You should not use CRINONE 8% (progesterone gel) if you have any disorders involving blockage of your blood vessels, or a history of these disorders, miscarriages, vaginal bleeding that hasn't been diagnosed, liver problems or disease, or known or possible cancer of the breast or genital organs.
You should discontinue use of CRINONE 8% if any symptoms occur that signal a blockage of your blood vessels. There is no evidence that CRINONE 8% will work in preventing miscarriage. Your doctor should examine your breasts and pelvic organs, as well as perform a Pap smear prior to prescribing CRINONE 8%. If you have vaginal bleeding during treatment with CRINONE 8%, your doctor should look for the cause. If you have conditions that cause fluid retention, a history of depression, or diabetes, your doctor should provide special attention to your care while you are using CRINONE 8%.
The most common side effects of CRINONE 8% include breast enlargement, constipation, drowsiness, nausea, headache, and pain in the pubic area.
