Safety Of Drugs That Contain The Hormone Progesterone?
My doctor wants to ask, is the drug safe for consumption of microgynon for those aged 22 years, how about the dose? please info
Microgynon is a drug containing levonorgestrel (similar to the hormone progesterone in the body) and ethinylestradiol (like estrogen in the body). This drug is often used as hormonal contraception or as a therapy for menstrual disorders and cases of endometriosis.
Microgynon should not be used by pregnant women, breastfeeding women, women with breast cancer, history of blood vessel abnormalities, cardiac arrest, history of abnormal vaginal bleeding that has not been diagnosed by a doctor, history of liver disease. Side effects that arise from the use of microgynon can include headaches, nausea, vomiting, breast pain, weight gain, depression, reduced menstrual volume. This medicine is used based on doctor's instructions. Before using the drug, a test pack must be taken to exclude the possibility of pregnancy. As a contraceptive, the drug is taken once a day at the same hour. It is easiest to start taking hormone pills (which amount to 21 pieces) on the first day of menstruation, continue until after 21 such pills continue with 7 placebo pills. Then continue with the next package. Further consultation regarding the use of this drug you should do with an obstetrician.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
