What is Dienogest? Benefits, Uses and Side effects

Dienogest is a progestin, or a synthetic progestogen, of the 19-nortestosterone group. It is available in combination with estradiol valerate (as Natazia, Qlaira) or ethinylestradiol (as Valette) for use as an oral contraceptive, and by itself (as Visanne, Dinagest) for the treatment of endometriosis in Europe, Australia, and Japan. Although available in combination with estrogen as a contraceptive in the United States, dienogest is not available in this country by itself. In addition to its progestogenic effects, dienogest has antiandrogenic activity, and as a result can improve androgenic symptoms such as acne. It is a non-ethynylated progestin which is structurally related to testosterone.

Medical uses of Dienogest

Dienogest is used primarily as a contraceptive in combination with ethinylestradiol under the brand name Valette. It is given as a tablet containing 2 mg of dienogest and 30 μg of ethinylestradiol. The drug is also available in a quadriphasic oral contraceptive pill combined with estradiol valerate, marketed as Natazia in the United States and Qlaira in some European countries and Russia. This formulation is also approved for the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding.

Side effects of Dienogest

Adverse effects associated with dienogest are the same as those expected of a progestogen. These include weight gain, increased blood pressure, breast tenderness, and nausea.[better source needed] It produces no androgenic side effects and has little effect on metabolic and lipid hemostatic parameters.
