Ciclovulan review

Ciclovulan, which is marketed under the brand Aygestin and many other trade names, is a medication that can be used to prevent pregnancy when taken in small amounts. This drug is also used for examinations to find out if the body is creating certain female hormones—natural substances that affect the uterus—in a healthy and regulated manner. It is under the progestin-class of medicine and works by causing the uterus to produce certain hormones that prevent conception and hampering the growth of the uterus's lining.

Aside from its aforementioned birth control capabilities, Ciclovulan can also be used by women suffering from amenorrhea or lack of menstrual flow, endometriosis or an agonizing sickness wherein the anomalous lining of the uterus causes its bearer immense pain, and abnormal uterine bleeding. This drug can be further employed to treat certain types of cancer as well.

Ciclovulan should be administered just after a meal or anytime with food intake to prevent getting an upset stomach. It must be taken as prescribed by your doctor; ergo, he's the one responsible for deciding your drug dosage in lieu of a recommended daily dosage. Its typical dosing period ranges from five to thirteen days during the tail end of your menstrual cycle.

Within three to ten days of stopping therapy, you menstrual period should restart. In regards to cancer treatment, the medication should be administered a lot more frequently. You must follow your dosing schedule to the letter, and be sure to ask your doctor for any additional questions and concerns.

Ciclovulan has been known to cause irritability, sleeplessness, depression, dizziness, headache, vomiting, and nausea. Moreover, even though these symptoms should stop once your body acclimates itself to the drug, you should consult your pharmacist or doctor immediately if any of them persists or worsens.

You should consult your physician if you experience any of these less common but equally grave side effects: changes in vaginal bleeding (prolonged or complete stoppage of bleeding, breakthrough bleeding, spotting), warmth or redness, pain in the calves accompanied by swelling, shortness of breath, acute chest pain, swelling of the hands or feet, tingling or numbness in your legs or arms, changes in vision, dizziness or fainting, and sudden severe headache.

As per usual, before taking this drug or any other drug, you must first report to your doctor your medical history, especially if you've ever suffered any of the following: jaundice (yellowing of the eyes or skin), excessive weight gain or fluid retention during the menstrual cycle, depression, high blood levels of fats or cholesterol, cancer of the breast or genitals, heart attacks, blood clots, strokes, kidney problems, liver maladies, heart disorders, asthma, diabetes, migraine headaches, seizures, and high blood pressure.

Don't smoke cigarettes when under Ciclovulan treatment, and tell your doctor if you're going into surgery, including dental surgery, before taking this medicine. Keep in mind that this drug can increase your risk for liver tumors, vision problems, gallbladder disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, blood clots, and strokes. Because it can potentially harm the fetus, Ciclovulan must not be taken by expecting mothers, particularly during the first four months of pregnancy.
