Additional Information

Provera is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called progestins. Progestins are man-made forms of a hormone called progesterone. Progesterone is important for the development and maintenance of the uterine lining during the menstrual cycle. It also plays a role in implantation and pregnancy.

It can also be used to prevent thinning of the uterus lining (atrophy) that may occur after menopause. This medication may also be used to increase blood levels of progesterone in women who have low levels of this hormone, or who are using certain types of birth control (such as an intrauterine device, or IUD).Provera may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

To make sure Provera is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had:

- heart disease or a "mini-stroke";

- high blood pressure;

- a blood clotting disorder;

- asthma or allergies;

- migraines;

- diabetes;

- seizures;

- depression or mental illness; or

- liver disease.

Do not use this medicine if you are pregnant. Provera can cause birth defects. If you take Provera while you are pregnant, your baby could die, or be born with breasts and genitals that are not fully developed. Use effective birth control to prevent pregnancy while you are using this medicine. If you think you have become pregnant, tell your doctor right away. Taking Provera can increase your risk of developing blood clots. This risk is even higher if you have certain medical conditions or are taking other medicines that increase your risk of blood clots.
