Pharmacological action

Oxyprogesterone - an analogue of the corpus luteum hormone (progesterone). Chemically different from progesterone in that in position 17 it contains a caproic acid residue. Being an ester of hydroxyprogesterone, it metabolizes more slowly than progesterone (it has a longer effect). After a single IM injection of the oil solution, its effect lasts from 7 to 14 days. Biologically similar to progesterone. Contacting the receptors on the surface of the cells of target organs, it penetrates into the nucleus, where, by activating DNA, it stimulates RNA synthesis. It promotes the transition of the uterine mucosa from the proliferation phase caused by the follicular hormone to the secretory one, and after fertilization creates the necessary conditions for implantation and development of a fertilized egg. It reduces the excitability and contractility of the muscles of the uterus and fallopian tubes, stimulates the development of terminal elements of the mammary gland.


Quickly and almost completely absorbed after intramuscular administration.

Metabolized in the liver to form conjugates with glucuronic and sulfuric acids.

T1 / 2 is 5 min. It is excreted by the kidneys - 50-60%, with bile - more than 10%. The number of metabolites excreted by the kidneys varies depending on the phase of the corpus luteum


Conditions associated with insufficiency of the corpus luteum: a threatening and beginning miscarriage (prevention and treatment), amenorrhea (primary and secondary), dysfunctional uterine bleeding.
