Q. What is I Gest?
I Gest 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 I Gest in the body and decreases its side effects.
Q. Is I Gest safe?
Yes, I Gest 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 I Gest used to treat?
I Gest 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?
