Answer

Progestins

Hormones are given to correct endocrine disorders associated with sexual precocity manifestations (98% of cases), such as pubarche, menarche, and thelarche.

Medroxyprogesterone (Provera, Depo-Provera)

Progestins stop endometrial cell proliferation, allowing organized sloughing of cells after withdrawal. Medroxyprogesterone typically does not stop an acute bleeding episode but produces a normal bleeding episode after withdrawal.
