Hi,

Krimson-35 contains both ethinyl estradiol and cryproterone which is used in the treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and its associated symptoms like excessive hair growth or hirsutism, facial hair growth, acnes, irregular periods etc. Cryproterone can block the excess production of male type hormone called androgens which is responsible for unwanted excessive hair acnes. By blocking the production of androgens in the ovaries, Cryproterone helps to reduce unwanted hair growth and acnes. On the other hand, by reducing the amount of androgens in the blood, Ethinyl estradiol can enhance the effects of Cryproterone in the body. In some cases, Krimson-35 may cause weight gain. For that reason, in order to maintain a healthy weight, it is recommended to check your weight and do some exercises regularly.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
