In brief: Depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone)
Depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) a synthetic analogue of Progesterone works by suppressing the normal release of pituitary gonadotropins that results in the normal menstrual cycle.
Once the suppressive effect is removed, in time, the normal ovulatory cycle should resume. With resumption of the cycle release of lh & FSH fertility should resume.
