Q. What is Progynova and what is it used for?

Progynova contains Estradiol, which is an estrogen hormone. It helps in treating estrogen deficiency symptoms like hot flushes (red and warm face) and vaginal dryness in women. It is also used to prevent osteoporosis (thinning and weakening of bones) in postmenopausal women, who are at high risk of fractures and have limited treatment choice.

Q. When and how to take Progynova?

Take Progynova as per your doctor's advice. However, you must try to take Progynova at the same time of each day, to ensure the consistent levels of medicine in your body.

Q. What if I miss a dose of Progynova?

If you miss a dose, you should take it as soon as possible. If the dose was missed by more than 12 hours, you should not take the missed dose and simply continue the usual dosing schedule.

Q. What are the most common side effects which I may experience while taking Progynova?

The common side effects associated with Progynova are lower abdominal pain, periods pain, breast tenderness, endometrial hyperplasia (thickening of uterus lining) and vaginal discharge. Most of these symptoms are temporary. However, if these persist, check with your doctor as soon as possible.

Q. What can I take for estrogen deficiency?

For estrogen deficiency, treatment is based on the underlying cause. Your doctor may choose from a variety of medications depending upon your age and clinical conditions. The medications will also depend upon whether you are estrogen deficient or have high progesterone levels.
