About Provera 

Provera is a medication used to treat conditions such as inconsistent menstruation, abnormal uterine bleeding, general contraception and womb/kidney and breast cancers. It is also used to decrease the risk of endometrial hyperplasia (a condition that may lead to uterine cancer) while taking estrogens.
When used as a contraceptive, Provera and its multiple subtypes use progesterone, the female hormone that prevents ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary). Provera can also cause changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.

  • Depo-Provera

  • Depo-Provera CI

  • Depo-subQ Provera 104 (Medroxyprogesterone)

 Possible Side Effects of Provera

The primary side effect attributed to use of Provera is Intracranial Meningioma (benign brain tumors) – a tumor that grows in the membranes that surround the brain (meninges). According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), women develop meningiomas 21⁄2 times more frequently than men.

Most users develop a single meningioma; however, some patients may develop several tumors growing simultaneously in other locations of the brain or spinal cord. Various types of meningiomas include, but are not limited to:

  • Cavernous Sinus Meningioma: Occurs near the area that drains deoxygenated blood to the heart from the brain.

  • Cerebellopontine Angle Meningioma: Located near the margin of the cerebellum; acoustic neuromas (vestibular schwannoma) are also frequently found in this area. 

  • Cerebral Convexity Meningioma: Located on the upper surface of the cerebral convexity.

  • Foramen Magnum Meningioma: Located near the opening at the base of the skull through which the lower portion of the brainstem passes. 

  • Intraorbital Meningioma: Located in or around the eye sockets.

  • Intraventricular Meningioma: Located in the fluid chambers that produce and carry cerebrospinal fluid throughout the brain. 

  • Olfactory Groove Meningioma: Located along the nerves connecting the nose to the brain. 

  • Parasagittal/Falx Meningioma: Located adjacent to the dural fold that separates the two brain hemispheres. 

  • Petrous Ridge Meningioma: Portion of the temporal bone (which supports the temple) that contain sections of the organs that facilitate hearing. 

  • Posterior Fossa Meningioma: Occurs near the back of the brain. 

  • Sphenoid Meningioma: Located near the sphenoid bone behind the eyes. 

  • Spinal Meningioma: Located in the spine, in some cases against the spinal cord. 

  • Suprasellar Meningioma: Located near the area of the skull where the pituitary gland is found.

  • Tentorium Meningioma: Located near where the brain connects to the brainstem, an area known as the tentorium cerebelli.
