Allynol 5 is a synthetic derivative of progesterone used to treat threatened pregnancy. It can prevent preterm labor and can help women give birth to a healthy newborn baby. It stimulates the secretory phase in the uterus, facilitating the development of the fertilized egg. It has a tocolytic effect; decrease the sensitivity of the uterine muscle to oxytocin. It stimulates the growth of the acinus of the mammary glands, the secretory activity of the trophoblastic cells and the growth of aldosterone of the adrenal glands. Allylestrenol also has a selective and beta effect; adrenergic. In this way, it stimulates the synthesis of placental progesterone by the body, thus increasing the secretion of placental hormones.
