How Dydron works
Dydron is a progestin (female hormone). It works by regulating the healthy growth and normal shedding of the womb lining. This action helps re-establish a regular menstrual cycle in conditions where a lack of progesterone causes menstrual problems, such as in premenstrual syndrome, painful or absent menstrual periods, and endometriosis. It also helps in the treatment of infertility by stimulating the womb lining to prepare for a pregnancy.
- Dydron is used for a wide range of menstrual disorders and to maintain a healthy womb lining for the ongoing pregnancy.
- It may also be used in women who have suffered repeated miscarriages.
- In case you have suffered repeated miscarriages, seek regular prenatal care. Avoid smoking, alcohol and limit your caffeine intake as these may lead to miscarriage.
- It may cause bleeding or spotting in between menstrual periods. Let your doctor know if this occurs frequently.
- Inform your doctor if you have a history of liver disease or depression.
