About us

Exelgyn is a pharmaceutical company specialising in reproductive women’s health. We have a worldwide presence and a strong European footprint. We were established in 1997 to develop and market the first selective progesterone receptor modulator (SPRM) in gynaecology*.

Today, Exelgyn is an international actor in medical abortion with its products available in nearly 40 countries where abortion is legal and where there is a medical infrastructure.
