    Function: noun

    Drospirenone is a synthetic progestin that is an analog to spironolactone. Its molecular weight is 366.5 and its molecular formula is C24H30O3.

    The compound is part of certain birth control formulations.

    I tried looking it up at wikipedia but couldn' tunderstand it either.
