Medroxyprogesterone acetate tablets are used to treat certain hormonal disturbances, irregular periods and also for withdrawal periods . They are not used to support a pregnancy. Recent studies have indicated that inadvertant use in early pregnancy doesn't cause structural defects in the baby. Do discuss this with your doctor. Your doctor can prescribe you other progesterone preparations which are better to support the pregnancy and also prescribe appropriate tests and medications.
