Research Study Summary

Depo-Provera Study


The purpose of this study is to develop a way to identify women who use Depo-Provera to see if they might be at an increased risk for bone loss. For this study we are looking for women between the ages of 18-24 years old and have selected Depo-Provera as their birth control method for the next 12 months. *No grapefruit or grapefruit juice in the last 30 days.

The first visit is 4 hours long. For the first visit- patients need to get the Depo-Provera prescription from their Doctor or a Planned Parenthood and bring it with them to their 1st appointment. They need to fast-nothing to eat or drink after midnight but they can have plenty of water. They will be fasting all the way to the end of the visit. When they arrive at their appointment we will give them Nexium (over the counter heart burn medication), then they will wait for 3 hours until we draw their blood. During their wait, they will be filling out paper work, questionnaires and can bring books or movies. At the end of the visit we can give them the Depo-Provera injection or they can have their own Doctor administer the injection after the visit.
