How Long Will It Take For The Petogen To Work Out Of My System?

Hello, my husband and I want to start trying for a family. I have been on Petogen 150mg for more than 6 months already. I am due to return for my next appointment on 1st June 2012. Since I no longer need to be on Petogen, please could you advise how long it will take for the Petogen to work out of my system. Thank you

Hello,

You were on Petogen for birth control. Presently, you are planning for a baby, after stopping Petogen you should start getting normal periods. If you had your first period after stopping Petogen, then there is possibility of falling pregnant. Do continue to have unprotected sex with your partner (husband). Some women fall pregnant immediately after stopping petogen while some can take 18 months after they stop birth control to get pregnant. it varies from individual to individual.

Since ovulation after coming off of birth control pills can be somewhat unpredictable, having unprotected intercourse can result in pregnancy. You can try for 2years (24 months) if you are getting regular periods. If your periods are not regular, get treated for it. Take uterine tonic for better uterine health.

If it is not working still & you are not getting pregnant you can get clinically examined by a Gynae specialized in infertility so that both the partners can be tested & treatment started at the earliest. Both the partners should stay away from stress (physical or emotional) and avoid smoking, alcohol or drugs, etc.

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

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K., General & Family Physician
