Depo Provera Injections
Depo-Provera is a brand name for medroxyprogesterone acetate, a contraceptive injection for women that contains the hormone progestin, and is given as an injection every three months. Depo-Provera typically suppresses ovulation, keeping your ovaries from releasing an egg. Depo-Provera also thickens cervical mucus to keep sperm from reaching the egg. Depo-Provera is highly effective but is not for everyone so please see Dr. Fleming for consultation to determine if it is appropriate for you, based on your concerns and preferences, as well as your medical history. She will check your blood pressure, your weight and review your medical history and medications you’re taking and together will choose a method that is best for you.
Conveniently located at Playhouse Square at the corner of Forest Street and Washington Street in Wellesley, MA.
