What is Endometrin?

Endometrin, a brand-name prescription drug containing progesterone, is used to aid pregnancy and fertility in women. Endometrin may be prescribed to women early in a pregnancy or to those who have had an embryo implanted or are undergoing assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatment. This medication contains the hormone progesterone, which is needed to maintain a healthy pregnancy. It works by altering the lining of a woman's uterus so it becomes easier for an egg to attach itself. Endometrin is administered directly into the vagina via an applicator.
