In tablet form, medroxyprogesterone is used to treat irregular vaginal bleeding and to restore regular menstrual periods in women who have not had a period for several months.
 
Women can also take medroxyprogesterone tablets as part of their hormone replacement regimen. When used in this manner, medroxyprogesterone is added to estrogen therapy to reduce the risk of cancer of the uterus.
