It all depends: It depends on "why" you are using it: it will not make anything "worse." DMPA generally stops (after few months) irregular bleeding from PCOS: It will NOT 1) make you ovulate (the contrary,) 2) it will not cure your PCOS, 3) it will not help you get pregnant. It stops periods and will reduce (or eliminate) your risk of endometrial hyperplasia.

Probably help: The main thing we try to do to treat PCOS is to suppress the function of the ovaries. DepoProvera does a good job of this for most patients. You still need to be on the Metformin and Spironolactone. This is something you should discuss with your Doctor
