Can I drink Femoston during pregnancy planning?

Poor doctors! Spend 6 years studying in the university, go internship, gain valuable experience … But in the XXI century patients have more confidence in the Internet than a person with a profile education and work experience in the specialty! They begin to get advice on the forums, and they think they know better than the doctor.

For women who are looking for an answer to the question of how the drug Femoston behaves not in the gynecologist’s office, but in the World Wide Web, we collected some information.

We remind you that self-medication — especially hormonal drugs — can cause irreparable damage to your health! Medicines should be prescribed by your doctor after examination and examination!

Femoston. Instruction to the preparation

Femoston 2/10 is a two-phase combination drug.

The composition of the medicinal product includes:

  • Estradiol — 2 mg;
  • dydrogesterone — 10 mg.

FemostonV blistere 28 tablets — 14 pink and 14 light yellow.

Indication for the purpose of the drug:

  • hormone replacement therapy during menopause after surgery or for other reasons;
  • in the prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.

Pharmacokinetics of the drug

The synthetic hormone 17β-estradiol, which is part of the drug, is an analog of natural female estradiol.

Dydrogesterone is a synthetic analogue of progesterone. Provides growth of the endometrium and the onset of menstruation. This gestagen is not a derivative of testosterone, therefore it has no side effects characteristic of natural hormones. This substance is part of the famous drug «Dyufaston».

How to take the drug

Dosage appoints the attending physician depending on the diagnosis of the patient. Femoston 2/10 take 1 tablet a day without interruption.

The intake of the drug does not depend on the intake of food, but it is advisable to drink it at the same time of day. From 1 to 14 day of the cycle, pink tablets should be used. From the 15th to the 28th day they take pills of light yellow color.

Estrogens promote the proliferation of endometrial cells and its timely rejection. Dydrogesterone provides secretory changes in the endometrium for normal implantation of the baby’s future, if the egg is fertilized.

Side effects of the drug

If you experience any of the following symptoms, you should always contact your doctor:

  • A woman and pills, a reproductive system — uterine bleeding, abdominal pain, swelling of the mammary glands;
  • Gastrointestinal system — nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, impaired liver function;
  • nervous system — depressive conditions, headache;
  • allergic reactions;
  • rarely: violations of libido, candidiasis, oncopathology of the breast.

Femoston has many serious contraindications! Before you start taking such a drug you need a thorough examination and consultation of specialists.

Why is Femoston prescribed for pregnancy planning?

Just so, or just in case, the doctor will not prescribe hormonal drugs — this requires a testimony. A woman will have to undergo ultrasound to determine the thickness of the endometrium.

If at the end of the first phase of the menstrual cycle the thickness of the inner layer of the uterus is only 7-8 mm, then even with normal ovulation the pregnancy will not develop. Therefore, the indication for prescribing the drug will be a hypoestrogenic condition.

The method of taking the drug during pregnancy planning does not differ from the classical scheme, which is described in the instructions to Femoston. In some sources, there is a recommendation to add Dufaston in the second half of the cycle. But this issue is better discussed with the attending physician.

Ovulation and Femoston

And what about the egg? After all, it’s a hormonal drug! Ovulation will not be — women are nervous, reading the instructions to the drug. So what will happen to the egg? To answer this question, you will need an instruction to the drug.

The annotation clearly states — «Femoston is not a contraceptive».

There are 2 mechanisms by which hormonal contraceptives work:

  • suppression of folliculogenesis;
  • thickening of mucus in the cervical canal. In this sperm can not get to the cherished goal.

The girl drinks a tablet. With the use of drugs to suppress folliculogenesis, the production of follicle-stimulating and luteinizing hormones is inhibited. Reducing the level of FSH provokes a decrease in the amount of estradiol. This leads to suppression of ovulation.

The main active substance of «Femoston» is estradiol. That is, taking the drug, we also add the missing hormone.

Preparations from a series of mini-pili — thicken the cervical secretions. They do not interfere with the maturation and release of the egg, but simply do not let the sperm through the cervix — a sort of hormonal barrier method.

Femoston tablets do not use any contraceptive mechanism — neither blocking of ovulation, nor physical protection from penetration of spermatozoa. So, under favorable circumstances, conception during therapy with Femoston is possible.

If the pregnancy has occurred, then the tablets for the second phase will support the desired hormonal level similarly to DuPhasto
