Expert Advice

  • Prostagen 200 mg Tablet is a vaginal gel that helps increase your chances of getting pregnant by replacing low levels of progesterone during luteal phase. It prepares the lining of your uterus to receive and nourish a fertilized egg. 
  • If you become pregnant, Prostagen 200 mg Tablet can be used for another 10 to 12 weeks until your progesterone levels are high enough.
  • It also helps regulate menstrual cycle in women who do not have a regular period due to a decrease in the hormone progesterone. 
  • It exposes your body to less hormone compared to progesterone pills or injections thereby preventing various gastric side effects.
  • Do not use tampons or other vaginal products for at least 6 hours before and 6 hours after using Prostagen 200 mg Tablet.
  • Use each applicator only once to insert the gel into your vagina and then throw it away. 
  • You may get a brownish or white discharge during this time that may cause irritation, pain or swelling of the vagina. It is not unusual, but talk to your doctor if it bothers you.
