Expert Advice

  • Utreva Vaginal gel 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, Utreva Vaginal gel 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 Utreva Vaginal gel.
  • 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.
     
  • It should be taken with food.
  • It may cause sleepiness or drowsiness. If this happens to you, do not drive or use machinery.

Hi Bhagyashree. You need to lose weight so that your hormones get under control. Excessive fat also increases testesterone and decreases the female hormones, hence the irregular periods
