What stops bleeding fast?

I am a 28 year old male. I want to know what stops wound bleeding fast?

Direct and sustained pressure over the site of bleeding for at least 5 minutes or longer counted by the watch-not your estimate. If bleeding involves a large artery or vein a tourniquet may be necessary.
Put pressure on wound until it stops. Then a pressure drsg. Or band

Hope all is well. I would suggest to put lots of pressure and use Arnica (it is an herb which is very effective).
