Pregnyl review

Pregnyl is administered to women with fertility disorders. This medication helps in producing mature eggs for fertilization. Pregnyl is injected to help women get pregnant, usually right after the patient is treated with follicle stimulating hormones.

The standard dosage is usually 250 mcg per day after the last treatment of follicle stimulating hormones. The dosage may be changed by the doctor depending on the patient's condition. For a missed dosage, contact your doctor to get a new dosing schedule.

If you are administering the medication yourself, read carefully the instructions included in the package or follow the instructions of your doctor. It is also important to clean your hands thoroughly before handling the medication and its packaging. If you notice any particles or discoloration, consult your doctor and do not use the medication for the meantime.

Minor side effects include vomiting, nausea and skin irritation at the area where the medication is injected. Serious side effects include dark urine, decreased amount of urine, stomach pain, skin edema of the legs, diarrhea, weight gain, difficulty in breathing and vaginal bleeding.

If any of the above side effects occur, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.

Before taking Pregnyl, you must first consult a doctor. Tell your doctor if you are using non-prescribed or prescribed medicaments including herbal medicines and vitamins.

This medication may affect the results of laboratory tests including pregnancy tests and hormone level tests so it is important to inform the laboratory personnel that you are using the medication.

Patients who have adrenal gland or thyroid disorders, ovarian cysts, pituitary gland tumor, unusual vaginal bleeding and tumor of the female reproductive organ should not use Pregnyl. You must also inform the doctor if you have a history of liver disorder, allergies and other health disorders that may interrupt the effectiveness of the medication.

While undergoing treatment, if you become pregnant, it is best to inform your doctor. In this case your doctor may advise you to stop using the medication to avoid the risk to the unborn child.

There is no clinical test that can prove if Pregnyl is passed through breast milk during breast feeding. To be safe, you must consult your doctor if you plan to breast feed a baby.

Pregnyl is a prescribed medication and should not be shared with others even with the same health problems. While undergoing treatment, you must religiously follow the scheduled appointments with your doctor and undergo all necessary laboratory tests and medical exams. This will help identify if the medication is working well.

Store the medication in a safe place away from children's reach.
