Swelling of the swab

Waiting for the baby brings a lot of joy to the futuremother. But there are cases when it is full to feel this happiness and to become pregnant does not give to the woman its organism. It's about endometrial - an important hormone-sensitive tissue of the uterus. It is the endometrium that becomes the site of the introduction of crumbs, here the embryo grows and develops.

Endometrium in normal state supportedhormone estrogen, the main function of which is to prepare the inner mucous membrane of the uterus for the adoption of a fertilized egg. If the endometrium is too thin, then the egg can not "attach" to the uterus - and pregnancy does not occur. This phenomenon doctors call hypoplasia and detect with ultrasound. Fortunately, hypoplasia is not a verdict: the thickness of the endometrium can be increased with the help of drugs that fill the hormone deficiency of estrogens.

One such medication is the Divigel. Its main active ingredient is synthetic estradiol, identical in biological and chemical properties to the natural female hormone. Estradiol is responsible for the development and functioning of female genital organs and mammary glands, the regularity of the menstrual cycle, the synthesis of certain proteins, the reduction of cholesterol in the blood, the normal functioning of the organs of the cardiovascular system.

When planning pregnancy, doctors appoint"Divigel" only in the case if a thin endometrium is diagnosed. After all, if a woman is found to have hypoplasia, a fertilized egg can not attach to the uterus. With an endometrium thickness of less than 5 mm, the probability of becoming pregnant is only 1%.

The endometrium "thickens" under the influence of femalehormones of estrogens. They are produced by follicles at the end of the early follicular phase of the menstrual cycle. If the level of estrogen in the body increases, then the endometrium grows. But in some cases, the maturation of the dominant follicle is disturbed and this becomes a prerequisite for hypoplasia. Endometrium simply nowhere to take.

To stimulate the growth of the endometrium, doctorsprescribe the use of an artificial analogue of the hormone estrogen. "Divigel" increases the amount of estrogens, which in turn leads to a thickening of the endometrium. Also, the "Divigel" stimulates the development of the vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes, ducts of the mammary glands, promotes active growth and closure of the epiphyses of long tubular bones. The drug raises the level of concentration in the blood of iron, copper, thyroxine, high-density lipoproteins, reduces the amount of cholesterol.

This drug can be taken only if doctors diagnose you have hypoplasia. Do not self-medicate and do not take "Divigel" without consulting and doctor's advice.
