Depends: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) would be an effective contraceptive even for a patient with pcos. Cycle control is a different issue. The number one side effect of Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is irregular and unpredictable bleeding - so cycle control may be even worse. The second most common side effect of Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is weight gain. The medication stimulates the appetite resulting in increased calorie intake and weight gain.
