Deviry (Generic Provera) (Medroxyprogesterone) is used to treat abnormal menstruation, irregular vaginal bleeding, renal cell cancer and endometrial cancer.its belongs to a class of hormones called progestins.
And Can be used for Ovary cyst also.
Ask your mother to consult a gynaecologist.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic. The drug Deviry is Medroxyprogesterone, which has quite a lot of indications like secondary amenorrhoea and its evaluation, endometriosis, disfunctional uterine bleeding.Even it has got its use as respiratory stimulant. Probably , for your mother, they must have given for endometriosis, as you mentioned she got ovarian cyst. Wish your mother sooner recovery.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since your mother is 58 years i guess your mother has menopause.A ovarian cyst at this age is not normal and she should be investigated for the type of cyst whether it is benign or malignant(cancerous).Deviry is a hormonal preparation & is neither indicated nor will help her in anyway.Please consult a Gynaec ASAP to investigate & rule out malignancy.
