The common side effects of provera (medroxyprogesterone) are what?

Usually none.: Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is oral progesterone, modified so it's not just digested in the stomach. It is used to control menstrual bleeding. Rarely, someone has mood changes, like depression, while taking it. Depo-provera, which is a shot, is different because it's a much bigger dose. It can cause weight gain.

Which type of side effects should I expect with the Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot?

Irregular bleeding: Depo provera--"the shot" is commonly associated with irregular bleeding, especially in the first 3-6 months. At the end of one year, approximately 50% of women are no longer having any bleeding, which most women consider to be a very good thing. You should document the days of bleeding on a calendar, but don't worry about it. Eme women may be hungrier and gain weight. Some may have acne/oily skin.

I had to come off Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) due to really bad side effects, I was wondering when the Depo-Provera will be completely flushed from my system?

3-4 months: You can expect the effects of Depo-Provera, both the contraceptive effects and the side effects to last at least as long as the recommended period between Depo shots. Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) suppresses the production of estrogen. Depending on the type of side effects you're having, temporary supplementation with estrogen may help mitigate these side effects.

Bloating: Is the most common symptom I see with my patients. Hopefully, you are being evaluated as to why you are bleeding. Could be a temporary hormone imbalance, peri menopause, uterine polyp or tumor. Most likely one of the first 2. Get it checked out.

Is 12 too young to begin taking the Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot? It has been doctor prescribed, but some of the long term side effects seem worrisome.

No: You can use it in a 12 year old, but she is on the young side. There are side effects and risks to taking Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) as there are to any medication. I would discuss your concerns with her physician. There many options for birth control (all with side effects). You can always get a second opinion as well.

Irregular periods: You had one Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injection but didn't get any more. It can take up to 6 months for all the hormone to get out of the body and some women will have irregular periods during that time, though in some women the periods will be regular.

Missed period for a month. Doctor has prescribed provera (medroxyprogesterone) 10mg. What are the side-effects of it? Shld I take it or wait for normal cycle to start?

You could wait: Did your doc get any bloodwork? It is not unusual for a woman to skip a period occasionally, but if you skip more than 3 months, taking Progesterone (like provera) can jump-start a period.
