What Are Cuerpo Amarillo Fuerte Injections?

Cuerpo Amarillo Fuerte is the brand name of an injectable dose of the hormone progesterone. The drug is manufactured in Mexico. It is indicated for treatment of amenorrhea, treating abnormal uterine bleeding and for threatened miscarriage, according to Farmacia Del Niño.

Each dose of Cuerpo Amarillo Fuerte consists of 2 milliliters containing 50 milligrams of progesterone. It is intended to be administered by intramuscular injection once per day, states Farmacia Del Niño.

Weekly progesterone injections are often administered to women with a history of preterm labor during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy in an effort to prevent preterm labor and delivery, reports WebMD.

Progesterone injections can sometimes impair fertility when administered to nonpregnant women, according to WebMD. Some commercially available contraceptives, such as Depo-Provera, are long-acting injections of progesterone-like hormones.
