Ginette 35 is a universal medication to prevent a number of organism dysfunctions. Generally, it is used to treat excess amount of androgens. Androgens are a group of male sex hormones, which are produced both by males and females. Still, it can happen that a female organism produces too much of androgens, which causes several problems, such as hirsutism, androgenic alopecia, acne, inflammation, seborrhea or even polycystic ovary syndrome. By the way, Ginette 35 may also be used as a contraceptive, but in a combination with other drugs.
How Ginette 35 Helps Women
The medication consists of synthetic oestrogen which is an alternative to progestogen and is also an antiandrogen. Thus, taking antiandrogen cancels the effects caused by androgen. Oestrogen blocks androgen, so the latter loses its influence on the organism, which means that natural processes in women’s body normalize. So, abnormal hair growth or lost hair stops, the skin loses excess fat and looks good while the ovaries losing unnecessary amount of androgen normalize their work and return to normal ovulation processes. By the way, Ginette 35 provides the effect of contraception, preventing a fertilized egg from implanting and growing.
