Desogestrel (DSG) is a third-generation 19-nortestosterone derivative progestogen. It is contained in many oral contraceptive preparations, both combined (COCs) to ethinyl-estradiol (EE) or alone in a progestin-only pill (POP). Its principal metabolite (etonogestrel, ETN) is the only progestin used for intravaginal combined contraception and one of the most used for subdermal hormonal contraception.

Abstract

Desogestrel (DSG) is a third-generation 19-nortestosterone derivative progestogen. It is contained in many oral contraceptive preparations, both combined (COCs) to ethinyl-estradiol (EE) or alone in a progestin-only pill (POP). Its principal metabolite (etonogestrel, ETN) is the only progestin used for intravaginal combined contraception and one of the most used for subdermal hormonal contraception.
