Two months ago she had used susten vaginally, but it effected in coming mensus, which came eight days before the time.

How to use gestofit 200?
by: Wray

Hi Raj Any progesterone when first using it effects the cycle, which can be shortened or lengthened. It's a question of persevering through this, it does comes right about about 2-3 cycles. So the Gestofilt will have the same effect. Oral progesterone is the least effective Delivery system. So your wife will get the full benefit of the progesterone if she uses the capsule vaginally, or she can open it and rub the oil on to her skin. Either means is good, as the vagina and skin absorb it well. We do have more info on How to use progesterone. Please read through this page, it explains how much should be used and when. Take care Wray

How to Use Gestofit 300
by: HS - hyd

My wife was suggested to take Gestofit 300 SR from day 21, I could only find Gestofit 300 from the medical shops, Is there a difference between them? And also should it be taken orally or vaginally?

Please respond?

How to Use Gestofit 300

Hi HS I can't give you an answer about the two Gestofits, I suggest you ask your wife's doctor. I would always recommend using it vaginally, as most of the progesterone is destroyed when taken. We do have more info on our page on Delivery systems. Take care Wray

Hi there It obviously did not dissolve. If you are using a capsule, I suggest you open it and mix the contents with a small amount of skin cream, and apply that to your skin. We have more info about progesterone on our page How to use progesterone cream. Take care Wray

Gestofit 300/200 SR
by: Vinita

@ HS Hyderabad:

Gestofit 300 is capsules & Gestofit 300 SR is tablet, both are different
Gestofit 300 SR is tablet specially designed to administrate once a daily by ORAL ROUTE only.
It is very convinient to take.

It has longer half life and it gives 24 hours protection . Due to its unique drug delivery form its oral absorption is also promising.

Zara : It is Gestofit not Zestofit.

It has to be taken Oral only.
It is not for vaginal use.

gestofit 200

Hi there If your wife has PCOS this must be reversed before pregnancy can occur. Please ask her to have a vitamin D test done, as a lack of this is often a cause. There are other nutrients which help to reverse it too, these are listed on the page I've given you. I suggest opening the capsules and adding the contents to a small amount of skin cream and then applying that to the skin. Oral progesterone is the least effective Oral progesterone is the least effective Delivery system, "The liver and gut region removed a mean of 96 per cent of the progesterone entering these tissues", see here. Applying it topically she will get the full benefit. The PCOS page gives info on how to use progesterone, but this alone will not stop the condition, she must take the other nutrients too. Take care Wray
