 5  Induce cycle-PCOS and ttc Weird dreams, heavy period for 2 days, severe cramping. This is my second dose, and both times I've started af within 4 days of my last pill. AF lasts 6 days and only 2 of them are heavy, which is better than my 4 month long cycles that I have normally. I think provera is amazing, and not everyone has horror stories from it. F 27 10 days

 5  Bleeding/Spotting for 3 months Weird dreams, headache at first, energy I had a miscarriage in January and had a DNC performed. I started bleeding 5 weeks later, as predicted by my doctor. After 2 weeks I started spotting/bleeding off and on for the next 2 months. I was prescribed provera to shed my lining because it was kind of thick. The first month I took 20mg/day for 10 days. I stopped spotting immediately but then started back bleeding 3 days later. i was told to continue the dosage. I did continue bleeding for about 2 weeks. The next month I started spotting again and only took 10mg/day for 10 days. Now I'm into the next month and NO SPOTTING!! I hope it did the trick because I would love to have a baby! I was also scared to take the pills because of all that I read online about the horrible side effects but I can honestly say I had 1 bad day, which was a headache! I would recommend this to anyone going through bleeding/spotting (annoying) problems! F 30 10 days

 4  To regulate my cycle/TTC Acne, vivd dreams, small hot flashes I have to admit, I was very scared to take this medication after ready the many comments about it. I was very nervous about the nausea, since I am my own boss and cant really "take time off" if I was ill. Luckily for me, I had no nausea at all. I took the pill at dinner as recommended by my Dr. One day I forgot and took it a bit after without food and felt a slight wave of nausea, but nothing severe and it only lasted about 30 mins. At night I had some hot flashes, I ended up sleeping with the AC and the fan on. I recommend taking it at night with dinner. I have trouble skin to begin with, so the extra hormones from the Provera caused a wicked acne breakout. Nothing that can't be concealed and the pros totally out wiegh the cons. I am took Provera so I would get my period, we are TTC and without a cycle clearly its impossible....went 3 months without a period. I was on 10MG/day for 5 days. My Dr. said I would get my period within 3 days after taking the last dose...but I didn't actually get my period until 5 days after the last dose. And once I did get it, it was like any other regular period. Fairly light/medium flow the first two days and light the last 2 days. No cramping, nothing unusal. The Provera did what it was supposed to do with very little side affects at all. I now can start taking Clomid in hopes of getting pregnant! If you are worried about taking it, just do it- everyone is different and you might not have any side effects at all F 27 1 days

Well, I took it last night and guess what? I have a huge headache today! Took it for 10 days as prescribed. Went off and 4 days later a period came. Works just as indicated. F 29 10 days

 5  Endometrial hyperplasia Just wanted to assure women reading about this drug that not everyone has unpleasant side effects. I was terrified to start the drug based upon what I read online, but I have had no side effects whatsoever. I actually feel better than I have in years! I was a little extra tired for the first couple of days but I'm not sure that the fatigue wasn't due to my extreme worrying. If your doctor prescribes this medication for you don't panic that you're going to experience side effects. I'm extremely sensitive to medications and again, have had none. Hard for me to rate my satisfaction because I won't know for a couple of months whether it solved my problem! I feel better though so I'm rating it a "5"! F 50 2.5 weeks

 1  anovulatory cycles & spotting I have anovulatory cycles (don't ovulate), so I spot and bleed for about two weeks before my cycle begins for real. By the time I finally stop all bleeding, it's usually been three weeks. As my cycles come every 30-35 days, I have 10-14 days of no bleeding before I start spotting again. So, my doctor prescribed Provera 10mg/day for the last 12 days of my "cycle" for three months (so 12 days out of each month). I completed the first month's 12 days. During those 12 days, I felt fine (but kept spotting as the doctor suspected I might the first month of dosage). Then, I started my "real" cycle, as predicted with Provera, which stopped after about four days. THEN, I started getting PMS symptoms, along with much edema in my legs. This concerned me a great deal, because I have chronic kidney disease. So, the edema indicated to me that my kidneys had in some way been greatly stressed by the Provera. In addition, I had much increased IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), a problem I've learned to keep under control but went crazy after the progesterone treatment. So, I had communicated with my doctor, who sometime later in the year will help me think of some other plan for treating my anovulatory cycles, if necessary. I think I would have similar problems with any type of progesterone treatment, perhaps even creams, and not just the Provera...but I'm not sure. I will be very glad when menopause begins.
