  • According to the National Institutes of Health, this is exactly what you're supposed to be getting. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a682470.html

  • Yes. From the link:


    Medroxyprogesterone is used to treat abnormal menstruation (periods) or irregular vaginal bleeding. Medroxyprogesterone is also used to bring on a normal menstrual cycle in women who menstruated normally in the past but have not menstruated for at least 6 months and who are not pregnant or undergoing menopause (change of life). Medroxyprogesterone is also used to prevent overgrowth of the lining of the uterus (womb) and may decrease the risk of cancer of the uterus in patients who are taking estrogen. Medroxyprogesterone is in a class of medications called progestins. It works by stopping the growth of the lining of the uterus and by causing the uterus to produce certain hormones.

  • Love it when people think they know better than a doctor. You got exactly what you needed. If you were skeptical about why the medication was being prescribed you should ASK them. If you are still in doubt, get a second opinion from another doctor.

  • Yes that is right. Bleeding is triggered by a drop of progesterone levels so by giving you progesterone your cycle should stop soon

  • Exactly what gd said. If you're unhappy with the results, the best thing to do is to discuss this with your Dr.
