What is Cyclogest?

Cyclogest is a progesterone hormone that is available as a vaginal suppository to treat amenorrhea and perimenopausal symptoms, and for the prevention of endometrial hyperplasia and to delay or prevent preterm labor, especially for those women that have experienced premature labor with other pregnancies. Progesterone is produced naturally in your adrenal glands, ovaries, and the placenta when you become pregnant.

Cyclogest Helps to Increase Progesterone Levels

Amenorrhea simply means the absence of your monthly period for at least three cycles in a row, or a girl aged 15 that has not menstruated yet. Perimenopause is a woman’s transition into menopause and the start of bothersome symptoms including hot flashes, erratic menstrual cycles, fatigue, and a reduced sex drive. Endometrial hyperplasia can be a problem with not ovulating so your body does not produce progesterone and therefore the uterine lining cannot shed. This lining, also called the endometrium, may continue to grow as a response to unopposed estrogen production.

One reason for preterm labor could be that your cervix is considered short, also called incompetent cervix or cervical insufficiency. This can lead to your cervix stretching and becoming thinner and could start to dilate so the baby can pass easily through the birth canal. If this happens between 16 and 24 weeks gestation, your baby may be born prematurely or miscarried. Cyclogest can be inserted vaginally as recommended by your doctor to prepare the endometrium and prevent the baby from entering the world too soon.

Before You Buy Cyclogest

Your doctor should know your health history of other medical conditions or allergies you have, as well as any Rx or OTC medications you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements. This can help your doctor determine if Cyclogest is safe for you to use. For use during perimenopause, your doctor may also prescribe an estrogen to take along with Cyclogest to balance your hormones.

What You Need to Know About Cyclogest

The vaginal suppository melts quickly from the heat of your hands and fingers so it should be inserted high up into your vagina right after it is out of the packaging. As Cyclogest dissolves, it can ooze out from your vagina and get onto your bedding, clothing, or furniture as you sit. Some women insert the suppository just before bed and wear a panty liner and a towel to save on laundry and possible stains. Keep Cyclogest and other drugs out of children’s reach and away from pets and sources of heat and sunlight.
