Progesterone Overview

I am 50, in good health, no signs of meposause. I live in London so when I get to see my GP she said that pill is not listed in the UK, but when I google it, it comes up so I am a bit confused. Is it under another name in the UK? Do you know the name? ## The actual ingredient is Nomegestrol, it's a hormonal supplement, so what you need to ask your doctor to look for is something that contains the same ingredient.

After consulting a doctor I was advised to take ovacare tablets for 6 months. Does this tablet help me to conceive a baby? ## Hello, Shakira! How are you? This is just a nutritional supplement, so the only way it will help is if your issues have been caused by a lack in one of the vital nutrients it contains, as reported by the NIH. I'm not sure if the doctor told you, but the amount of blood actually doesn't matter, it is whether or not you are ovulating each month and how much progesterone you are producing. Have you considered seeing a specialist? You really need to discover what specifically caused the miscarriages and how t...
