Prohale 100mg Capsule


Overview

Introduction

Prohale 100mg Capsule is used to restore menstrual cycles in women whose periods have stopped. It is a natural female hormone important for regulating ovulation (when you release eggs) and menstruation. It is used in the treatment of infertility to help you get pregnant.

Prohale 100mg Capsule should be taken with food or as advised by the doctor. Do not use more or less than you have been advised and do not use it for longer than recommended. You may be asked to continue taking this medicine for a period after it is confirmed that you are pregnant.

The most common side effects include feeling fatigue, sleepiness, headache, and stomach cramps, pain, or swelling in your abdomen. You may also feel bloated, less interested in sex and get pain or discharge in your vagina. If any of the side effects bother you or do not go away with time, consult with your doctor. Very occasionally people get a severe allergic reaction which needs urgent medical attention. Using this medicine may increase your risk of blood clots or breast cancer.

It may not suit everybody, and you should tell your doctor if you have, or have had, breast cancer, unusual bleeding in the vagina or liver disease. You may be monitored more carefully if you have liver, kidney or heart problems or have diabetes or asthma. Let your doctor know your medical history to be safe. Check with your doctor about all other medicines which may affect, or be affected by, this medicine. You will probably have several tests both before and during treatment to check your womb. This medicine can alter your thinking or reactions and you may feel very tired so be careful if you drive or need to be alert. In general, alcohol is not recommended while taking this medicine.

FAQs

Q. Can you take Prohale every day?

Yes, Prohale 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 Prohale cause weight gain?

Yes, taking Prohale 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 Prohale is taken with estrogen as a combined pill. But, do not start any hormonal therapy without consulting your doctor.

Q. What is Prohale?

Prohale 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 Prohale in the body and decreases its side effects.

Q. Is Prohale safe?

Yes, Prohale 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 Prohale used to treat?

Prohale 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. Prohale (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.
