Description

Progesterone falls under a class of medication called progestins (female hormones). Hormonal medicine is used in the treatment of infertility in women, menopausal issues, and maintaining pregnancy. It is also used to restore menstruation in women with secondary amenorrhea (absence of menstrual cycle). Progesterone (naturally micronized) is obtained from plants but its properties match those in humans. After undergoing a process called micronization, the original size of progesterone is reduced to enhance its dissolution and absorption in the body. It also makes progesterone (naturally micronized) more available in the body and reduces the chances of facing any side effects.

Progesterone regulates or initiates the menstrual cycle (menstruation) in females whose menopause has not arrived yet but who menstruate irregularly. It supports pregnancy by causing secretory changes in the uterine endometrium, stimulating breast growth, relaxing the uterus, preventing follicle maturation from release, and keeping the pregnancy going. Progesterone should be taken as prescribed by the doctor, at the same time each day. Progesterone induces many hormonal changes in the body that can cause side effects. Before taking progesterone in any form, ensure your doctor knows about your allergies, past medical records, and pregnancy updates. The capsules should be swallowed whole with water and should not be crushed, chewed, or broken.
