Accession Number

Steroidal compounds related to PROGESTERONE, the major mammalian progestational hormone. Progesterone congeners include important progesterone precursors in the biosynthetic pathways, metabolites, derivatives, and synthetic steroids with progestational activities.

DrugDrug Description
PregnenoloneA 21-carbon steroid, derived from cholesterol and found in steroid hormone-producing tissues. Pregnenolone is the precursor to gonadal steroid hormones and the adrenal corticosteroids.
Hydroxyprogesterone caproateA synthetic progestin used for the prevention of spontaneous preterm births in singleton pregnancies in women who have previously had a spontaneous preterm birth.
AltrenogestAltrenogest, also known as allyltrenbolone, is a steroidal progestin that is widely used in veterinary medicine to suppress estrus in animals.
NorgestometNorgestomet, also known as 11β-methyl-17-hydroxy-19-norprogesterone acetate, is a steroidal progestin used in veterinary medicine to control estrus and ovulation in cattle.
NomegestrolNomegestrol is an ingredient in the EMA-authorised product Zoely.

FlumedroxoneNot Annotated
DemegestoneDemegestone is a progesterone receptor agonist that was previously used to treat luteal insufficiency. It was previously marketed in France as Lutionex, but has since been discontinued.
Nomegestrol acetateNomegestrol acetate, also known as NOMAC, is a progestin used in oral contraceptives, menopausal hormone therapy, and for the treatment of gynecological disorders.
Norethindrone enanthateNot Annotated
Medroxyprogesterone acetateA progestin used as a contraceptive and in the treatment of secondary amenorrhea, abnormal uterine bleeding, pain from endometriosis, endometrial and renal carcinomas, paraphilia in males, and GnRH-dependent precocious puberty.
EtonogestrelA long-acting synthetic derived progestin contraceptive used in various devices such as contraceptive rings and intradermal implants.
DrospirenoneA progestin used in oral contraceptive pills for the prevention of pregnancy and other conditions.
BrexanoloneBrexanolone is a synthetic neuroactive steroid gamma-aminobutyric acid A (GABA(a)) receptor positive modulator indicated for the treatment of postpartum depression (PPD) in adult women [FDA Label][A176080, A176083, F4063, F4066, F4072].
