Crinone Uses

Progesterone vaginal gel and vaginal tablets belong to the class of medications called progestins. These medications are used as part of an in-vitro fertilization (IVF) plan. They help to prepare the uterus lining so that a fertilized egg can be implanted (attached to the uterus) and to maintain a pregnancy once a fertilized egg has been implanted.

Crinone (Progesterone-vaginal) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Crinone (Progesterone-vaginal) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Crinone (Progesterone-vaginal) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Crinone (Progesterone-vaginal) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are using Crinone (Progesterone-vaginal), speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Crinone (Progesterone-vaginal) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Crinone (Progesterone-vaginal) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use Crinone (Progesterone-vaginal) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Crinone Dosage

Vaginal gel: The recommended dose of progesterone vaginal gel is 90 mg (one applicator) inserted into the vagina once or twice daily, starting the day of embryo transfer. If pregnancy occurs, treatment may be continued for up to 12 weeks.

To insert progesterone vaginal gel, hold the applicator by the thick end and shake down to ensure the contents are at the thin end. Twist off the tab and gently insert the thin end of the applicator into the vagina while you are in a sitting position or when lying on your back with your knees bent. Press the thick end of the applicator firmly to deposit the gel. Remove and discard the applicator. Applicators are intended for a single use only.

Vaginal tablets: The recommended dose of progesterone vaginal tablets is 100 mg inserted into the vagina 2 or 3 times daily starting the day after egg retrieval. If pregnancy occurs, treatment may be continued for up to 10 weeks.

To insert progesterone vaginal tablets, place one tablet in the space provided at the end of the applicator. The tablet should fit snugly and not fall out. While sitting, standing, or lying on your back with your knees bent, gently insert the thin end of the applicator (the one containing the tablet) well into the vagina. Push the plunger to release the tablet. Remove and discard the applicator. Applicators are intended for a single use only.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to use Crinone (Progesterone-vaginal) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, use it the following day and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
