Progesterone - Overview
Progesterone is a medication used in the management of certain types of amenorrhea and in the prevention of endometrial hyperplasia. Women who need a progesterone medication prescription can connect with a medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe progesterone medication, including progesterone cream and progesterone pills, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Progesterone Used For?
Progesterone prescription medication, marketed in under the brand Prometrium and others, is a type of steroid hormone and is used in the management of specific types of hormonal disorders and in the management of fertility issues. Progesterone is primarily indicated for use in secondary amenorrhea and in preventing endometrial hyperplasia in women receiving conjugated estrogen tablets who are nonhysterectomized and postmenopausal. The progesterone used in branded products is generally made from plant sources. In the body, progesterone is excreted via the bile and kidneys after primarily undergoing hepatic metabolism to pregnanediol and pregnanolone metabolites. Progesterone is also an ingredient in certain kinds of birth control medications. Progesterone is very similar in structure and effect to the medication medroxyprogesterone. Progesterone is combined with the medication estradiol in the medication Bijuva.
Progesterone - Cost and Dosage
Progesterone medication is available for oral use as capsules, as a suppository and as a cream. Progesterone itself is found as an odorless crystalline powder that is white in color and dissolves poorly in water. Made from plant sources, progesterone is micronized prior to use in capsules. Progesterone is often prescribed as progesterone 200 mg once per day for 12 days per 28-day cycle although the regimen depends on a variety of things that need to be assessed by the prescribing medical provider. Generic progesterone is relatively affordable, costing approximately 80 cents per progesterone 100 mg capsule at many pharmacies. Progesterone coupons may be available online and insurance may cover some or all of the cost of a progesterone prescription.
Can I Buy Progesterone Online?
Progesterone is a medication that requires a prescription to be dispensed in the United States. As a result, one cannot simply buy progesterone online without first getting a prescription from a doctor. For this reason, progesterone OTC (over the counter) is not available, either. However, people in need of a progesterone prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe progesterone medication, including progesterone cream and progesterone pills, when appropriate to do so.
Progesterone - Side Effects
Progesterone prescription medication can cause side effects in patients, including headaches, mood changes, nausea, breast tenderness, dizziness and abdominal pain. Side effects from progesterone use can vary from person to person. Care should be taken when progesterone is used in combination with other hormones as it can lead to an increased risk of deep vein thrombosis. Progesterone should not be used by women with abnormal genital bleeding, a history of breast cancer, thromboembolism, liver disease or a known or suspected pregnancy. Progesterone and alcohol should not be used concomitantly. Questions and concerns about the side effects related to progesterone medication use should be directed to one's pharmacist and medical provider before use.
