourself checked by a gynecologist.

Meanwhile, if you are having heavy bleeding, you can take tablet Tranexamic acid 500 mg twice daily till the bleeding stops.
