It’s worth mentioning that progestogens can be divided into natural and synthetic. The difference is in the structure. If the structure of natural compounds repeats the structure of living organisms, the synthetic ones are generated artificially in the lab and undergo the modification of the structure. As a result, these types are absolutely different.
Oxyprogesterone is produced by the corpus luteum and then the placenta. It features a chemical structure that plays a key role in the support of pregnancy. This medication is analogue of hormone but it has different chemical composition because of a caproic acid residue. Its metabolism is slower than that of progesterone and, consequently, produces a more durable effect. It presents the properties that resemble the properties of the natural hormone. Binding to receptors on the surface of cells, it penetrates the nucleus for the activation of DNA and stimulation of RNA synthesis.
