    About Tsiproterona

    At increase of products of androgens at women signs of defenemination and even a masculinization are noted. The "erased" forms of a giperandrogeniya are the reason of infertility, anovulation, an amenorrhea, not incubation of pregnancy, a uterus hypoplasia.

    External manifestations of a giperandrogeniya are also unpleasant for the woman — fat seborrhea, an alopecia, an acne, a hirsutism of different degree of manifestation. At such states this drug to women is appointed and at some diseases at men. In clinical practice it is considered the most effective and safe.

    Judging by responses, it is the most frequent in gynecologic practice, at easy forms of a hirsutism Diane-35 combining two active agents (see above) was applied and it was appointed within 9 - 12 months. At an acne and an alopecia the effect was noted quicker — in 6 months.

    • "… Drug obviously suspended a hair loss and there was obvious growth new, but I hard transferred its reception — weight in right hypochondrium, an increase in weight, decrease in a libido".
    • "… Accepted DIANE-35 1 year – as a result a smart head of hear".

    At the expressed androgenization the effect was practically absent and to treatment a tsiproterona acetate in the form of drug Androkur or Tsiproteron Teva was in addition appointed. Such combination therapy was more effective. This drug was accepted by also some women at a polycystosis of ovaries.
