    Collected my prescription today from my last ACU appt, i've got a few months supply so have got a few boxes (and she gave me extra because i have to pay :) )

    The pharmacist pulled me to one side and explained what each did, 1 for pain, and 1 to reduce bleeding, so im chuffed that my 12 month of complaining to Dr's etc has paid off and im now awaiting the witch so i can start them and book my HyCosy....

    Im on.....Mefenamic Acid and Tranexamic Acid. Anyone any experience of them?

    Hi Chaz, I've been on Mefenamic acid for years - used to suffer from painful periods but this really helps. Also it makes my period much less heavy. I would suggest trying to take it a day or 2 before your period so it takes effect before your period kicks in - if you can, this will really help. I know its difficult if your cycles are irregular but take one if you feel af might be on her way. It won't hurt and it will mean its in your system before the pain kicks in. Good latl!
