No, tranexamic acid does not contain any hormones.

Tranexamic acid is a man-made form of an amino acid (protein) called lysine. Tranexamic acid prevents enzymes in the body from breaking down blood clots.
The Cyklokapron and Lysteda brands of tranexamic acid are used for different medical conditions.

Cyklokapron is used to prevent bleeding in people with hemophilia who need to have a tooth pulled. This medication is usually given just before the dental procedure, and daily for up to 8 days afterward.

Lysteda is used to treat heavy menstrual bleeding. This medication will not treat premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
