Progesterone is also a crucial metabolic intermediate in the production of other endogenous steroids, including the sex hormones and the corticosteroids, and plays an important role in brain function as a neurosteroid.[12] ...

Dr advised my wife to take this tablet "Dubagest SR 300" after detecting the pregnancy. In its brochure its clearly mentioned that it can be continued for 12 weeks after pregnancy. Now 12 weeks are over but still this tab is prescribed by Dr to continue for more four weeks . Pls advise whether this is ok. Secondly in Contraindication "Dont" of its brochure its mentioned that Progenterone "This tablet" should not be used by women in case of known or suspected pregnancy. What does this mean? Is it that when a woman gets pregnant then it should not be used. Wherein our Dr has already prescribed this tab after getting pregnant. ## Dubagest contained Progesterone, which is a hormone that's vital to a woman's health, as well as her ability to get pregnant and c...

how do oralcon contraceptive pills work?
44 Replies RSS
I have started using oralcon contraceptive pill, I wanna know how they work ## HI, Tshepo! How are you? Oralcon is a hormonal based contraceptive, so they work by adding certain amounts of synthetic estrogen and progesterone to your body to prevent ovulation from occurring each month. That's why you have to take one each day, for 3 weeks until your menstruation week, if you don't, then the drop in hormones may allow ovulation to happen which makes it possible for you to get pregnant. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Do I drink this pills during my menstruation week ## Hi, i would like to know how long it takes for the Oralcon birthcontrol pill to be out of my system / body. ## does oralcon cause abnominal pains? am using oralcon for about 3mnths nw nd i alwyz hv pains ...

Susten 100 Side Effects
5 Replies RSS
Susten use and side effects ## what is the side effect of susten 100 in pergnency ## Hi, Ladies! Susten contains Progsterone, which is a hormone that is vital to the overall health and well being of the female body. A lack of it can cause issues, such as PMS, PND, menstrual cramps, very heavy, prolonged menstrual flow, infertility and miscarriage. It really has no side effects of its own, other than causing a little drowsiness if the dose is too high….however, it does tend to wake up the estrogen receptors and when estrogen becomes the dominant hormone, it can make you pretty miserable. You may experience headaches, nausea, dizziness, heart palpitations, weight gain, fluid retention and more. But as to taking it in pregnancy, normally your body produces very large amounts of it wh...

Lutenyl pill availability in the UK
3 Replies RSS
Hi, I have been advised to take Lutenyl by a French Doctor for both contraception and balancing my hormones (too much estrogens versus progesterone - I have a fibroid 10x11 cm so hopefully with Lutenyl it will stop growing). 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. Learn more Nomegestrol details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Hi, am 36 old and had my first child last two years with cesarean an...

Ovacare tablet can help me to get pregnant
7 Replies RSS
I am 28 years old and got married last year. I had two miscarriages. After my first miscarriage I had my period regularly but a less amount of bleeding. 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...
