Hello,

Regestrone is a synthetic progestin. It works by mimicking the effects of natural progesterone. It helps regulate your periods. You can use Regestrone along with your weight loss program.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Prabhash Verma, General & Family Physician
