The Function Of The Drug Dexamethasone During The Pregnancy Program?
Hello … I want to ask. I was given a profile and dexamethasone for promil this time. I want to ask, what is the function of Dexa here? Is it related to profile?
Hello, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Profile is a trademark of a drug whose contents contain clomiphene citrate. This drug is often used in women who will undergo a pregnant program. This drug will cause the pituitary gland and hypothalamus in the brain to release hormones that stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs. Clomiphene is consumed when women experience menstruation, which is the first time on the third, fourth or fifth day of menstruation. It is expected that ovulation will occur more optimally. If ovulation has not occurred, then the doctor will increase the dose or maybe replace it with other drugs.
Dexamethasone is basically a drug to treat inflammation, allergic and autoimmune reactions. However, the addition of dexamethasone to clomiphene citrate will increase its effectiveness in stimulating ovulation. In research that has been done, the addition of dexamethasone to clomiphene citrate therapy can increase ovulation in PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) patients and in patients with clomiphene citrate resistant.
Hopefully the pregnancy program that you carry out runs smoothly. I suggest that you still follow the instructions to take the medicine that has been given by your obstetrician and control it again at the time that was done. But right now the world is being horrified by the Pandemic COVID-19, so re-control can be carried out after the corona outbreak has improved. If you do not experience an emergency, then the control can be delayed in advance to prevent transmission of COVID-19.
I hope this helps
