Dianette Drugs


Dianette or Cyproterone is a synthetic medicine which comes under the class of steroidal anti-androgen, progestine and anti-gonadotropin. Antiandrogens are effective in blocking the action of hormone called testosterone. This results in reduced production of hormone testosterone in testicles. This is done by blocking the interactions of androgen with their respective receptors. It also suppresses the biosynthesis of androgen. This medication is used for the management of advanced prostate cancer. Discuss with your doctor before starting any dose of this medication. Always keep it in mind that this medication should not be given to anyone else to use who has the same symptoms, because it can be harmful to use this medication without consulting the physician.


The medicine works as a contraceptive by preventing the ripening and release of eggs from the ovaries, as well as increasing the thickness of the cervical mucus, which makes it more difficult for sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb. It also changes the lining of the womb so that it is less suitable for any fertilised eggs to successfully implant in.
