Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
Active gel substance Progestogel progesterone is a hormone that produces the yellow body of the ovaries after the release of the oocyte (the process of ovulation). It blocks the receptors of cells to estrogen, due to which it reduces its effect on the body. The main therapeutic effect of the drug develops due to the accumulation of progesterone in the tissues of the mammary gland with external use of the drug. Progesterone helps reduce edema of the tissues, squeezing the ducts of the mammary gland, as well as reducing the intensity of the lactopoiesis process (production of breast milk) by blocking the receptors to the hormone prolactin. Since progesterone blocks receptors for estrogen, it reduces the intensity of proliferation (division) of cells of the alveoli and ducts of the mammary gland.
With the external application of the Progestogel gel, the active substance accumulates directly in the tissues of the breast, without being metabolized in the liver. In the systemic circulation, progesterone is absorbed in small concentrations, after which it is converted in the liver to inactive decay products, which are excreted in the urine and partly with feces.
