Endometrin is a tablet that’s inserted into the vagina with a special applicator. It’s specially formulated with the female hormone progesterone, which is essential in preparing the uterus for receiving a fertilized egg to implant into the uterine wall. It’s often used by women who experience fertility problems or are taking fertility treatments that cause progesterone levels to drop.
Endometrin supports female fertility by providing a boost of progesterone. Once inserted, it dissolves and is absorbed into the uterus to help the woman get and stay pregnant. Typical application is two to three times a day for up to 10 weeks, but it may be different based on what a doctor prescribes.
While it’s unlikely you’ll experience any side effects, some women have reported various minor complications. The most common are uterine spasms, spotting, and vaginal irritation, swelling, burning, itching, or rash.
Other side effects have been recorded, but are less common. These include nausea, vomiting, breast swelling, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, stomach cramps, dizziness, drowsiness, mood swings, irritability, muscle or joint pain, and increased nighttime urination.
Some side effects are more serious and should be explained to your doctor if they occur. These include breast lumps, severe mental or mood changes such as depression, unusual vaginal bleeding, swelling of the ankles and feet, and yellowing skin or eyes.
Effectiveness varies between women, but overall, most find it to be a helpful addition in their efforts to conceive. It’s easy to use and it has been found to be as effective as intramuscular progesterone, which is injected directly into the muscle.
