Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: tranexamic acid group Drug: Tranexamic Acid
Tranexamic acid (Kepron, Amoun, Egypt) was given slowly intravenously over 10 minutes just before the skin incision of elective cesarean section to group A. Tranexamic acid injection was prepared by diluting 1g (10 mL) tranexamic acid into 20 ml of 5% glucose.

No Intervention: non tranexamic (control) group

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. prevention of postpartum hemorrhage in high risk group [ Time Frame: intraoperative ]
    assessment of intraoperative blood loss
