How do I calculate how much to use?

If you have used Progynon Depot 10mg/ml before, you need to know how to calculate an equivalent dosage of Estradiol Valerate 100mg/5ml.

100mg/5ml is equal to 20mg/ml. Therefore, a 10mg dose (equivalent to a whole vial of Progynon Depot 10mg/ml) will be 0.5ml.

Here is the math to obtain a 10mg dose: 10/20 = 0.5ml of 100mg/5ml
