Is Regestrone Right Medication For Infection In Uterus And Its Side Effects?

Hi, my mother is 48 yrs old. From last 8 months she is having irregular periods, sometimes after 2 months and sometimes after 3 months.Last month when her periods started she felt severe abdominal pain during bleeding. Its been one and half month that she is suffering from this bleeding and abdominal pain .After sonography, the gynecologist that she is consulting with told that there is a minor infection in the uterus and has prescribed regestrone tablets 2tab/day for 7 days and 1tab/day for 14 days. Is this safe and right for the problem that she is suffering from? Please advice me

Hi,

Your mother may be suffering from endometriosis. Though not exactly an infection, it affects the lining of the uterus which causes pain and bleeding. This is common in perimenopausal women meaning women around the age of attaining menopause. The medication prescribed is correct and should be taken in the complete course. Though if the symptoms don't subside, I would suggest you do a repeat scan and look for endometrial thickness. Analgesics can be tried for the pain.

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

Regards,
