What is Susten (Progesterone) used for?
Susten Gel (Progesterone) is prescribed to treat women with infertility by preparing the lining of the uterus for egg implantation. It operates by being absorbed into the bloodstream through the womb and strengthening the lining of the womb to make implantation easier. This process continues through the development of the placenta to make sure the pregnancy is able to proceed as normal. Your doctor may also recommend the use of this medication for other purposes such as preventing overgrowth of vaginal tissues or endometriosis.
How should I use Susten (Progesterone)?
Susten Gel (Progesterone) should always be used strictly according to your doctor`s instructions to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. One daily application of the prescribed dosage is normally recommended, but your individual directions will depend on your age, weight, current health, and the severity of your symptoms. Thoroughly clean the applicator before each use to remove any bacteria or dirt. Collect the prescribed amount of medication into the applicator, insert it into the vagina, and dispense the medication according to the included instructions. Wash your hands using soap and warm water after each use to prevent the cream from contacting other areas not being treated or other mucous membranes. It is also necessary to wash the applicator to prevent any contamination. Ask your pharmacist or doctor any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct usage.
