Depo-Subq Provera is used in the prevention of pregnancies. It is also recommended in reducing pain that has been brought on by endometriosis. Depo-Subq Provera is a suspension that is injectable. It works by inhibiting the chemicals that have been released from the brain that stimulate the ovaries so that they can produce eggs. It also changes the lining of the uterus so that it will not accept an egg that has been fertilized. These factors work together to reduce chances of pregnancy from taking place after intercourse.
