Origin and action.
Progynova is a synthetic hormone replacement for oestrogen. It is used to build up the lining of the uterus in preparation for embryo transfer during a thaw cycle for women who do not ovulate regularly.
Dosage and administration.
Progynova is usually taken daily starting on day five of the cycle but the nurses will confirm the starting day and dose at the start of the cycle. The medication is taken daily until the day of the pregnancy test and if the test confirms pregnancy the tablets are continued for another six weeks. If the test is negative, the tablets are stopped and a period will start within a few days.
Side effects are uncommon, but breast tenderness, gastric upset, nausea, headaches and an increase in bodyweight have been reported.
No special requirements.
