Hello Silent Mother.
Thank you for the question.
Uterogestants contain the artificial hormone progesterone. The hormone progesterone is also known as the pregnancy hormone, which means that the presence of this hormone is important for pregnancy. This drug is often used as a womb booster, menstrual problems, premenstrual disorders, bleeding, and menopause. Basically this hormone has been produced naturally and plays a role in the menstrual process and pregnancy.
In general, the functions of the artificial progesterone hormone include:
hormonal contraceptive methods
used in the IVF process
maintain skin elasticity and bone strength
used to treat the difficult problem of having children
used in women who experience menstrual disorders or delayed menstruation
keep the pregnancy in order to avoid miscarriage
bleeding through the vagina
Use of this drug is not recommended in women with conditions:
have a history of breast cancer or are experiencing breast cancer
there is a malignant tumor due to estrogen
liver disease or liver disorders
allergic to one of the ingredients of the drug
bleeding in the birth canal of unknown cause
It is hoped that the administration of this drug can make the condition of the pregnancy in good condition, so that it can prevent miscarriage in early pregnancy. Even though there is no previous history of miscarriage, this drug can still be said to be safe for use by pregnant women. Possible side effects:
drowsiness 1-3 hours after taking the drug
menstrual disorders for those who are not pregnant
As for that which must be considered are:
this drug is not used in the second and third trimesters
this medicine should be taken at the same time as food and at night
The use of this drug must be under the supervision of a doctor, for that in stopping or continuing this drug, the mother is expected to consult first with the mother's obstetrician.
That's my explanation, hopefully it can answer the question.
