Progesterone is a female hormone naturally secreted by the ovary. Progesterone plays a key role in supporting pregnancy, regulating the menstrual cycle and protecting the endometrium against hyperplasia. It stimulates growth of uterus, causes maturation of endometrium and inhibits uterine contractions. Decreased Progesterone levels are associated with intrauterine death, premature labor, and threatened abortion. PREGTAIN contains Progesterone in Micronized form which results in increased bioavailability and helps to achieve adequate plasma concentration of Progesterone. Thus, PREGTAIN helps in successful pregnancy outcome.
