FAQ

What if I'm accidentially exposed to the product?

Altrenogest is readily absorbed from contact with the skin. In addition, this oil based product can penetrate porous gloves. Altrenogest should not penetrate intact rubber or impervious gloves; however, if there is leakage (i.e., pinhole, spillage, etc.), the contaminated area covered by such occlusive materials may have increased absorption. The following measures are recommended in case of accidental exposure. * Skin Exposure: Wash immediately with soap and water. * Eye Exposure: Immediately flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention. * If Swallowed: Do not induce vomiting. OvaMed contains an oil. Call a physician. Vomiting should be supervised by a physician because of possible pulmonary damage via aspiration of the oil base. If possible bring the container and labeling to the physician.
