Promegestone (INN) (brand name Surgestone), also known as 17α,21-dimethyl-19-nor-Δ4,9-pregnadiene-3,20-dione, is a 19-norprogesterone derivative and steroidal progestin which was introduced in 1983 and is marketed in France, Portugal, and Argentina.[1][2][3][4] Indications include gynaecological conditions caused by luteal insufficiency, including premenopausal disorders, dysmenorrhea, and premenstrual syndrome.[4] Unlike some other progestins, promegestone is devoid of androgenic properties.[4]

In addition to its progestogenic properties, promegestone has also been found to act as a non-competitive antagonist of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor.[5]
