Uses of Regestrone Tablet

Benefits of Regestrone Tablet

In Heavy menstrual bleeding

Regestrone 5mg Tablet is a synthetic hormone which replicates the effect of a natural female hormone called progesterone. Progesterone slows the growth of the lining of the womb before menstruation, which reduces the bleeding during menstruation. If heavy periods become such a problem that they interfere with your everyday life, then try taking things a little easier on those days. Some women find that relaxation techniques or yoga help them feel more relaxed and reduce stress. Getting a lot of exercise can also help.

In Pain during menstruation

Regestrone 5mg Tablet is a man-made hormone that replicates the effect of a natural female hormone called progesterone. It counters the effects of another hormone called estrogen and reduces pain (cramps) during periods. Painful periods have a big impact on the everyday life of a woman and there is not always an obvious cause. This medicine is normally used during a particular part of the menstrual cycle. You may have to use painkillers (NSAIDs) as well for rapid pain relief. Ask your doctor about which are most suitable.

In Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue like the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places. The main symptoms include pain in your lower stomach or back, period pain, pain during and after sex, constipation, diarrhea, and feeling sick. It can also make it difficult to get pregnant. Regestrone 5mg Tablet is a synthetic hormone that behaves like the natural hormone progesterone. It works by preventing the lining of your womb and any endometriosis tissue from growing too quickly. This will help relieve the symptoms you may have. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to be effective and you may need other medicines or procedures to help control endometriosis.

In Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

Regestrone 5mg Tablet is a synthetic progestin that replicates the effect of a natural female hormone called progesterone. It may be used to treat premenstrual syndrome (PMS) but is not always recommended for this purpose. It may help reduce PMS symptoms such as mood swings, anxiousness, tiredness, bloating, breast tenderness, and headaches. Lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, getting plenty of sleep, and using relaxation techniques may also be helpful.
