Bromethenmadinone acetate (BMMA, also known as bromsuperlutin) is a progestin medication which was developed in Czechoslovakia and was described in 1970 but was never marketed.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9] Analogues of BMMA include chlormethenmadinone acetate, melengestrol acetate, and methenmadinone acetate.
