FAQs

Q. Can you take Endogest every day?

Yes, Endogest can be taken every day. It is usually prescribed to be taken once daily in the evening or at bedtime. The usual duration of prescription may vary from 10-12 days a month to 25 days a month. However, the number of days for which you will need to take this medicine in each cycle will be suggested by your doctor depending upon your health condition.

Q. Does Endogest cause weight gain?

Yes, taking Endogest may cause weight gain. The weight gain may be due to water retention and may not be a serious sign. However, contact your doctor in case your weight gain is worrying you. The risk of weight gain is generally less if Endogest is taken with estrogen as a combined pill. But, do not start any hormonal therapy without consulting your doctor.

Q. What is Endogest?

Endogest is a type of progesterone hormone which is extracted from plants, but its property matches with the human progesterone. This medicine undergoes a process called micronization where the size of the natural progesterone is reduced. The small size of the progesterone particles enhances its dissolution and absorption. This provides better availability of Endogest in the body and decreases its side effects.

Q. Is Endogest safe?

Yes, Endogest is safer as compared to the normal synthetic progesterone. Its smaller size helps the body absorb it easily and reduces the side effects like fluid retention, reduction of HDL cholesterol levels, headaches and mood disturbance.

Q. What is Endogest used to treat?

Endogest is used to treat various disorders. It is given to women with secondary amenorrhea (no menstruation for 3 months in women who have had their menses before). It is used to support pregnancy, prevent premature labor, and treat bleeding disorders that may occur before menopause. It may be used as a part of fertility treatment and may be given as hormone replacement therapy after menopause. It is also given to relieve symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and painful bleeding like in dysfunctional uterine bleeding.

Q. How is progesterone beneficial for fertility and pregnancy?

Progesterone is a very crucial hormone in fertility. It is the hormone secreted by the ovaries that helps prepare the uterus for pregnancy and maintain it. Endogest (natural micronized form of progesterone) is given as a medicine in cases of infertility to support the uterus in preparing itself for the pregnancy and to prevent the abortions in some cases. It is also used to prevent premature labor.
