Description: Dienogest is an orally active synthetic progesterone (or progestin). It is available for use as an oral contraceptive in combination with ethinylestradiol. It has antiandrogenic activity and as a result can improve androgenic symptoms. It is a non-ethinylated progestin which is structurally related to testosterone. Dienogest given in isolation is available for the treatment of endometriosis under the trade name Visanne. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dienogest).
