What is Depo-Provera?

What is Depo-Provera?
Depo-Provera is a long-acting progestin form of birth control manufactured by the Upjohn Company, a division of pharmaceutical giant, Pfizer. The active ingredient in Depo-Provera is a synthetic hormone similar to the natural hormone progesterone.

Depo-Provera inhibits the production of another hormone, gonadotropin, which in turn, prevents ovulation. Depo-Provera also causes changes in the lining of the uterus that make pregnancy less likely to occur. Depo-Provera's estimated effectiveness in preventing pregnancy is 99 percent.

Depo-Provera was originally prescribed for women who forgot to take their pills or didn't like other forms of birth control. Depo-Provera has been prescribed for young and older women who are mentally retarded in order to halt menstrual periods. Depo-Provera was first used to treat endometriosis.

Injected into the buttocks or arm muscle every 12 weeks, Depo-Provera is effective 24 hours after the first injection if given in the first five days of a normal menstrual period. Depo-Provera injections are required every 12 weeks in order to continue ongoing birth control protection.

Once Depo-Provera is injected, it cannot be reversed or neutralized. You will have to live with the long term side effects until the medicine wears off in 12 weeks. Some women have complained of side effects lasting as long as a year or more, especially after long term use of Depo-Provera.
