Medroxyprogesterone is a a form of progesterone, a female hormone that helps regulate ovulation and menstrual periods. If your periods are irregular or have stopped completely for no obvious reason you may be given medroxyprogesterone for 5 to 10 days each month to mimic the natural rise in your progesterone levels.
A few days after you stop taking the tablets you should get your period.
It is impossible to predict how long you will bleed for as everyone is different. Medroxyprogesterone can change your normal menstrual flow. If you are worried you should consult your health professional.
