Depo Provera Drug Description
DEPO-PROVERA
(medroxyprogesterone acetate), Contraceptive Injection

Physician Information
Women who use Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection may lose significant
bone mineral density. Bone loss is greater with increasing duration of use and
may not be completely reversible.
It is unknown if use of Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection during adolescence
or early adulthood, a critical period of bone accretion, will reduce peak bone
mass and increase the risk for osteoporotic fracture in later life.
Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection should be used as a long-term birth
control method (e.g. longer than 2 years) only if other birth control methods
are inadequate. (See WARNINGS.)
Patients should be counseled that this product does not protect against
HIV infection (AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases.
