Gestormone review

Carrying a baby in a womans tummy is such a wonderful occurrence. However, different conditions may threaten the general health of both the mother and the child. Some fetuses give up in the first trimester, some in the second trimester, and others in the third and final trimester. Although a bigger percentage of pregnancies are successful, the mortality rate of fetuses is still an alarming fact. Good thing a medication that helps the fetus go full term was finally made available in the market.

Gestormone is a synthetic progesterone derivative that is used to treat threatened pregnancies. It can stop premature labor from occurring and can help women carry a fetus to full term and give birth to a healthy newborn.

Since the medication is intended for pregnant women, Gestormone should not be taken without the supervision of a healthcare professional. Its use and progressive effect on the patient must be closely monitored by a healthcare professional. Just the right amount of the medication is all that is needed to benefit from its positive effects. The usual dosage of Gestormone is 5mg to be taken three times daily. A patient must not exceed the maximum amount of 20mg a day to be safe. Your dosage requirement may vary depending on your condition. Only your doctor would be able to determine, based on a series of tests, how much Gestormone you need daily to benefit from it. Never use another person’s prescription for your condition. Take time to see the doctor yourself and talk with them about the indications and contraindications of the medicine that may occur in your case.

Special precaution must be taken by pregnant women who are diabetic and who have a history of heart problems and kidney failures. Although pregnant women hardly take any medicines apart from supplements that are needed to keep them and their baby healthy, taking any medication along with Gestormone must be done through consultation with your doctor.

Gestormone has some known side effects. Most of these side effects are caused by the progesterone hormone that is in the medication. Diarrhea, headache, acne, hyperthermia, insomnia, drowsiness, and depression are common side effects of Gestormone treatment. All these conditions usually come on mildly; otherwise you must rush to make an appointment with your doctor for advice and attention.

Gestormone is found ineffective to a pregnancy threatened by placental dysfunction. Aside from maintaining pregnancy, fetuses that were administered with Gestormone proved to have slightly higher birth weight than usual. Although Gestormone basically interferes with pregnancy, a series of tests have proven that it does not cause fetal harm and is essentially safe. Case-controlled studies only showed positive effects of Gestormone in holding up threatened and recurrent miscarriage. Prolonged intake and higher doses also help to stop premature labor.

A tip to ensure that Gestormone would be successful all around, remember not to miss any appointments with your doctor regarding the medication usage and the progress of the baby in the womb. Close monitoring is essential for pregnant women, especially when they are in the high risk group. Do not put off any warning sign that tells you something is not right. Using a preventive measure proves to be a lot safer than undergoing a treatment process.
