Hello, Nisa Cathrine, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tranexamic acid is a drug that is often prescribed to stop bleeding. This drug stops bleeding by preventing blood clots from bursting. This drug must be prescribed by a doctor, and is a drug that can be absorbed in breast milk (although the amount absorbed in breast milk is only a little) so that the recommendation is not to prescribe tranexamic acid in nursing mothers. You should consult again with the doctor who is directly examining you, remembering the doctor will provide therapy if the benefits outweigh the risks. You can read more complete information about tranexamic acid in the HealthReplies.com article entitled "tranexamic acid".
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
