In brief: Very well

It is a very effective contraceptive method, however you need to carefully evaluate the side effects - weight gain is a big one for many, also long term use really increases the risk for osteoporosis.

In brief: How it works

Depo also known as depo-provera is a type of synthetic progestin.
But unlike natural Progesterone (pro-gestation-hormone), depo-provera has antagonistic properties and is a hormone disruptor that will not allow the uterine lining to become.
