Crinone Vaginal Gel

It can be stressful when you are trying to conceive. Before you pursue expensive treatments such as a fertility clinic, there are some methods you can try on your own. One of them is the use of Crinone vaginal gel. It delivers additional progesterone to the uterus.

What is it Used for?

Crinone Gel (progesterone gel) is used to help women to enhance their ability to be able to successfully conceive a baby. The wall of the vagina will be coated with this gel. Through sexual activity, progesterone is created and that is going to be successfully kept in the uterus. This will increase the chance of conceiving a baby naturally. For the best results, it should be used during ovulation.

Dosing & Administration

Crinone vaginal gel needs to be administered once or twice per day. If you take it once a day, do so in the morning. If you take it twice, is it when you get up and again before you go to bed. Each dose comes in a pre-measured applicator. Shake it a few times and then remove the tab at the end. You can be in a sitting or lying down position when you insert the applicator into the vaginal opening. Once inserted, squeeze the opposite end of the applicator in order to release the Crinone vaginal gel.

For the best results, this gel should be used once or twice per day until a woman has confirmed she is pregnant. Once she is pregnant, it can continue to be used for up to 12 weeks as a way to help with reducing the risk of a miscarriage. By week 12 of the pregnancy, the placenta should be able to produce enough progesterone.

Side Effects & Precautions

The use of Crinone vaginal gel is only going to help with increasing the risk of pregnancy when a woman has a lower than normal amount of progesterone. If there are other fertility issues then this isnít going to help with natural conception.

Not everyone is a good candidate for the use of this product. Women that have any of the following may not be able to use Crinone vaginal gel:
