Cyproterone acetate is an antiandrogen drug used in the treatment of symptoms associated with an excess of androgens, including hirsutism, ovulation problems, and male pattern baldness in women. It is also used in the treatment of prostate cancer. It may increase the risk of thromboembolic events so the use of oral contraceptives which use this drug in combination with estrogen can bring an increased risk of blood clots.
