What is Gestone?
Gestone containing the active ingredient progesterone is a man made version of the naturally occurring female sex hormone which is essential for the functioning of the female reproductive system. It is generally used to help early pregnancies to continue by women who have a history of unexplained miscarriages. The medication may also help a fertilized egg implant into the womb lining in women trying to get pregnant via in vitro fertilization (IVF). The ampoules also have the ability to regulate bleeding disorders of the uterus.

How is Gestone used?
Gestone is usually injected twice per week or as directed by a doctor. The ampoules are generally injected into a muscle as instructed by the doctor. Change the location of the injection each time to avoid problem areas in the muscle. Contact a doctor for the correct use, which days to use it, dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy. The maximum frequency of injections should not exceed once per day.
