Does Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) get rid of uterine fibroids?

In brief: No

Depoprovera and other hormonal medications may reduce fibroid-associated abnormal bleeding, and in some cases may reduce fibroid size.
However the symptoms will return when the medication wears off. The fibroids are still there.
