Instructions to the drug Divigel

Gynecological diseases are most often accompanied by dysfunction of the ovaries. With the help of these organs, special female sex hormones are released into the blood, in particular, estrogen. Therefore, it is important for women to monitor the state of their reproductive system.

If ovarian function is somehow impaired, the estrogen ceases to thicken and maintain the inner lining of the uterus, resulting in endometrial hyperplasia. Because of these changes, the menstrual cycle disappears or becomes extremely irregular. Other female diseases (infertility, polycystic ovarian disease, uterine bleeding) may also occur.

Most often, experts prescribe the use of Divigel, if there was a significant lack of estrogen or pathological menopause. Recently, gynecologists have been actively practicing the use of this medicine in preparation for fertilization. It is used both in natural pregnancy and in vitro fertilization (IVF).

If a woman had problems with the cycle due to the incorrect production of hormones, then most often the monthly periods when taking Divigel are normalized after the end of the use of the drug.

Divigel is available in the form of a 0.1% gel by the Finnish manufacturer Orion Corporation. For convenient use it is also produced in the form of small sachets. The gel contains the following components:

  • active substance - estradiol hemihydrate,
  • trolamine,
  • ethanol 96%,
  • Carbopol 974 P,
  • propylene glycol,
  • purified water.

The drug belongs to the pharmacological group of hormones (sex glands), which are used in the treatment of varying degrees of pathologies associated with the sexual sphere.

Indications for use of the gel

Disruption of the hormonal system often does not depend on age. Gynecological problems can occur even in young girls who are not sexually active.

The hormonal system is influenced by ecology, unhealthy diet, alcohol abuse, the presence of excess weight and low-level lifestyle. But at the same time, disturbances in the reproductive system and the lack of hormones can result from:

  • infectious diseases
  • polycystic ovaries,
  • under-treated female diseases
  • taking the wrong hormonal contraceptives or immunosuppressants,
  • treatment with antitumor agents,
  • autoimmune diseases.

Most often, gynecologists, in order to detect estrogen deficiency, refer the patient to the delivery of a hormonal panel. With a lack of the hormone estrogen, women or girls experience such abnormalities as an irregular menstrual cycle or its complete cessation. In addition to problems with menstruation, the patient has other complaints:

  • excessive dryness of the vaginal mucosa,
  • infertility,
  • lack of calcium in the body
  • excessive sweating or hot flashes,
  • depression, apathy, drowsiness, emotional instability,
  • sleep disturbance,
  • dizziness, decreased performance and feeling unwell.

Finding such abnormalities, doctors prescribe a complex therapy, which includes treatment with Divigel. In no case can you prescribe a drug yourself, because only a doctor can prescribe the correct and effective treatment regimen. Indications for use of Divigel are the following states:

  • the presence of diseases and symptoms associated with estrogen deficiency,
  • lack of hormones in the blood during natural menopause,
  • artificially induced menopause
  • for the prevention of primary osteoporosis.

In addition, Divigel can be prescribed by doctors when planning for IVF or conception in a natural way. In these cases, the patient should be under the supervision of specialists.

Designate a gel for planning pregnancy only if hypoplasia is found in a woman. With this pathology, the inner layer of the uterus is too thin structure, due to which there are problems with the attachment of a fertilized egg.

Regardless of which form of Divigel is used when planning conception, it is necessary to be regularly examined by a doctor. Improper use of the drug can cause severe uterine bleeding.

Method of application and dose

Most often Divigel prescribed to patients who have a long and cyclical treatment. Depending on the type of female disease, the doctor himself selects the duration of the dose and the dose, paying attention to the individual characteristics of the woman's body.

Most often, gynecologists prescribe medication 0.5-1.5 mg per day. According to the results of treatment in the future, the dose can be adjusted. Apply the prescribed dose of the gel should be once a day on the pre-cleansed skin. The working area is the lower part of the anterior abdominal wall. For better effect, Divigel can be applied alternately on the right and left buttocks.

The active area should not exceed 1-2 palm. It is strictly forbidden to apply the gel on an irritated surface or skin with rashes and open wounds. It is not recommended to use the product on the face, mammary glands, in the genital area.

After application, it is not necessary to rush to put on clothes - the gel should naturally be absorbed into the skin. It is necessary to wait 5-10 minutes for the skin to become dry.

You need to ensure that the gel does not get into the eyes. or on other mucous membranes. After application, you must thoroughly wash your hands, and if Divigel accidentally gets into your eyes, you should also rinse them thoroughly and drip them with eye drops.

Gynecologists recommend applying the gel at the same time of day. In a situation where the procedure was missed, it is necessary to apply the gel as soon as possible, but no later than twelve hours from the scheduled time. If more time has passed, the manipulation should be postponed until the next scheduled.

When the scheme is incorrectly prescribed by the doctor or if the remedy is used irregularly, the woman may have uterine bleeding that resembles menstruation.

If Divigel is prescribed to a woman for the treatment of postmenopausal symptoms, it is necessary to use the most minimal effective dose of the drug. The duration of treatment should be as short as possible.

Contraindications and adverse reactions

As with any therapeutic medicine, Divigel has contraindications and side effects that need to be considered when starting to start a course of treatment.

It is not necessary to self-medicate, as Divigel belongs to the group of hormonal drugs, which, if improperly treated, can cause irreparable harm to the body. The use of the gel is contraindicated in the presence of:

  • breast cancer
  • endometrial hyperplasia, which was not treated with medication,
  • acute liver or kidney disease,
  • vaginal bleeding of unknown etiology,
  • endometrial cancer or other estrogen-dependent neoplasms,
  • intolerance included in the composition of the gel substances
  • porphyrias,
  • vein thromboembolic disease,
  • acute arterial thromboembolism (myocardial infarction, angina).

If a specialist has written the correct and suitable gel treatment regimen, there are almost no adverse reactions. If they occur in a woman, then most often they pass instantly without the need for the abolition of the remedy.

Studies of Finnish manufacturers Orion Corporation show that most side effects can occur in the first months of treatment.

Reviews and practice of using the gel show that women very often complain of breast swelling, swelling and headache. In rare cases, patients may experience stomach cramps, weight gain, nausea, skin rash, increased blood pressure, and menstruation disorders.

Effect on the menstrual cycle

Divigel and monthly are inextricably linked. The drug with the correct treatment regimen can not harm menstruation. On the contrary, it makes it regular and regular. Often gel prescribed to women in cycles before the onset of menopause. It helps mimic natural hormone surges and estrogen levels.

For women with gynecological problems, Divigel helps to improve the condition of the endometrium, as a result of which the likelihood of a long-awaited pregnancy increases several times.

It is better to start treatment at the end of the menstrual cycle, since the components that are part of it stimulate the growth of the endometrium. If a woman has no health problems, during menstruation, the uterus layer is rejected, that is, there is no need for its thickening. That is why ideally it is necessary to begin treatment after the end of critical days.

A scanty monthly and irregular cycle after Divigel’s treatment is practically not observed. During its active use, menstruation, on the contrary, returns to normal and becomes regular. After the start of treatment with gel, the bleeding may change color and duration, but over time they also normalize.

There are cases that after undergoing a course of treatment, periods continue to be irregular and scarce. This state can be observed from two to three cycles. This occurs most often due to improperly selected dosage. It is also possible that the woman has a gestagen deficiency.

If, after the treatment regimen with medicinal gel, the menstrual periods disappear, then it is rational to make a home pregnancy test and consult a gynecologist. Such symptoms may indicate that the treatment was successful and the long-awaited fertilization occurred (if the gel was used for endometrial hypoplasia). In these cases, you can calm down, as Divigel coped with the task and helped the fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. When confirming pregnancy, the use of the gel must be discontinued.

If, after the course of treatment, the periods have disappeared or ceased, the woman should always consult with a doctor.

Why prescribe gel

With many gynecological diseases in the woman’s body, ovarian function is impaired or terminated. These organs not only contain developing eggs, but also release sex hormones into the blood, in particular, estrogen. It contains female sex hormones, which, upon absorption, begin to act on the ovaries, uterus, and mammary glands.

Estrogens cause an increase in the thickness of the inner lining of the uterus - the endometrium. Cyclic changes in the concentration of these hormones in the blood lead to menstruation. With the suppression of the production of estrogen in the ovaries, the formation of the functional layer of the endometrium is disturbed, the work of the genital organs and the nature of menstrual bleeding change. In reproductive age, infertility is possible, in perimenopause - the appearance of symptoms of pathological menopause.

Conditions causing hormone deficiency in young women:

  • genetic abnormalities
  • polycystic ovaries,
  • surgery on the intestines, internal genitals,
  • taking anti-tumor drugs, immunosuppressants,
  • postponed radiation therapy
  • autoimmune processes in which the body begins to fight with its own cells, as with alien.

In many patients, the cause of estrogen deficiency remains unexplained. They have the following symptoms:

  • cessation of menstruation,
  • infertility,
  • hot flashes, excessive sweating, sleep disturbance, emotional instability, feeling unwell, decreased performance, memory loss,
  • possible bone fractures, tooth loss,
  • probable dryness in the vagina, pain during sexual contact.

When such signs appear, due to a lack of estrogen, gynecologists prescribe replacement therapy, in particular, Divigel. The regimen for women who have preserved menstrual function is prescribed by a doctor. Usually, a remedy is prescribed with a cycle from the first day after the end of menstruation (5 day of the cycle) for 3 weeks, after ovulation (14 day of the cycle) it is necessary to add drugs of gestagens. The regimen may be different, it depends on the clinical situation. Self-medication is not recommended.

Rules of application

The drug is available in bags. 1 packet contains 1 mg of estradiol. However, the gynecologist, depending on the severity of symptoms of estrogen deficiency, may recommend an initial dose of 0.5 mg (half sachet) to 1.5 - 2 mg per day.

The gel should be applied to clean skin, without intensive rubbing, once a day, at the same time. The contents of the package are squeezed out on the palm and grease the skin on different areas: buttocks, lower abdomen, shoulders, forearms, lower back. Daily should change the place of application of the gel. After application, you must wait until the medicine is absorbed and dries. You can wash your skin in an hour. Do not apply the gel on damaged skin, face, mammary glands.

Divigel during menstruation is not recommended.

If a woman misses taking the medicine, but no more than 12 hours have passed from the right moment, you should immediately apply it on the skin. The following application is carried out the next day. If more than 12 hours have passed, the medicine is not used on the current day, and the next day it is used as usual.

Apply the gel regularly. If the patient constantly forgets to use it, then with such a reception Divigel will begin menstruation, more precisely, breakthrough bleeding caused by hormonal disruption. In this case, you should stop using the medicine and consult a gynecologist.

Divigel and the effect on the menstrual cycle

In women before menopause, medication is prescribed in cycles to mimic the natural fluctuation of estrogen levels. In the usual dosage, it does not suppress ovulation, but on the contrary, normalizes it. With its use, the endometrium becomes thicker, the probability of pregnancy increases.

If before the start of the administration of the divigel agent, the period began, you should postpone its use until the end of the bleeding The fact is that the medicine stimulates the growth of the endometrium, and during menstruation this layer of the uterus is rejected, and there is no need for its thickening.

Scanty periods after divigel are uncharacteristic. Against the background of his reception, the cycle should be normalized, the duration of menstruation will be about 5 days. However, at the beginning of treatment, the nature of the bleeding may change - it is likely that they will become less or more intense, lighter, shorter or longer than before. If after the use of Divigel, scanty periods persist for more than 2 to 3 cycles, this is probably due to insufficient dosage. In addition, there may be a shortage of progestogens that need to be taken in the second half of the phase.

If the patient has no monthly after divigel, you need to do a home pregnancy test and consult a gynecologist. Probably fertilization occurred. At this time, the application of the gel is not recommended. You should also do if a woman, after beginning to smear divigel, immediately ended monthly.

Кроме того, отсутствие менструации может возникнуть при гормональном сбое. Usually, after the cancellation of hormones, regular bleeding is resumed.

We recommend reading the article about Duphaston to normalize the cycle. From it you will learn about the principle of the drug on the woman's body, indications for use, regimens, contraindications and side effects.

Divigel when planning pregnancy

Women with preserved menstruation medication is often prescribed to prepare for pregnancy. This applies to both the natural process and in vitro fertilization. The cyclical action of the gel on the endometrium helps the fertilized egg to attach to the wall of the uterus.

In preparation for pregnancy, the drug is used with regular ultrasound monitoring of follicle size and endometrial thickness. It is desirable that during treatment on the 14th day of the cycle, the endometrium was at least 7 mm, and preferably from 9 to 13 mm. The diameter of the follicle should be 21 mm. If, against the background of treatment, such indicators cannot be achieved, it is necessary to revise the regimen. You may need to increase the dose of hormones.

Thus, the drug, affecting the hormones of a woman, can cause changes in the nature of menstruation. For any deviations from the norm should consult a gynecologist. Changes in the nature of menstruation or its termination may occur normally at the beginning of treatment, be a sign of irregular use, occur in endometrial pathology, or be a symptom of the onset of pregnancy.

How does Divigel

The main component of Divigel is an artificial analogue of the female hormone - estradiol. This drug is prescribed if the body itself does not cope with the natural production of the hormone estrogen. Then this very analogue, getting into the body, begins to independently exert an estrogenic effect on the female genitals.

This happens as follows: through the skin, the drug penetrates into the body and begins to affect the patient's genitals. When menstruation is delayed, estradiol irritates the inner layer of the uterus - the endometrium. Under this influence, the layer is rejected and leaves the body in the form of the usual menstruation.

This is what concerns the restoration of the monthly cycle. However, the drug is also prescribed during the ovulation process and already directly pregnant. During menstruation, sex hormones can prevent the release of dead eggs from the ovaries. In this case, Divigel simply stimulates the premature ovulation process to save a woman from amenorrhea and all the signs that accompany her. Also, prematurely induced ovulation reduces the chances of developing infertility, since the hormones produced by estrogen contribute to the growth of the inner layer of the uterus. Then, in turn, the extended endometrium helps the implantation of the ovum for the safe development of pregnancy.

Indications Divigel

Divigel can be used to treat complex diseases of the female reproductive system or for systemic prophylaxis, but only if the following indications are observed:

  • endometrium not less than 0.5 cm thick,
  • no menstruation,
  • with an irregular cycle of menstruation,
  • the presence of disorders in the production of the hormone estrogen,
  • no ovulation
  • the presence of menopausal syndrome in age and postoperative menopause,
  • need for infertility treatment.

In addition, Divigel acts not only on the hormones and the work of the female genitals, but also on the rest of her body systems. Thus, due to prevention by Divigel, the blood in the body is enriched with elements such as copper, iron and thyroxin. The level of cholesterol caused by hormonal disruption also decreases, the habitual work of the mammary glands and the cardiovascular system as a whole are restored.

Side effects of the drug

Proper use of the medication is very important during treatment. Since the effect of Divigel has not only on the sexual and hormonal systems of a woman, but also on all others, the consequences after its use can be very different. Therefore, it is important to follow all the instructions of the doctor, from the dose of the gel to the time it is applied to the skin.

This is explained by the fact that the drug activates the work of the cardiovascular system, which can lead to an increase in blood pressure and activity of blood clotting. Because of what headaches and low temperature are observed (37–37.9 o C).

On the package a list with the most neglected forms of side effects is also attached to the medication, namely:

  • the presence of hyperplasia or endometrial tumor,
  • increased libido,
  • mammary glands become more rough to the touch,
  • weight gain
  • glucose intolerance,
  • gagging or nausea,
  • gas concentration in the intestines
  • an allergic skin reaction to the drug is accompanied by a rash, redness or itching,
  • bouts of porphyria,
  • chloasma
  • change in curvature of the cornea,
  • melasma (hyperpigmentation of the skin).

Side effects from long-term use of the drug also affect the female genital organs. The first thing that pharmacists and doctors warn about is uterine bleeding between two cycles of menstruation. However, this effect is to be feared only in the case of uncontrolled use of the drug or non-compliance with one of the points of contraindications.

Contraindications Divigel

Hormonal drugs, as Divigel, act on each organism individually. Someone may have side effects, and someone - no. But what you really need to know before you start using the drug is about the list of contraindications.

People with the following pathologies and diseases should in no case use Divigel:

  1. The presence of a malignant or benign tumor on the genitals or mammary glands.
  2. The same applies to tumors of any kind in the region of the pituitary or liver.
  3. If the cause of frequent vaginal bleeding has not been established.
  4. The presence of thickened walls of the endometrium.
  5. The presence of inflammation in the area of ​​the fallopian tubes or ovaries.
  6. Cholestasis.
  7. Allergy and other diseases of the skin.
  8. Suspicion (or presence in the past) of heart problems or a tendency to stroke.
  9. The presence of diabetes.
  10. Hemoglobinosis.
  11. Dyslipidemia.

During the use of the gel, it is necessary to be cautious for women suffering from endometriosis, dishormonal disorder of the mammary gland, advanced bronchial asthma, nervous diseases, seizures, convulsions with loss of consciousness, persistent swelling of the extremities, as well as malfunction of the heart, liver or kidneys.

Opinion of doctors

Most gynecologists say that Divigel is the right remedy for infertility for young women. The only thing that everyone is clarifying is that the use of the drug in order to become pregnant should be strictly supervised and monitored by a female doctor, because the list of contraindications and side effects is too extensive.

So in his introductory lecture, Boris Kamenetsky, a gynecologist, notes that if the pregnancy does not proceed even after the fifth cycle, this does not mean infertility. So, start to sound the alarm ahead of time is not worth it.

In addition to the doctors, the women themselves, who have tested the drug on themselves, note that in most cases Divigel alone is not enough, which is why doctors often have to experiment with doses for their patients in order to tailor the treatment course exclusively to the individual characteristics of the future mother.

If necessary, other analog devices such as Proginova, Klostilbegit, Utrogestan or Duphaston can be assigned after Divigel. This is done in order to avoid the body getting used to a certain type of drug and thereby increase the effectiveness of treatment.

Divigel is a fairly strong hormonal remedy that not everyone can take. It has a wide range of contraindications and side effects.

Due to the fact that the drug has sufficiently powerful properties, its use must be constantly monitored by the attending physician. And for those who use Divigel not as a treatment, but for prophylaxis, the following recommendations should be followed:

  • Divigel is strictly prohibited during menstruation,
  • it is advisable to apply the gel to different places at the same time,
  • do not apply the drug to damaged skin,
  • constantly monitor their own well-being, and in the case of the first side effects to run to the doctor.

The effectiveness of the hormone divigel is regarded by doctors as suitable in 4 out of 5 cases, and therefore it is the most popular among doctors and patients among all other analogues.

I can only say that duphaston is taken strictly after ovulation, and not just for some d. Do you ovulate before 16 d.ts.? And so - one cycle is not an indicator, what could be. Your cycles are not regular?

The cycle is 30-34 days usually. At the expense of what number was ovulation I can not say, the test did not do and BT did not measure, I was prescribed such a scheme for three cycles. I called the doctor, she said that in this cycle she did not start to drink anything for 10 d. I’ll look at her foliculometry and see what happened.

Is the loop broken? Delay? Delay and negative test? What to do and how to "cause monthly"? My experience is "endometrial extension". RESULTS BEFORE AND AFTER Divigel application

Good day to all!

If you are looking for the answer to the question "what to do with the delay?"or" how to be if the monthly does not come? "and you exclude pregnancy, then I think my review will be useful.

Faced with the problem of irregularities of the cycle, and after his disappearance completely, I went to the gynecologist and endocrinologist. Having examined me, the doctor stated a hormonal failure and sent me to an ultrasound to determine the thickness of the endometrium and look at the work of the ovaries.

After the ultrasound, it turned out that my endometrium was “grown up” as for approximately 5–6 days of the cycle, and in fact it was 43.

The doctor appointed a "call monthly" scheme: (to be tested for hormones)

Divigel - 2 times a day, 1 bag - 7 days. Next, control the endometrium on the ultrasound. And with an m-echo of 8 mm or more, the reception of duphaston, 2 tablets each, is 10 days.

Title: Divigel

Active substance :estradiol

Price:650 rubles.

Release form : gel in individual mini-bags. (I have a dosage of 1 g)


Description of the drug.

The drug is in cardboard box. Inside there is a huge liner with detailed instructions, as well as divigel itself in individual sachets, with a dosage of 1 g. I know that 0.5 g is also produced

Hormone replacement therapy for symptoms of estrogen deficiency, treatment of menopausal syndrome associated with natural or artificial menopause, developed as a result of surgical intervention.

The gel itself is medium consistency product. It is rather watery, but at the same time "sticky", the structure of the gel is felt. The drug smells quite alcohol. Absolutely transparent colors does not have.

Act. The results of the ultrasound before and after application.

I was assigned to rub the gel in one sachet 2 times a day. The manual says that it should be done on such areas as the forearm, lower abdomen, buttocks, shoulders. Zones need to alternate every day. At the reception, the doctor also noted to me that you need to rub divigel in a place where we have thin skin, for example, the inner side of the thighs.

When applied, a pleasant chill is felt. After applying, it is worth holding the open area of ​​the gel a little so that it is completely absorbed and does not stain the clothes. Lack literally minutes 5.

By the way Apply the drug to the area no more than your palm.

I smeared divigel in the morning and before bedtime. Zones changed every day.

The drug has its own side effects.

Symptoms: pains in the mammary glands or in the pelvic region, abdominal distention, anxiety, irritability, nausea, vomiting, in some cases metrorrhagia.

I did not suffer from pain in the chest, pelvic region, problems with bloating, vomiting. But a heightened sense of anxiety appeared on day 3. Plus, it seems to me, the appetite has increased. I began to eat more and more.

I applied Divigel for a total of 9 days. The first 7 days for 1 sachet, then after the ultrasound already for 1 sachet two more days.

After stopping use, all adverse symptoms disappeared.

Here are the results of ultrasound. As you can see, before using the digel, I came with an endometrium of 5.6 mm.

After 7 days of admission, it has grown to 7.7 mm. T he he grew up0.3 mm per day. Plus, a dominant follicle appeared. But because I did not plan a pregnancy, I was not so important.

After that, the ultrasound doctor said another 2-3 days to rub in the bag and you can begin receiving duphaston.

Conclusion :I believe that the drug with its main task coped perfectly. Не могу судить о том, как он работает при планировании беременности, т.к применяю для другого назначения. Но если вам нужно нарастить эндометрий, нужно "вызвать месячные", то дивигель - это хороший препарат.

Из минусов It is possible to note a rather high cost, but as you know, this is a serious drug related to hormones. And plus, I had side effects, though not fully.

If Divigel was assigned to you as a doctor, then use it only according to the scheme you have been prescribed. And self-medicating is very dangerous, because it concerns hormonal background.

I hope my review was helpful to you.

Indications for use of Divigel

The hormonal system of a woman is subject to different fluctuations due to external or internal circumstances. For the correction of hormone levels, as well as for replacement therapy in conditions where the own are no longer produced (for example, in menopause or after removal of the ovaries), analogs of natural hormones are used.

Divigel - a drug based on estrogen, presented in the form of a gel for skin application. This is a convenient form that is used in many clinical situations.

The active ingredient of Divigel, estradiol hemihydrate, penetrates the skin, enters the bloodstream and acts as natural hormones, binding to sensitive cells (receptors).

How does the drug for menstruation cycle

Estrogens are the main female hormones. They determine the presence of secondary sexual characteristics - “female figure”, such as hair distribution, voice timbre, sexuality. Their level is maximum in the first phase of the cycle.

In the inner layer of the uterus to estrogen there are many receptors, interacting with which the growth of the functional layer occurs. It is necessary for the normal implantation process - the insertion of the ovum into the wall of the uterus. If the functional layer is thin or poorly supplied with blood, the likelihood of miscarriage, frozen, pathology of the placenta increases.

Divigel, working as an analogue of natural estrogens, is responsible for the intensive growth of the endometrium in the uterus. After that, the second phase is its rejection, if the pregnancy has not occurred. Therefore, at Divigel's intake for a woman, a slight increase in the volume of menstrual flow is possible. The use of the gel often leads to the normalization of the menstrual cycle.

If a woman is in menopause and Divigel is prescribed to her, slight spotting of a smearing character is allowed. However, in this case, a control ultrasound examination is necessary to exclude more serious formations in the uterine cavity.

If a woman continues to have poor menstruation, you may need to change the dosage of the drug or supplement / replace it.

The lack of menstruation in women of reproductive age in the first place should suggest the idea of ​​a probable pregnancy.
