It could take you months for the bleeding to stop....try not to be too impatient and just let the meds do the work.
Really....it took a long while for my bleeding to stop.
I hadn't bled for over 14 years during flares...but it took well over 3 years to have no blood with flares. The reason was that I eventually learned to treat flares earlier and earlier....before the tissues became friable/fragile.
If you're having your period soon..that will also cause your bleeding to continue longer. Hormonal fluctuations..from my perspective...will influence UC bigtime.
I would suggest you use the 5ASA nightly and supplement with the steroid in the morning...see how that does. Really...really give the 5ASA a fair chance.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
