General Information

What is Utovlan?

Utovlan is a medication that contains the active ingredient norethisterone, a synthetic form of progesterone, a hormone that occurs naturally in the body. It's primarily used to treat menstrual disorders like heavy, painful, irregular, or absent periods.

What do Utovlan tablets do?

Utovlan tablets work by mimicking the actions of progesterone in the body. Doing so helps regulate the menstrual cycle and is used to delay periods, reduce heavy menstrual bleeding, and manage pain associated with endometriosis.

How does Utovlan work?

Utovlan, or norethisterone, works by mimicking the effects of one's natural progesterone. When taken, it alters the lining of the womb to prevent it from shedding and causing a period. The medication is often used to delay periods for a certain amount of time.

Dosage & Usage

For period delay, Utovlan must ideally be started 3 days before the expected start of one's period. However, the exact time it takes for Utovlan to work varies depending on the individual and the condition being treated. 

Can Utovlan stop a period once started?

No, Utovlan is typically used to delay a period, and it's most effective when started a few days before a period is due. If one's period has already started, Utovlan might not be able to stop it.

How many Utovlan tablets should I take a day?

The usual dose of Utovlan for period delay is one 5mg tablet three times a day, starting 3 days before a period is due. However, always follow the instructions given by a doctor or pharmacist.

Trimethoprim is commonly prescribed to treat urinary tract infections, a prevalent health issue affecting the urinary system. This medication is effective against a range of bacterial infections, notably those affecting the urinary and respiratory tracts. Trimethoprim works by targeting and inhibiting a substance called folic acid, which is crucial for the growth and reproduction of bacteria. By disrupting the production of folic acid, Trimethoprim hinders the development of bacteria, thereby helping to clear infections.

While it's primarily known for its effectiveness in treating urinary tract infections, it's also used for certain types of respiratory tract infections. However, like any medication, the safety of Trimethoprim for an individual depends on various factors including their overall health, other medications they may be taking, and their specific medical history. It's important to consult a healthcare professional to determine if Trimethoprim is a safe and appropriate treatment option.

We recommend you read the patient information leaflet for this product thoroughly before taking the treatment. This is essential to understanding any interactions that can occur and to take the medication safely.

Generally, the effects of Utovlan may be noticeable within the time frame outlined by the prescribing pharmacist. It is important to follow the prescribed dosage and instructions provided by your healthcare professional, and to consult them if you have any concerns or questions about the medication's efficacy or possible side effects.

Additional Information on Trimethoprim 200mg

Trimethoprim 200mg, the usual dose, is a potent antibiotic primarily used to treat bacterial infections, particularly those related to urinary infections such as cystitis. This medication operates by inhibiting the bacterial production of a vital substance, folic acid, thereby preventing the growth and spread of the infection.

While it is highly effective in managing urinary tract infections, it's essential to be aware of certain precautions. Individuals with severe liver problems, or blood disorders, should consult their healthcare provider before using Trimethoprim, as it may not be the safest option for them. Additionally, it's a common misconception that cranberry juice can treat urine infections; however, while it may help alleviate cystitis symptoms by preventing bacteria from adhering to the bladder walls, it should not replace medical treatment with antibiotics like Trimethoprim.

As with any antibiotic, it's crucial to complete the full course as prescribed, even if symptoms improve, to effectively treat bacterial infections and prevent antibiotic resistance.
