What Crinone Vaginel Gel is and what it is used for

The full name of your medicine is Crinone 8% w/w vaginal gel. In this leaflet the shorter name Crinone is used. Crinone contains a hormone called progesterone. When the gel is inserted into your vagina, the progesterone is slowly released into your bloodstream throughout the day Crinone is used to give you extra progesterone in the treatment of infertility due to incorrect levels of progesterone during the menstrual cycle or when you are having an assisted fertility procedure. This is to help you get pregnant. You may also be asked to continue using Crinone to support your new pregnancy.

How to take Crinone Vaginel Gel

Always use Crinone exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Recommended dose Insert the contents of one applicator of Crinone into your vagina each day, starting after your doctor tells you that you have ovulated, or on the 18th-21st day of your menstrual cycle. (The first day of your menstrual cycle is the day your period starts.) When used during in-vitro fertilisation, from the day of the embryo transfer, insert the contents of one applicator of Crinone into your vagina each day, preferably in the morning. Once tests confirm that you are pregnant, you may be asked to keep using Crinone to support your new pregnancy – for a total of 30 days. The applicator is designed in such a way that an exact amount of gel (1.125 g, containing 90 mg progesterone) is delivered. It is expected that a small amount of gel will be left in the applicator. This can be thrown away as you will have received all of the medicine that you need. How to use This medicine is only for use in your vagina using the pre-filled applicator supplied in the pack. Before using the applicator, please read all of the instructions below. What your applicator looks like 1. air tank 2. flat part of the thick end 3. thick end 4. thin end 5. cap page 2 40405100006 TW839300 Getting your applicator ready Grip the applicator by the thick end between your thumb and index finger. Face the thin end of the applicator down to the ground and shake the applicator down to move all the gel inside to the thin end. Opening your applicator Grip the applicator by the flat part of the thick end. Twist off and remove the cap from the opposite thin end. To stop the gel from flowing out before use, do not press the air tank at the thick end at this stage. Inserting your applicator Lean back or lie down with your knees bent and spread apart. Carefully insert the applicator well into your vagina, until your hand touches your body. Press the air tank at the thick end of the applicator firmly to deliver the gel from the applicator into your vagina. After using your applicator Throw away the applicator, including the small amount of gel that is left inside. Use each applicator only once. Crinone gel can stay in your vagina for several days. You may get a beige to brownish clumpy or cloudy white discharge during this time. This is nothing to worry about. If you use more Crinone than you should You are unlikely to use too much of this medicine as each applicator contains the right amount. If you forget to use Crinone Do not use a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. If you forget to use Crinone on one day, please continue as usual with a single dose on the following day. If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine ask your doctor or pharmacist
