Dydrogesterone tablets are a medication that contains the synthetic hormone dydrogesterone. Dydrogesterone is a progestogen, which means it has similar effects to the hormone progesterone in the body.
Dydrogesterone tablets are primarily used in women’s health to support various reproductive functions. Doctors often give these medications to treat various health problems, such as:
Menstrual disorders: Dydrogesterone can help regulate irregular menstrual cycles and treat conditions like dysfunctional uterine bleeding or amenia (absence of menstruation).
Endometriosis: It is often used as part of the treatment for endometriosis, a condition where the tissue lining the uterus grows outside of it, causing pain and other symptoms.
Assisted reproductive technology (ART): Dydrogesterone may be prescribed during fertility treatments, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), to support the implantation and maintenance of pregnancy.
Threatened miscarriage: In cases where there is a risk of miscarriage due to hormonal imbalances or other factors, dydrogesterone can be prescribed to support the early stages of pregnancy.

Dydrogesterone is a synthetic hormone that is similar to the naturally occurring hormone progesterone. Here are some of the potential benefits of dydrogesterone tablets:
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT): Dydrogesterone can be used as part of hormone replacement therapy for women who have low levels of progesterone. It helps to balance the hormonal levels and alleviate symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances, such as irregular menstrual cycles, heavy painful periods, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Menstrual Disorders: Dygesterone is often prescribed to regulate menstrual cycles and treat various menstrual disorders. It can help in cases of irregular or absent periods, as well as heavy or prolonged bleeding.
Endometriosis: Dydrogesterone is commonly used in the treatment of endometriosis, a condition where the tissue lining the uterus grows outside of it. It helps to reduce the growth of endometrial tissue and alleviate symptoms like pelvic pain, painful periods, and infertility associated with endometriosis.
Assisted Reproduction: In assisted reproduction techniques such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), dydrogesterone is often prescribed to support the implantation and maintenance of pregnancy. It helps to prepare the uterine lining for embryo implantation and supports early pregnancy until the placenta takes over progesterone production.
Threatened Miscarriage: Dydrogesterone may be prescribed in cases of threatened miscarriage, where there is a risk of pregnancy loss. It helps to support the pregnancy by maintaining the uterine lining and reducing the risk of miscarriage.
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS): Dydrogesterone can be beneficial in managing symptoms of PMS, such as mood swings, bloating, breast tenderness, and irritability. It helps to stabilize hormonal fluctuations and alleviate these symptoms.
