INTRODUCTION

MIPROGEN 100 MG contains Progesterone which belongs to the group of medicines called progestins. It is used to treat pre-menstrual syndrome and post-natal depression (depression after childbirth) in female patients. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a combination of physical, emotional and psychological disturbances that occur during 7 to 10 days before their monthly period (after ovulation) and typically ends with the onset of menstrual flow. This medicine also prevents preterm delivery and miscarriage during the early stages of pregnancy.

Progesterone is a naturally produced female sex hormone that works by adjusting the hormonal balance within the body and provides relief from PMS and post-natal depression. Wash your hands thoroughly before and after inserting the pessary. Depending upon the condition, it can be either inserted into the vagina or the rectum (back passage). Place the pessary between the vagina or rectum and gently push it upwards.

The most common side effects of this medicine are drowsiness, stomach pain and breast pain. Contact your doctor if these symptom bothers you. Before using this medicine, inform your doctor if you have or ever had unexplained vaginal bleeding or previous miscarriage. Your doctor will suggest you a suitable alternative therapy. If you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant, consult your doctor before using this medicine, because the risks of congenital anomalies, from exposure to exogenous progesterone during pregnancy have not been fully established. This medicine is not recommended for use in lactating mothers and in children or adolescents. Consult your doctor before taking.
