Susten 100 mg
About Susten 100 mg
Susten 100mg Tablet helps women who have problems with their menstrual cycle.
It is a natural female hormone that helps control ovulation (when a woman's ovary releases an egg) and the menstrual cycle. You can use it to treat infertility and get pregnant.
The primary salt present in the medicine is Progesterone.
Sun Pharmaceutical is the manufacturer of Susten.
Susten 100 mg comes with highly positive reviews and is a recommended medication for helping women with their menstrual cycle.
Susten tablets are used with Estrogen replacement treatment for women who have gone through menopause.
They keep the Estrogen from making the lining of the uterus thicker, called Endometrium Hyperplasia.
Progesterone treats women who haven't reached menopause but aren't having periods because their bodies don't have enough Progesterone.
Hormone replacement therapy
Menopause is when a woman's periods stop. It comes with getting older.
Female hormone levels can go up and down before and during menopause. This can lead to hot flashes and dryness in the genital area.
Some women get relief from these symptoms with Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), also called menopausal hormone therapy.
HRT could also help prevent Osteoporosis.
Treatment of Female infertility
Female infertility is when a woman can't get pregnant after trying for a year.
If a woman has frequent miscarriages, this is also called being unable to have children.
Progesterone Tablet is a female hormone. It helps start and keep a pregnancy going.
It also stops the Endometrium (the lining of the uterus) from getting thicker, which is what Estrogen does.
