The androgen receptor is most similar to the progesterone receptor.

For this reason, while progesterone normally binds to the progesterone receptor, it also has a weak affinity for the androgen receptors. When other topical antiandrogens with stronger affinity for the AR were not available, people would crush birth control pills and add them to minoxidil.

These days many birth control pills contain synthetic versions of progesterone called progestins, not all of which are pure antagonist, making that an even worse choice.

Spiro is a progestin which makes a better choice for a topical antiandrogens.

I believe I've read that progesterone is also weakly estrogenic, so that's another way progesterone *may* promote scalp hair growth.
