Depo Provera Injection (Medroxyprogesterone 150mg/ml)
Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is a reversible method of prescription birth control. Also known as DMPA, Depo shot, or the birth control shot. Each Depo-Provera shot slowly releases a synthetic form of progestin, medroxyprogesterone acetate, that can protect you against pregnancy for 11 to 14 weeks.
Medroxyprogesterone injection is used to prevent pregnancy. Depo Provera Injection is also used to treat endometriosis (a condition in which the type of tissue that lines the uterus (womb) grows in other areas of the body and causes pain, heavy or irregular menstruation, and other symptoms).
Medroxyprogesterone is in a class of medications called Progestins. It works by preventing an egg from developing fully and being released from the ovaries during your menstrual cycle. It also alters the lining of your womb and thickens the mucus at the entrance of the womb, making it more difficult for the sperm to enter. This prevents pregnancy.
Your physician or nurse will give you this injection. Kindly do not self administer.
