Depo-Provera: An Injectable Contraceptive
Medroxyprogesterone acetate (Depo-Provera) is now approved for use as an injectable contraceptive. It is highly effective and has the advantage of only needing to be administered once every 12 weeks. The most common side effects are menstrual irregularities, amenorrhea in particular. Several illustrative cases are presented that demonstrate appropriate patient selection for this agent.
