Provera generically known as medroxyprogesterone, is a synthetic form of the hormone progesterone. It is a prescription medication indicated to treat abnormal menstruation or irregular vaginal bleeding. The active ingredient in Provera is Medroxyprogesterone. Medroxyprogesterone is a synthetic form of the hormone progesterone and works by regulating hormones in the body.

Medroxyprogesterone is primarily indicated to treat abnormal uterine bleeding due to hormonal imbalances and secondary amenorrhea (the absence of menstrual periods). It may also be used to reduce the risk of endometrial hyperplasia (a thickening of the uterine lining) in women taking estrogen replacement therapy.

Uses and Dosage

Provera is available in tablet form and should be taken orally as directed by a healthcare professional. When used in combination with estrogen for hormone replacement therapy, take Medroxyprogesterone once daily for a prescribed number of days each month as instructed. If being used to treat stopped menstrual periods (amenorrhea) and abnormal bleeding from the uterus, take Medroxyprogesterone once daily for 5-10 days during the second half of the planned menstrual cycle or as advised by your healthcare provider. After stopping the medication, withdrawal bleeding typically happens within 3-7 days.

The recommended dosages of Provera vary depending on the specific condition being treated.

  • For dysfunctional (an ovulatory) uterine bleeding, adults may take 2.5 - 10 mg daily for 5-10 days starting on the assumed or calculated 16th-21st day of the cycle.
  • For inducing an optimum secretory transformation of an endometrium, the recommended dosage typically involves taking a 5 or 10 mg daily dose for 5-10 days.
