How you prepare

By Mayo Clinic Staff

You'll need to request a prescription for Depo-Provera from your health care provider. He or she will likely review your medical history and check your blood pressure. Talk to your health care provider about any medications you're taking, including nonprescription and herbal products. If you're interested in giving yourself Depo-Provera injections at home, ask your health care provider if that's an option.
