Description :
Medroxyprogesterone acetate also known as 17?-hydroxy-6?-methylprogesterone acetate, and commonly abbreviated as MPA, is asteroidal progestin, a synthetic variant of the human hormone progesterone. It is used as a contraceptive, in hormone replacement therapy and for the treatment ofendometriosis as well as several other indications. MPA is a more potent derivative of its parent compound medroxyprogesterone (MP). While medroxyprogesterone is sometimes used as a synonym for medroxyprogesterone acetate, what is normally being administered is MPA and not MP. In females, the most common use of MPA is as an oral or depot-injected contraceptive and also as the progestin component of menopausal hormone replacement therapy to prevent endometrial hyperplasia and cancer. MPA is also used as a treatment for endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, and amenorrhea. In males, MPA has been used to control inappropriate sexual behavior to chemically castrate convicted sex offenders. MPA is an extremely effective contraceptive when used with relatively high doses to prevent ovulation.
