Being an ester of hydroxyprogesterone, is slower progesterone metabolized (has a longer effect). After a single intramuscular injection of the oil solution, its action lasts from 7 to 14 days. Biological properties similar to progesterone. By binding to receptors on the surface of target organ cells, it penetrates into the nucleus, where, by activating DNA, it stimulates RNA synthesis. It promotes the transition of the uterine mucous membrane from the proliferation phase caused by follicular hormone to the secretory one, and after fertilization creates the necessary conditions for the implantation and development of the fertilized egg. Reduces the excitability and contractility of the muscles of the uterus and fallopian tubes, stimulates the development of the terminal elements of the mammary gland.
