Crinone Gel Description
Crinone 8% is a progesterone gel suppository.

Crinone 8% (progesterone gel) is a specially formulated vaginal gel that contains the female hormone progesterone. 

Progesterone is important for ovulation and menstruation. Progesterone causes changes in the lining of the uterus, making it easier for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus at the beginning of pregnancy. Progesterone then helps maintain the pregnancy until the placenta can provide its own hormonal support.

Crinone is used in fertility treatment as part of IVF for women unable to get pregnant due to a lack of natural progesterone in the body.

Unlike injectable progesterone, Crinone is applied into the vagina where it adheres to the vaginal walls and is absorbed directly where it is needed. This form of application avoids the local pain associated with intramuscular injections of progesterone.

Crinone Gel - What's Included
Crinone Gel is supplied in individually sealed applicators. Each applicator is ready to insert into the vagina and the empty applicator should be discarded immediately after application. 
The Difference Between US and European Crinone Gel
Crinone Gel on IVFPharmacy is made by Serono Pharmaceuticals. It is a brand medication, not generic. The drug composition is exactly the same as Crinone Gel in the US but the packaging may vary slightly. Here's how:
US packaging:
Crinone Gel can be purchased per applicator.
European packaging:
Crinone Gel is packaged in boxes of 15 applicators. IVFPharmacy does not sell individual applicators.
