How Provera Products work

Medroxyprogesterone acetate is a progestin (female hormone). It works by replacing the natural progesterone hormone that the body is unable to make. This treats painful, irregular/absent menstrual periods and prevents overgrowth of the lining of the uterus in menopausal women taking oestrogen (another female hormone). It also works as a contraceptive.

Frequently asked questions about Provera Products

Frequently asked questions about Medroxyprogesterone acetate

Q. How does Provera work? What is it used for?
Provera works similar to the progesterone hormone naturally produced by the body. It helps in regulating the periods, stopping irregular bleeding and for controlling the withdrawal bleeding in case of amenorrhea (unusual stopping of menstrual periods). It is also used to prevent endometrial hyperplasia (thickening of the lining of the uterus) in women who are taking conjugated estrogens.
Q. When and how to take Provera?
Take it strictly as advised by your doctor. The number of doses and the duration will depend on the medical problem you are being treated for. You can take it with or without food, preferably at the same time of each day to ensure consistent levels of medicine in your body.
Q. What if I miss to take Provera?
Ideally, you should not miss any dose during any treatment. Missing a dose may increase the likelihood of breakthrough vaginal bleeding or spotting (blood stain). However, if you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with the usual dosing schedule.
Q. What are the common side effects which I can experience while taking Provera?
The common side effects of Provera include headache, nausea (feeling sick), weight gain, breast pain, and unusual vaginal bleeding or spotting. Do not worry, most of these symptoms are temporary. However, if they persist, check with your doctor as soon as possible.
Q. Is Provera a contraceptive?
No, Provera is not a contraceptive. You should use an effective form of birth control to prevent pregnancy. If you think you have become pregnant while using the medicine, tell your doctor right away to avoid any harm to the baby.
