About the Progynon Depot:
Estradiol valerate is an estrogen, which is produced in the ovaries inside female. When it is not produced in sufficient quantities in the body (for example: in postmenopausal women), then it has to be taken in the form of Progynon Depot, an injectable estrogen. This medication is available in several forms such as Ampuoles, vaginal injection, vaginal tabs, injections and skin patches.
Uses of the Progynon Depot:
Estradiol valerate is prescribed primarily for the treatment of menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, burning, and irritation. Some of its other uses are prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, and replacement of estrogen in women with ovarian failure or other disorders that result in deficiency of natural estrogen in the body.
Working of the drug:
In women, menopause occurs somewhere between the age of 45-55 years. After menopause the body produces less amount of estrogen. This can cause symptoms such as “hot flushes”.
