Does Provera Cause Weight Gain?

Although most people do not experience any problems with Provera® (medroxyprogesterone acetate), certain problems may occur while taking this medicine. Some people who are prescribed this drug may wonder if Provera causes weight gain.
 
Because Provera is an older medication, only vague information is available about possible side effects. Based on the side effects reported by women taking other progestin hormones, possible side effects of Provera may include weight gain or weight loss. However, it is not known how often these problems occur in people using this drug.
