Side Effects

Dydroboon is a progestogen structurally related to progesterone. However, unlike progesterone, it does not induce an increase in temp nor inhibit ovulation and may be preferred over other progestational agents when contraceptive effect is not required. It does not have oestrogenic or androgenic properties.



Monitor closely for loss of vision, proptosis, diplopia, migraine, signs and symptoms of embolic disorders. CVD or renal impairment, epilepsy, asthma, other conditions which may be aggravated by fluid retention. Lactation.


Carbamazepine, griseofulvin, phenobarbital, rifampicin enhances the clearance of progestogens.

Pregnancy Lactation use

From spontaneous surveillance systems to date, there is no evidence that dydrogesterone can not be used during pregnancy.

Dydroboon is excreted in the milk of nursing mothers. A risk to the suckling child cannot be excluded. Dydroboon should not be used during breast-feeding.

There is no evidence that dydrogesterone decreases fertility at therapeutic dose.


Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients. Known or suspected progestogen dependent neoplasms. Undiagnosed vaginal bleeding
