Frontline Female Medical Staff Take Progesterone to Delay Menstruation

Recently, some netizens said that frontline anti-epidemic female medical staff in Wuhan were required to take progesterone to delay menstruation, which has caused discussions.

The reporter learned that, including the obstetrics and gynecology hospital affiliated to Fudan University, there are indeed hospitals that prepare progesterone for frontline women’s medical care to delay menstruation. The staff of the Publicity Department of Fudan University’s Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital said that the use of progesterone was “completely voluntary”.

Female medical staff

On February 9th, Huashan Hospital affiliated to Fudan University assembled 214 medical staff to form a medical team in Hubei, including 170″ female soldiers “, accounting for 79% of the total.

According to the article, 200 bottles of progesterone and 10 boxes of physiological pants donated by the Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital affiliated to Fudan University will be shipped to Wuhan along with other accompanying materials. “Postponing the special period for female players!”

In response to the question whether frontline women’s health care is voluntary or forced to use progesterone, a staff member of the Publicity Department of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital affiliated to Fudan University told reporters that providing progesterone to frontline women’s health care is to facilitate the adjustment of the physiological cycle when needed.

The staff member said whether the use of progesterone by female medical staff to postpone the physiological period was “completely voluntary”. “We certainly won’t force them to eat, and prepare this just in case, to make it easier for women in need.”

The staff of the Shanghai Women’s Federation’s 12338 Women’s and Children’s Rights Protection Hotline told reporters that the Women’s Federation has not received any related consultations or complaints, and has not found any cases of forcing women’s medical care to take progesterone to delay the physiological period.

The staff member said that “whether or not progesterone is used to postpone menstrual period” must be a voluntary action, no group or individual can force it. The Shanghai Women’s Federation will continue to pay attention to this issue. If forced use is found, it will definitely be involved in the investigation.

What is progesterone?

Zheng Zhang, a pharmacist in charge of the Pharmacy Department of Beijing Chaoyang Hospital of Capital Medical University, introduced that progesterone is a natural progestin secreted by the ovarian corpus luteum. In addition to natural progesterone, synthetic progesterone is also used for treatment.

One of the effects of progesterone is to regulate the menstrual cycle, which is often used to delay menstruation.

However, there are some adverse reactions when using progesterone. Zhang pointed out that the main adverse reactions were headache, dizziness, nausea, depression, breast tenderness, etc. Long-term use may cause endometrial atrophy, decrease in menstrual flow, abnormal liver function, and vaginal fungal infection.
