Contraindicated in patients with known or suspected pregnancy or with undiagnosed vaginal bleeding.

WARNING: Loss of bone mineral density

Women who use Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection may lose significant bone mineral density.

Bone loss is greater with increasing duration of use and may not be completely reversible.

It is unknown if the use of Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection during adolescence or early adulthood, a critical period of bone accretion, will reduce peak bone mass and increase the risk for osteoporotic fracture in later life.

Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection should not be used as a long-term birth control method
(i.e., longer than 2 years) unless other birth control methods are considered inadequate.


Depo-Provera CI is indicated only for the prevention of pregnancy. The loss of bone mineral density (BMD) in women of all ages and the impact on peak bone mass in adolescents should be considered, along with the decrease in BMD that occurs during pregnancy and/or lactation, in the risk/benefit assessment for women who use Depo-Provera CI long-term [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].


2.1 Prevention of Pregnancy

Both the 1 mL vial and the 1 mL prefilled syringe of Depo-Provera CI should be vigorously shaken just before use to ensure that the dose being administered represents a uniform suspension.

The recommended dose is 150 mg of Depo-Provera CI every 3 months (13 weeks) administered by deep IM injection in the gluteal or deltoid muscle.

Depo-Provera CI should not be used as a long-term birth control method (i.e. longer than 2 years) unless other birth control methods are considered inadequate.

Dosage does not need to be adjusted for body weight [See Clinical Studies (14.1)].

To ensure the patient is not pregnant at the time of the first injection, the first injection should be given ONLY during the first 5 days of a normal menstrual period; ONLY within the first 5-days postpartum if not
breast-feeding; and if exclusively breast-feeding, ONLY at the sixth postpartum week.

If the time interval between injections is greater than 13 weeks, the physician should determine that the patient is not pregnant before administering the drug. The efficacy of Depo-Provera CI depends on adherence to the dosage
schedule of administration.

2.2 Switching from other Methods of Contraception

When switching from other contraceptive methods, Depo-Provera CI should be given in a manner that
ensures continuous contraceptive coverage based upon the mechanism of action of both methods,
(e.g., patients switching from oral contraceptives should have their first injection of Depo-Provera CI on the
day after the last active tablet or at the latest, on the day following the final inactive tablet).
