Definition: Depo-Provera



Depo-Provera - progesterone-only hormone that works by suppressing the lutenizing and follicle-stimulating hormones to prevent ovulation. It typically stops menstruation, too. Depo-Provera is injected every three months into the upper arm or the buttocks and is very effective, with a 1% failure rate, provided the schedule is maintained.
