Depo-provera: Depo-provera is progesterone (long acting) and can cause increased fluid to accumulate in your body, which raises one's weight. It does not cause increased fat nor does it cause loss of weight. Weight loss can be caused by increased stress and many other disorders, so see your healthcare provider if this continues.
