Oxogestone phenpropionate (USAN), also known as (20R)-3-oxo-19-norpregn-4-en-20-yl 3-phenylpropanoate, is a steroidal progestin related to the 19-norprogesterone derivatives that was developed as an injectable hormonal contraceptive in the 1960s and early 1970s but was never marketed.[1][2] It is the 3-phenylpropionate derivative of oxogestone, which, similarly, was never marketed.[1]
