Generic Name: Aygestin

What is Aygestin?

Progesterone is one of the main components that causes this lining to shed each month when pregnancy doesn't happen. This shedding is your menstrual period.

When progesterone isn't there, your menstrual period becomes irregular or infrequent, and the lining of the uterus stays thick and full of blood. Then, if that lining stays thickened month after month, it can be unhealthy. This can increase the chances of developing hyperplasia, or an overgrowth of cells in the uterine lining, which can lead to endometrial cancer.

These scientists used micronizationa process that allows the body to easily absorb natural progesterone when it is taken orally. You can ask about choices that come from natural plant sources. You may have heard about topical progesterone cream or gel preparations that are available either over-the-counter or with a prescription.

Forum RulesHi everybody, Its been about 3 years since I posted on here, trying to loose weight, and I am not sure what the new updates are to the whole diets that work, I do know they are all mixed. I was given aygestin to stop bleeding. I was given it for 10 days and was told that i would stop bleeding within 2 or 3 days after starting it, which i did, then when i took my last pill within 2 to 3 days i would start my period again but it would be more normal, which it was.

I think my metformin helped with it too, but after i bled after taking my last pill it was a lighter period and only lasted 4 days. I was prescribed 5 days of aygestin, but the next day my regular gyn upped my prescription to 14 days on 14 days off aygestin for two months. I was sort of confused because the bleeding has not stopped, I'm on day 4.
