What is Progestogel?
Progestogel containing the active ingredient progesterone is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring female sex hormone. The gel is able to reach the tissues of the breast without being destroyed in the liver and does not exert any systemic effects on the body. The medication is used for pre-menstrual breast pain (mastodynia) if there are no pathological changes in the breast tissue.

How is Progestogel used?
Progestogel is usually applied topically once per day from the 10th day to the 25th day of the cycle or as directed by a doctor. The daily dose is typically 5g of gel, 2.5g on each breast to be applied after a bath. Once the gel is applied to the breast, gently massage it in until the medication is fully absorbed. Always use the dose applicator to correctly measure the dosage as the maximum recommended daily dose is 5g. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and timeframe as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy.

Adverse effects
Patients using Progestogel may encounter unwanted side effects such as:

  • Tenderness of the breast
  • Hot flushes
  • Metrorrhagia
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Oedema
  • Headaches
  • Nausea

Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.

Warnings
The gel should only be used by women and is not for male patients.

Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.

Progestogel is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.

The correct dosage and prescription commonly depend on the patient and the condition being treated. Do not adjust your dosage without the approval of your health care provider. This product is only for use as prescribed and instructed.
