Progestogens are agonists of the progesterone receptor, the typical progestogen is progesterone. Progestins are synthetic progestogens, some examples include cyproterone acetate, medroxyprogesterone acetate, and norethisterone.

Comparison of progestogens[edit]

Many progestins have off-target biological action (e.g., binding to the androgen receptor or glucocorticoid receptor). This means that studies discussing one progestogen do not necessarily readily apply to another progestogen.
