Utrogestran

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello all, 

Does anyone take Utrogestran? If so, do you take it 2tabs for 12-14 days at night or 1 each day for 21 days? 

I've tried the 2 at night but makes me quite drowsy during the day 😕. 

Going to be driving a lot soon and this concerns me... 😖.

Just wondered if anyone has any advice regarding dosage and what may help (apart from ditching the whole thing!!)

Thank you.

    Hi AJ

    I take utrogestan 1 tablet at night every night. I know some ladies are prescribed 2 but I've only ever been on 1 and that's my ongoing prescription. I take mine only at night, as you say it makes you sleepy, and a friend of mine who takes 2 also takes them at night. To be honest, the mugginess in the morning did pass for me but might be an idea to check with your doctor. When I did take 2 I had ocular migraines. Not sure if that helps at all but good luck xx

      Hi Sassy, 

      Thanks so much for replying...  so I hope you don't mind me asking... 

      do you take them every night ongoing or just for a set number of days? If a set number, do you have a bleed using one tab at night or not (sorry,  not sure of your circumstances). 

      I'm wondering if I need to take two as one may be enough to instigate a bleed on stopping and also maybe I won't be as drowsy?! 

      I do like them as they've given me the least side effects... 

      Thank you again.

      Hi AJ

      Sorry, I Should've given you some more details, it might have helped! Im 43 and gave primary ovarian failure diagnosed at 16 so never had a natural period. I take utrogestan on an ongoing basis but also take 1mg sandrena gel and 5mg of testogel as I don't produce anything on my own so I'll be quite different to you. I do have sporadic bleeding but it's not from stopping any of the bhrt, as I wouldn't have any at all if it wasn't for the meds. The other lady I know personally takes 2 and she is 54, and its all she takes. Not sure about the bleeding but certainly she's anything but drowsy! Hope that helps though xx

      Hi again, 

      Wowzers! We are totally different... mad isn't it that hormones can cause such havoc!!?

      Ok, I've made the decision to have a little break then put a oestrogen patch on from a week before we hit Disneyland, then I'll be back by the time I start the second course of utrogestran - I'll take it from there and give it a good 3 months for my body to adjust unless I start with really bad side effects again!!!

      Hope you continue to do well...

      Thanks for your info... it's just good to know of someone else  taking utro as it's obviously not a really popular form of HRT to use... unless other people are ignoring me!!! 😂😳😬

      Have a good day! 

      Best wishes, 

      AJ. x

    Hi AJ

    Yes I know, all unique in our own special way! Sounds like you've got a plan which is half the battle. I find you kind of have to muddle through with what works best, the support and understanding isn't always great. If you're in the UK you could get in touch with the menopause society which is the patient arm, they have specialist nurses who can advise fir a small fee to the charity. I've done it and they were really good. Enjoy Disney smile xx

      Oh, thanks for that, good idea - I think I may get in touch with them to ask a few questions as a girl could go mad looking at different web pages that all contradict each other!! 😬

      Thank you. x
