How is the medication used?

The active substance of Orgametril (lynestrenol) works in a similar way to the natural sex hormone progesterone, a hormone that plays an important role in the growth of the uterine mucosa. Doctors prescribe Orgametril, among other things, to treat:

  • Menstrual disorders, such as abnormal blood loss, pain during ovulation or the cessation of menstrual periods;
  • The suppression of ovulation or the delay of the menstruation;
  • Endometriosis, a condition in which the uterine mucosa grows in other abdominal cavities;
  • Hormone therapy (in combination with an oestrogen hormone) during or after the menopause;
  • Cancer of the uterine mucosa.

How should Orgametril be taken?

Swallow the tablet(s) whole with sufficient liquid, ideally at the same time each day. You can take the medicine with or without food. The use of Orgametril depends on the condition for which you are taking the medicine. If there is a problem with the menstrual cycle, take the tablets usually a certain period of time per cycle, for example, day 14 to day 25. In other conditions, Orgametril should be swallowed every day. Your doctor will advise you on the best way to use Orgametril. Always follow your doctor's instructions.

Unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor, the usual dose is as follows: If a fault occurs in the menstrual cycle: take from the 14th to the 25th day of the cycle, 1 to 2 tablets per day.
