Utrogestan 100mg Capsules

Description

Utrogestan contains a hormone called progesterone and should be taken together with another medicine called oestrogen. The combination of Utrogestan and oestrogen belongs to a group of medicines called hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

As you get near to the menopause, the amount of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone in your body declines. HRT such as Utrogestan replaces these hormones and reduces the symptoms of the menopause.

Why Utrogestan is taken with oestrogen - If your HRT contains only oestrogen the lining of the womb could build up causing many health problems. Taking Utrogestan together with oestrogen sheds the womb lining, thus preventing these problems occurring. 

Directions

The recommended dose is two tablets at bedtime, for twelve days in the last half of each therapeutic cycle (beginning on Day 15 of the cycle and ending on Day 26).

Ingredients

Each capsule contains 100mg progesterone.
The other ingredients in the capsule shell are gelatin, glycerol, titanium dioxide and purified water.

Side effects

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
Common side effects may include:
• Bloating of the stomach
• Depression
• Breast tenderness
• Hot flashes
• Vaginal discharge
• Joint pain
• Urinary problems

Warnings

You may have some bleeding at the end of each month, rather like a period. If you experience any side effects, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
