Medroxyprogesterone Acetate Tablet- MEPOMIR-10 tablets contain Medroxyprogesterone Acetate, a progestin that is used to treat abnormal uterine bleeding and endometriosis. It works by replacing the body’s inability to produce the natural progesterone hormone. In menopausal women taking oestrogen, this treats painful, irregular/absent menstrual periods and prevents uterine lining overgrowth (another female hormone). It can also be used as a contraceptive.
