As we mentioned in previous articles during the last stage of the menstrual cycle normally a layer of endometriosis lining in the inside of the uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood but instead some of the endometriosis tissues growing somewhere in the body causing endometriosis. Endometriosis also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle by building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. Women with bleeding irregularly may sometime be prescribed to progestogens by their doctor. In this article, we will discuss progestogens and vitamins

Since we all know from previous article, progesterone like medication is used to treat irregular menstruation and improve period pain caused by endometrial implants. But it also caused vitamins imbalance in the women body
1. Vitamin A
Women taking the progestogen pill see small increasing of vitamin A in their body. It is benefit to stop taking any vitamin A or vitamin A rich food to prevent over supplying of this type of vitamin resulting in liver damage such as jaundice. Excessive amounts of Vitamin A over long periods can lead to toxicity.

2. Vitamin B1
Progentogen pill decreases the absorption of vitamin B1 in the body, therefore taking extra vitamin B1 while taking the pill or injection will help to improve digestive system as well as balancing the vitamin B1 deficiency. Caffeine and alcohol also contribute to vitamin B1 deficiency.

3. Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6 deficiency for women taking progestogen like medicine causes wide range of body malfunction. Long term intake of vitamin B6 may be toxic to your body

4. Vitamin B12
Study shows that women taking the progestogen pill or injection of progestogen see significant decreases of serum vitamin B12 thereby, evaluation of the vitamin B12 status is necessary if treatment is to be given for periods of longer than 3 months.

5. Vitamin D
Intake of progestogen or injection of progentogen causes the temporary of menopause state resulting of Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D not only is necessary for the uptake of calcium in the intestines and its deposition in the bones, it also is needed to relax the nervous system and reduce period pain.

6. Folic acid
Folic acide is essential for cell division and DNA duplication. women intake of progestogen like medicine causes the depletion of folic acid as resulting of inability of digestive absorption.

7. Vitamin C
Vitamin C can be converted from folic acid but the production is not enough for our body needs. It is vital for women who take the progestogen like medicine because it helps to improve digestive problem such as increasing absorption of folic acid and other minerals and vitamins.

8. Vitamin E
Beside acting as a strong antioxidant, it helps to reduce the side effects of premenstrual symptoms as well as hormone balancing.
