Does provera (medroxyprogesterone) oral work for teenage girls that have pcos and have irregular periods?

Depends. Depends on what you are trying to treat. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) will regulate menses but will not have an effect on excessive hair growth or acne. Most women who are not trying to get pregnant will be treated with oral contraceptive pills as it treats more of the pcos symptoms then Provera (medroxyprogesterone) alone. I would recommend seeing a reproductive endocrinologist to go over all the possible treatment options.
