hi ,
HORMORIN is a drug that contains Dydrogesterone, which is a potent, orally active progestogen.
It can be used in patient of habitual abortion (who tends to abort in first trimester like your girlfriend.)
Actually during normal menstrual cycle the main hormone which control everything is OESTROGEN, but during pregnancy another hormone PROGESTERONE play the vital role and for its action OESTROGEN level should be minimum. In certain patient the level of this progesterone is so low and oestrogen is high so they cant maintain their pregnancy. Here HORMORIN do the job.
It has an anti oestrogenic effect which decrease level of oestrogen and increase level of progesterone and helps to avoid miscarriage.
Thank you, BEST OF LUCK.
