 1  Bleeding for 3 weeks The worst ever .. I was told to take thia med twice a day for 15 days. When I had received my prescription it was for once a day for 30 days. I have had hot flashes. . serious mood swings..weight gain.. bloated .. gassy.. migraines.. no energy. I stop taking the pill for only a couple of days ago. . firsy day of me stopping. . I started cramping. . within 48 hours after the pill. I started my period. I am on the 3 day with the pill... and I have such a heavy flow. . so much clotting that I cant even leave my house. I am glad I stop taking these pills.. because I was so sleeping didn't have energy and moody. . I had dizziness. . I had to get off.. I must trust God from here. The doctor just gave me the pills... without really knowing what is wrong with me. I know they found two ovarian cysts F 35 1 days

 3  Heavy periods, clots and cramping BLOATING so bad that I almost feel as though I can't breath, (which is not good for someone with bad anxiety). Hair is shedding really bad, just noticed that this morning. The heavy cycle and cramps didnt last as long but still bleeding for a week now. I will only be on this medicine for a short time until I have the endometrial ablation next week. If anyone has had this procedure please let me know. Thanks! F 41 9 days

 4  no period for 5 months, TTC I have been on the "1 pill for 10 days" for two months now. Each month my period has come on exactly days 3 of stopping the Provera. So successful in the fact that I started my period. However, my period still does not come on its own (without the Provera. (Frustrating). Side effects were bloating, exhaustion, and lower back pain.

 1  HRT along with Estrace Breasts extremely sore and enlarged. Weight gain. Hungry all the time. Poor sleep. Mood swings, irritability. Abdominal cramping. Spotting. Painful breasts and mood swings (depression, suicidal thoughts) were definitely the worst problems. Took Prometrium for 4 years with no side effects. Had to switch to Provera when Prometrium no longer covered. Decided to pay for Prometrium and symptoms went away within a week being off the Provera. F 52 2 months

 1  Induce period Extreme lethargy, nausea, horrible horrible horrible diarrhea! Chills, hot flashes, vivid nightmares(shaking during them bolting up and screaming, which I've never experienced before), body aches, head aches, emotional/moodiness, clumsy (have about 10 cuts from clumsily falling or doing stupid stuff which isn't like me either. It really does feel like I'm pregnant but worse even though I know I'm not. I wish I had never taken this drug!!! So far no period but this is worse than not having a period. I should have just waited it out to see if my period would come back or used a different means. I stopped breastfeeding 4 months ago and no period so my OB put me on this horrible stuff. F 28 10 days

 4  To stop a prolonged period Tingling/pins and needles in arms, hands, lips off and on. I was prescribed Provera to stop a 6-week period that was causing anemia. My bleeding stopped within a couple of days. About a week after taking the last Provera pill, I had another period. I had a couple of big clots the first day but otherwise it was a normal period that was not too heavy and stopped within 5 days. I am supposed to take the pills the first 14 days of each month. I am on the second month. The only side effect I have had is numbness and tingling (off and on during the day, not constant) which stopped completely the first month after I finished the 14 days. Other than that, I am satisfied with Provera. F 41 14 days

 2  endocometrosis and cystic desease I have taken Provera 10 days out of the month and been just fine. When my dose increased I decided to start taking it about the same time as I take the regular dose. When i did get my period it slowed it down but caused me to have very very bad cramps and blotting. Plus it was suppose to lessen or stop my period and I just am having the same Except it slowed it down. I'm calling my doctor on Monday to see if I cannot get something else. But since I'm 38 and my doctor said I needed a hysterectomy, even though I haven't had children and my condition is NOT cancerous I kinda freaked out on her. She also said that it the cystic part was because of my history of diabetes. F 38 15 days

 1  to shed thick uterus lining anxiety/depression/ sore breasts/bloating/wind and this was before the most awful heavy period... constant blood flow/clotting. It wasnt explained that I would have such a heavy prolonged period - I thought i wa going to have to go to ER. I am on my 3rd day off work. On 2nd day I literally gushed like a dam into the toilet - it was like a bloodbath - a huge splash. Have been bleeding constantly since. Its like a DIY D&C at home.... F 48 5 days

 4  extended bleeding, hypothyroidism Nausea, vomiting, bloating, headache, unusual sensitivity to smell, mild abdominal cramps Took 10-day round of 10MG pills, worked great, only had a headache and felt a bit bloat-y, but nothing serious. After I finished the course, have been experiencing occasional nausea triggered by smell-sensitivity. Nausea escalated to actual vomiting after being off provera for four days, and had some broken capillaries in face from that lovely experience, but no serious damage. So far the nausea/vomiting has been the worse side-effect, and is more of an annoyance than anything else. But if it makes my cycle be normal again, I can deal. Will update once everything settles down. F 31 10 days
