 4  Excess. bleeding- like grape jelly insomnia, weight gain, mood swings I had heavy clotted bleeding (looked like grape jelly)for 3 months before fainting & being taken to the ER. Admitted due to extremely low hematocrit & hemoglobin, resulting in a blood transfusion of 2 units. Doc put me on provera & iron supplements, awaiting a hysterectomy in 3 weeks. I've gained 10 lbs. in 30 days and dread the next 3 weeks of taking this medication. However, I have FINALLY stopped bleeding and will take all the side effects, even weight gain, over feeling like a hostage to the gushings. I couldn't leave my house without fear, and I was tired of living that way. Looking forward to 4/16 :) F 45 30 days

 4  Hormone imbalance While I am taking the medicine, I have bad PMS. It seems worse that usual. I don't really like the way I feel. I am taking this medication because of a hormone imbalance. My body's lack of this hormone caused a pretty significant buildup of my uterine wall, which resulted in a continuous period last fall that lasted over a month. The drug has been effective in balancing things. I am nearing menopause and wonder just how long I will have to take this stuff. F 52 10 days

 3  Heavy bleeding for 6 months Cramping, always cold, bloating, mood swings,flu like symptoms, heavy bleeding first two months on the pill. First 3 months was horrible. Had D&C (Due to simple hyperplasia)midway through and still continued to bleed while on provera. Bled for 6 months overall. Stayed the course and finally stopped bleeding 3 weeks ago. Still have slight side effects, but body is getting used to pill. Went in for check up and uterine lining is very thin. Hope it stays that way! Dr. said sometimes it does take awhile to kick in.

 4  Irregular Periods No side affects, I took the pill at night, so I exerienced nothing while taking them. However my menstral symptoms incude: Cramping, itchy vagina, bloating, moody, irritable, slight loss of appetite, heavy bleeding, period lasting over 7 days, and sore breasts (got worse on day 8 strangely) I was supposed to take the pills for 12 days, however I went out of town and forgot my meds and made it through maybe 8 or 9 days. However 3-4 days after stopping them,I got my period. I was happy because I hadn't had a period since the summer and had experienced light spotting that would last for 5-10 days every 2 or so weeks. Doc said it was because my unterine walls were shedding slightly due to sexual activity and a build up due to no period. So I hopped on the chance to shed my uterine walls so no more spotting could occur. So...the first few days of my period were normal, but the 3-6th day of my period was rediculously heavy! I wont give too many disgusting details though. It is now the 8th day and I am still bleeding lightly, and it should stop hoepfully tomorrow. I have an eager boyfriend waiting for me lol. My only complaint was how long this period lasted. 8 days so far...can you believe it? Oh well, complaining wont make it stop. Just hope I have no more spotting! F 23 12 days

 3  To stop constant period > 3 months. Very heavy bleeding, severe cramping, vivid dreams, constipation, bloating. After almost a year of no period, my body naturally started and did not want to stop. I was prescribed 10 mg for first 10 days of each month. By the 8th dose I was in agonizing pain (I almost went to the ER is was so bad - but it stopped after about 3 hours). Then I started bleeding heavier than I have in my entire life. I was going through a pad every 30-45 minutes and was a prisoner to the bathroom. This lastet for 36 hours and is now lighter, but not stopped yet. I did not take the 10th dose and I don't think I can go through this once a month. F 36 10 days

 3  No periods for 7 mos from thyroid I am on day #6 and so far the only side effects have been very vivid dreams, some nightmares. I also have estrogen dominance, so I'm hoping to lose weight. My Endo said this would help due to high estrogen & testosterone. I've noticed that I have no appetite - maybe coincidence? F 36 10 days

 2  4 month long period Extreme cramping, now a ton of clotting and heavy bleeding I had been on my period for 4 months and I was getting extremely annoyed with it so I went to the ER and the PA prescribed me Provera. She told me that it would stop my period and that was all she told me. Well 2 days ago I woke up and I had bled through my pad and my clothes and it was everywhere I went into the bathroom to find a huge amount of clots in my pad so I changed and put 2 pads in my underwear and went to the ER again. The doctor then proceeded to tell me that I was supposed to bleed after taking the Provera. I am so upset that she didn't tell me and I am still bleeding very heavily. I would have rather not taken it and kept bleeding like normal because atleast it was light. Now it's heavy, clotting, and cramping like crazy! I will never take this again! F 26 5 days
