Utrozhestan - a drug, an active substance which is the female sex hormone progesterone
Progesterone - norm and pathology
. It is assigned in the case where the body produces enough progesterone, resulting in various disorders in women.
Why appointed utrozhestan
Utrozhestan is assigned when there is an infringement of the second phase of the menstrual cycle due to an inadequate secretion of progesterone. Violations of the second phase of the menstrual cycle can lead to infertility.
Utrozhestan indicated for hormonal disorders such as premenstrual syndrome (disorders of the central nervous system before menses), dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation very), menstrual irregularities as a result of violations or lack of ovulation
Ovulation - How to determine as accurately as possible?
(rare and scanty menstruation or the complete lack thereof), intermenstrual bleeding.
He was appointed in mastopathy - proliferation in the mammary glands and connective tissue cysts that develop on the background of the formation of the body of excess female hormone estrogen (utrozhestan suppress excess estrogen synthesis).
During menopause, after menopause or when the ovaries nefunktsiniruyuschih utrozhestan
Utrozhestan - corrects the deficiency of progesterone
administered with estrogen replacement therapy. In preparation for in vitro fertilization utrozhestan prescribe progesterone instead of their own women (its synthesis is inhibited) managed to create the menstrual cycle.
Finally, utrozhestan used for prevention of hormone-dependent diseases - uterine fibroids and endometriosis, and to support pregnancy and the prevention of miscarriage.
All these states are usually very concerned about the woman as lead or infertility, or to diseases of female genital sphere with unpleasant consequences.
Is it possible to combine the reception utrogestan and alcohol
In order to cure or prevent all of the above condition, the woman should strictly abide by all the prescribing physician. But can we at the same time to drink alcohol?
The manual, developed by a group of pharmaceutical companies Bezen Helska, letting utrozhestan, says nothing about whether it is possible to combine the intake of the drug with alcohol, so most likely, no severe emergency situation in this combination will not happen. More detail is the combination of pharmaceutical companies are usually not investigated, so no one will certainly not be able to say exactly how simultaneous reception utrogestan and alcohol will affect a particular woman.
But the well-known effect of alcohol on the body. This substance, which has toxic effects on the central nervous system. As the alcohol will affect the complex neurohumoral ties that exist between the brain and the reproductive system of a particular woman can only guess: too much in this respect, the individual chains, each of which can be broken under the influence of alcohol.
It is unlikely that it will be some strong offense, likely a woman will not even notice it, but it is a minor violation may lead to another hormonal malfunction and that all treatment will come to nothing.
In addition, alcohol stimulates the adrenal gland, increases the secretion of hormones - adrenaline, cortisol, aldosterone. It makes a woman's body to work under stress
How to beat stress? Create an oasis
, Which in turn may change the ratio (reactivity) to various drugs, including the utrozhestanu. At this dose drugs effective under normal conditions, can be ineffective or, conversely, cause overdose.
A woman should know that the combination of alcohol with drugs leads to different, usually negative and unpredictable consequences. Therefore, if the decision to treat was made seriously and by receiving utrogestan expected positive effects, risks and neutralize the effects of alcohol does not make sense.
Can the application of alcohol during treatment utrozhestanom emergencies arise?
Rarely, but they can. They, at least two. So, welcome utrogestan potentiates the effect of antihypertensive (blood pressure lowering) drugs and alcohol at the beginning of his admission can dramatically expand the blood vessels and reduce blood pressure. The combination of these substances may lead to loss of consciousness and even collapse. But this happens rarely and usually in the predisposition to low pressure or to a sharp change (eg during menopause).
Another situation is related to the liver: utrozhestan has some negative effects on the liver, and alcohol can significantly potentiate (enhance) it, which would lead to severe liver damage in case it already exists some flowing invisibly disease.
Admission utrogestan alcohol is better not to combine.
