How to find us!

Medication

Estrofem 2mg/ThromboASS 100mg/Hormonkapseln/Prednisolon 5mg

Please find your daily dosage and the length of application in your stimulation protocol.

It makes no difference if you take your tablets on an empty stomach or with a meal, solely on the day of your oocyte pick-up appointment you should not have any food or drink for at least 6 hours beforehand, that is why you can neglect your daily dosage on that day.

Further information

Please assemble your Suprecur nasal spray with the help of the leaflet provided in the package. Follow your stimulation protocol to know when and what dosage of Suprecur to apply.

The usual dosage is two sprays three times a day. Two sprays means: one into each nostril. Suprecur should be taken at an interval of eight hours, this is best in the morning, at mid-day and in the evening, e.g. at 7 a.m., 3 and 10pm.
