However, TPT is not the first choice for treating kidney disease.

It is mainly because it has adverse effects on gonads and menstruation.

The study found that women who took the drug for more than 3 to 6 months had menstrual disorders, menolipsis and other adverse reactions, but after stopping taking the drug for a period of time, period will return to normal.

Therefore, for teenagers under 18 years of age who are in developing period, it is not recommended to apply TPT. For those who are already adults, even if they can use, the duration should not exceed 6-9 months. Of course, if you have had children or do not worry about fertility problems, it is unnecessary to consider these problems.
