Medroxyprogesterone 10 Mg Side Effects
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.
Effects can vary.: It can change your menstrual cycle, both in frequency and flow. Other possible side effects include water retention, decreased appetite, weakness, & soreness at the injection site. Depression, dizziness, headache, nervousness, sleepiness, breast tenderness, breast discharge, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, jaundice, blood clots, and phlebitis are less common. It's also possible to have no side effects at all!

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.

Depending on the type of side effects you're having, temporary supplementation with estrogen may help mitigate these side effects.
