Susten gel 1.35 gm is a topical prescription medication for restoring menstrual cycles in women whose periods have stopped. It is a natural female hormone essential for regulating ovulation (release of an egg from an ovary) and menstruation. It is also effective at treating infertility to help you get pregnant.
- In hormone replacement therapy:
Susten gel is a hormone replacement therapy that helps to relieve symptoms of menopause, such as mood swings, night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness and reduced sex drive. Since menopause can last for several years, this therapy can make a big difference in your daily life and mood. The topical medication contains progesterone, which helps to treat the above symptoms. However, it may not treat all symptoms of menopause; talk to your doctor. You should use this medicine as prescribed by your doctor.
- In the treatment of female fertility:
Susten contains progesterone, which is important in regulating ovulation and menstruation. It helps to cause menstrual periods in women who have not yet reached menopause but not having regular menses may be due to a lack of natural progesterone production. The topical medication also helps prepare the uterus for pregnancy by causing the uterus lining to thicken. This increases the possibility of a successful pregnancy. For best results, take this medicine as prescribed.
Susten 1.35 gm Gel is available in the form of a Gel tube, which should be applied topically directly inside the vagina using the applicator included with this medication once per day as directed by your doctor. The applicator should be inserted into the vagina. At the same time, you are in a sitting or a lying position, or in whatever position you feel comfortable, then press the thick end of the applicator firmly to dispense the small amount of gel into your vagina. Thoroughly clean the applicator after each use to prevent any bacterial contamination. It is advised to follow your doctor’s instructions while using this medication.
