Medroxyprogesteone is one of a group of medicines called ‘progestogens’ which act like progesterone, a natural sex hormone. It can slow down the growth of certain tumors which are sensitive to hormones. As a contraceptive, it acts by preventing an egg being from fully developed and released from the ovaries, changes the lining of your womb and thickens the mucus at the entrance of the womb which makes pregnancy less likely to occur.
