100 g of gel contains:
Active substance: natural micronized progesterone - 1 g;

The active component of the drug is progesterone.
The action of progesterone is based on the blocking of estrogen receptors, as a result of which the absorption of fluid from tissues improves and the compression of the milky ducts decreases, as well as on the blocking of prolactin receptors in the breast tissue, which leads to a decrease in lactopoiesis.
Local use of the drug, creating a high concentration of progesterone in the area of application, does not have a systemic effect and avoids undesirable side effects.
The mechanism of action of Progestogel is based on an increase in the concentration of progesterone in the tissues of the mammary gland. Progesterone reduces the expression of estrogen receptors in breast tissue, and also reduces the local level of active estrogens by stimulating the production of enzymes (17-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase and estronsulfotransferase) that oxidize estradiol to less active estrone (binding the latter, enzymes turn it into inactive estrone sulfate).
Thus, progesterone limits the proliferative effect of estrogens on breast tissue.
Also, progesterone has a small natriodiuretic effect by inhibiting tubular reabsorption and increasing cellular filtration, preventing fluid retention during secretory transformations of the glandular component of the mammary glands and, as a result, the development of pain syndrome (mastalgia or mastodynia).
Along with this, the transdermal method of administration of progestogen also allows you to influence the state of the glandular epithelium and vascular network, as a result of which the permeability of capillaries decreases, the degree of swelling of breast tissue decreases, and the symptoms of mastalgia disappear.
