Can anyone tell me what Provera is? The Dr. said it is a hormone pill something like Birth Control... but I'm wondering if it is birth control or if it's just the hornmone pill so I don't have my periods every 2 weeks?

I have looked and looked on Google but only find information about Depo-Provera shot but I am taking the Medroxyprogesterone (Generic for Provera Pill...) not the shot.
