BackgroundThere are many controversies on the association between depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) and bone mineral density (BMD). This study reevaluated BMD in postmenopausal women who had used DMPA as a contraceptive until they reached menopause and compared them with non-users. BMD had previously been measured in these women either at 1 year or 2–3 years after menopause and was reassessed in these women 2 years later. Therefore, comparisons were made between the first and third years and between the second to third and fourth to fifth years after menopause.

    • ...The Brazilian group continued to follow radial BMD in a subset of the subjects (24 former DMPA and 55 former copper IUD users) and found that there was no statistically significant difference in BMD when evaluations were continued up to 5 years after menopause, concluding that the hypoestrogenism associated with DMPA use appears to have little effect on BMD after menopause [50]...
