 1  To stop heavy bleeding Took these to stop a heavy ongoing bled. At first all was fine but now on day 15 I have sever cramping diarrhoea aching from head to toe headaches and mood swings. Crying for no reason I have stopped taking these until I speak with my dr and it's near impossible to get hold of one these days. F 50 0 days

 2  To stop heavy period Provera stopped my heavy period for 21 days. However, my bleeding restarted and I had horrific cramps for 44 hours. I also got insomnia! F 51 21 days
10mg 1X D
 2  Induce a period due to PCOS EXTREME MOOD SWINGS, migraines, and regular pre-period symptoms (light cramping, bloating, breast tenderness) Doctors make this stuff sound about as risky as gummy vitamins, but I'm here to tell you it gave me a 3-day-long migraine and very bad mood swings -- like, mentioning divorce and suicide in the same conversation bad -- beginning when my period ended. So 10 days of pills, 1-2 days of waiting/spotting, 6 days of bleeding, and then a week (and counting) of headaches, mood swings, anxiety. Do not take Provera lightly. It did cause me to bleed and the bad symptoms didn't start until after. F 31 10 days
10mg 1X D

 2  Premenopause I stopped taking provera after taking it for 6 days since I started my period and I am noticing skin rashes on my left wrist and now bruising under my armpits where my bra hits. Severe leg cramps and heavy bleeding along with awful period cramps. Mood swings are out of this world and starting to feel depressed. F 30 6 days

 3  Endometriosis I took this after taking Cerelle 75mg as it was giving me bad burning pelvic pain, abdo cramps and constipation after four months on it, and id had a laparascopic op to remove endo in Oct 2019. My G. P had refered me to a different garni as i had previously refused the coil and wanted more informed options and he ordered me some laxatives making out i had some ibs, even though i have a diagnosis, and i said i want to try provera, the oral pill, and he said ok. Initially i was set for up to 3 times a day, i reduced it to 2 and then 1, and i think it worked before side effects started showing. It helped with resetting my cycle, and ovulating normally, but it depresses you long term and you're in a low mood, whilst taking this, headache, back ache and unsociable and thats just the oral pill so dont think id try the shot. It should only be taking for short lengths of time, small doses for starting periods or for keeping them at bay because it metabolizes in the liver amd secetes which interferes with enzyme and hormone production. Stick to low dose oral progesterones if you can for contraception etc. I would try out different types of progesterone and use a vaginal gel as it really dries up oestrogen levels as its like a hrt drug, it brings flushes and dryness and peiods non stop. 5mg is awful too. Only good for lead up to period for pms, definitely switch to agnus castus temporarily for this. You end up on trans acid for ages if it stops working . F 33 6 months

 3  endometrial cancer Fatigue, increased appetite (possible aura migraines, anxiety, mood swings) The medication apparently has a 75% chance of shrinking my cancer. I don't have results yet, so I can't really rate the efficacy. The fatigue and increased appetite are very tough to deal with, especially when trying to lose weight for surgery. Prior to starting on progestins I was chronically anemic and it's disheartening to feel this kind of fatigue again (despite the anemia being corrected). Can't really be sure if the aura migraines, anxiety, mood swings are side effects or just life issues, but I'd never had aura migraines until I started taking progestins. I bleed continuously. can't be sure if that's the Provera or the cancer. F 38 20 days

 1  Doctor wanted me to take it I have monthly period, just not heavy. I read a lot of bad reviews online. I told my doctor I didn't want to take it. He got mad and said I was wasting his time. I wish I didn't take it. My cramps were so terrible it was like I was 12 years old again, and the bleeding is non-stop like there's no size of pads to cover it. I used over 20 pads in 24 hours. In the night, I thought I was urinating. The blood is all over the bed. You're really bleeding all day. I have to wake up in the nighttime to change my pad at least 6 times, and I still bleed on my underwear, clothes, and bed. I wish doctors cared enough when you tell them you don't want to do something. Don't use this. Unvarying will work just fine. F 36 7 days

PROVERA  (MEDROXYPROGESTERONE ACETATE):  Medroxyprogesterone is a type of female hormone (progestin). This medication is similar to the progesterone that your body naturally makes and is given to replace the hormone when your body is not making enough of it. This medication has several uses. In women who are not pregnant and not going through menopause, this medication is used to treat abnormal bleeding from the uterus and to restore normal menstrual periods in women who have stopped having them for several months (amenorrhea). Medroxyprogesterone is also used as part of combination hormone replacement therapy with estrogens to reduce menopause symptoms (e.g., hot flashes). Medroxyprogesterone is added to estrogen replacement therapy to reduce the risk of cancer of the uterus. This medication must not be used to test for pregnancy.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
