Provera Tablets Uses and Indications
Medroxyprogesterone is a type of female hormone (progestin). Provera medicine does various treatments. In women who are not pregnant and not going through menopause, Provera tablets are used to treat abnormal bleeding from the uterus and to restore normal menstrual periods in women who have stopped having them for several months (amenorrhea).
Medroxyprogesterone is also used as part of combination hormone replacement therapy with estrogens to reduce menopause symptoms (e.g., hot flashes). Medroxyprogesterone is added to estrogen replacement therapy to reduce the risk of cancer of the uterus.
