Introduction

Progynon 10mg Injection is a female sex hormone (estrogen). This is a type of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that is used to treat symptoms associated with menopause (hot flushes, vaginal dryness, and itching), estrogen deficiency, and thinning of bones (osteoporosis).

In some cases, Progynon 10mg Injection is also used to treat breast cancer and prostate cancer along with other anticancer medicines. The medicine is strictly to be administered by a healthcare professional. The dose and duration will be decided by your doctor so that you get the right amount to control your symptoms. If you have missed a dose, get it as soon as you remember it. Do not skip any dose and finish the full course of treatment. The treatment should not be stopped abruptly without consulting your doctor as this may affect the potency of this medicine.

The most common side effects of this HRT are headaches, breast pain, irregular vaginal bleeding or spotting, abdominal cramps or bloating, nausea, vomiting, and hair loss. Some of the warning signs and symptoms that need immediate medical attention are breast lumps, unusual vaginal bleeding, dizziness and faintness, severe headaches, chest pain, shortness of breath, pains in your legs, etc.

Before taking this medicine, it is important to tell your doctor if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines for the same disease or other diseases. Before you initiate with this HRT, you must consult the doctor if you have a history of unexplained vaginal bleeding or if you have ever had a blood clot in your legs or your lungs. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should tell your doctor before taking this medicine. Your doctor may suggest you some diagnostic or laboratory tests to know the effects and side effects of this medicine on your body.

Uses of Progynon Injection

Benefits of Progynon Injection

In Hormone replacement therapy

Hormone placement therapy (HRT) is a treatment to relieve symptoms of menopause such as hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, and reduced sex drive. Since menopause can last for several years, this treatment can make a big improvement to your daily life and mood. Estrogen is one of two important hormones (the other is progesterone) used in this treatment. You should use this medicine as it is prescribed, and for as long as it is prescribed by your doctor.

In Treatment of Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is a common type of cancer in males, but it is highly treatable in the early stages. It starts in the prostate gland, which is located between the penis and the bladder. Progynon 10mg Injection helps treat prostate cancer by decreasing or stopping the growth of cancer cells. This further gives relief from the symptoms of prostate cancer such as difficulty in passing urine. Take Progynon 10mg Injection as prescribed by your doctor.

In Treatment of Breast cancer

Progynon 10mg Injection relieves the symptoms of breast cancer such as breast lumps, bloody discharge from nipple or changes in the shape or texture of the breast. It works by altering the production of those hormones in the body that are essential for the growth and spread of breast cancer.
