A woman at the nightclub in Cobar on Saturday night was taken by 5 men, who according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her. Unable to remember the events of the evening, tests later confirmed the repeated rape along with traces of
Rohypnol in her blood, with Progesterex, which is essentially a small sterilization pill. This drug is now being used by rapists at parties to rape and sterilize their victims. Progesterex is available to vets to sterilize large animals.

Rumor has it that Progesterex is being used together with Rohypnol, the date rape drug.
As with Rohypnol, all they have to do is drop it into the girls drink. The girl can't remember a thing the next morning, of all that had taken place the night before. Progesterex, which dissolves in drinks just as easily, is such that the victim doesn't conceive from the rape and the rapist needn't worry about having a paternity test identifying him months later.

The drugs effects are not temporary- They are permanent! Progesterex was designed to sterilize horses. Any female who takes it will never be able to conceive. The bastards can get this drug from anyone who is in vet school or any university. It's that easy, and Progesterex is about to break out big every where. Believe it or not, there are even sites on
the Internet telling people how to use it.

Please make the effort to pass this onto all you know especially female friends.

Thank you

Permanent worry

Hi Yangdol,

Thank you for sharing this alarming information. I was not aware of the Progesterex drug and its use with Rohypnol. As if rape were not devastating enough. I will pass this along to my female friends.

Warm regards,

Thank you!

It is a very strange world we live in and it is sad we have to be aware of such things but it is so important for our own well being. Thank you for passing on that information! That is a very scary thought and I hope it can somehow become monitored before it ruins many woman's lives!

Thank you


thanks for sharing this .. the story of women and places and drugs and things we never knew and which they get to know first and then treat us like animals. For me, what happens to any woman is happening to all of us women and then to all humans....

I still want to wish you a happy International Women's day and to encourage you to keep those eyes open for justice.. otherwise there is nothing to celebrate if we cannot win these wars...

and you look very young... that is wonderful that you are so alert and sad that this is the world we have.. but always.. thumbs up!

wake up girls indeed!

I don't know what is scarier... This story of gang rape with progesterex or the fact that you all believe it.

I think you people need to do just a LITTLE bit of verification before forwarding on these sort of emails/postings, or blindly jumping on the bandwagon and saying "...sad the world we have...let others know about it...that is so scary...blah, blah, blah." It would be scary if it were true... So would many horror movies and other works of fiction if they were real.

This email originated in 1999 and has been fooling many a gullible person since. Progesterex doesn't even exist!!!! It is a made up drug! A simple Google search reveals this.

Here are some links for your benefit:

So stop wasting people’s time, clogging up people’s inboxes, and scaring people unnecessarily by perpetuating this rubbish. Never mind "proud to be woman" just work on being a little bit discerning.

sorry for wasting ur time

hi ladies

first of all, Miss/ Mr/Mrs MYSTERY,

thank you for your correction and comments.
Well, i am SORRY if i have wasted your time as well as anyone's time by posting on PROGESTEREX. In this world, anything will happen and many unexpected incidents are happening. So when i got the above information from one of my close friends, i have immediately wanted to share to the world thinking that i can help and make our girls aware of it, no any hidden aim at back. I POSTED this to let them know. if it is fake or unreal, i am more happy and its good for all of us. So once again, sorry for wasting your precious TIME.

We never know what is going to happen in this world as we are human and human beings are capable of anything!
