Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Your doctor is right.
ideally the product is to be used within the expiry daye. Even if it is used after the expiry , its unlikely that it looses its potency completely. It only decreases the potency .
In case you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Wishing you happy and healthy life

Take Care
