Basic Information on Delestrogen

When and How to Use It

Some general considerations for when and how to use Delestrogen include the following:
 
  • Delestrogen is injected into a muscle, usually once a month (although it can be used as frequently as once a week for prostate cancer).
  • Your healthcare provider will administer the injection, as it must be injected into the gluteal muscle (a muscle of the buttocks).
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
     

Dosing Information

The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The medical condition being treated
  • How you respond to Delestrogen
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

Side Effects of Delestrogen

As with any medicine, Delestrogen can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
 
If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
 
Common side effects of estrogen medications (such as Delestrogen) include but are not limited to:
 
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Breast pain
  • Headaches
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain)
  • Vaginal bleeding.
