Discuss your situation with your doctor if you are unable to conceive and successfully maintain implantation due to an inadequacy in the second half of your menstrual cycle that causes below normal amounts of progesterone, or your uterine lining (endometrium) is not responding to normal stimulation of progesterone. You may be diagnosed with a luteal phase defect (LPD) and you could benefit from a prescription for Crinone 8% Vaginal Gel with Applicators.
Some women may need a little extra help while undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Applying Crinone 8% Vaginal Gel with Applicators daily after you have the embryo transferred into your uterus and for the first 30 days of a confirmed pregnancy can increase the support needed for a growing embryo.
Infertility and early miscarriage can occur as a result of a luteal phase defect. Your luteal phase usually starts during the second half of your menstrual cycle and lasts about 12-14 days after ovulation. The corpus luteum is formed in an ovary at the site of a follicle that has matured and released its egg, in other words, ovulation occurs. It is also responsible for secreting progesterone to develop and maintain your uterine lining to get ready for the implantation of a fertilized egg.
Your doctor may request a pregnancy test before you start using Crinone 8% Vaginal Gel with Applicators. Explain other medical conditions, allergies, and fertility treatments to your doctor and list all OTC and Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin supplements. This will help your doctor determine if Crinone 8% Vaginal Gel with Applicators is right for your situation.
