 3  To have a period (menstruation) 2nd day and 3rd day: Horrible Irritation. I am not the kind of person to just be mad for no reason. But the only way I can describe this is a constant PMS for 2 days. I was irritated at everything and everyone I couldn't control it. I was pretty sleepy taking it for some reason so I took my pill at night since I thought it was making me drowsy during the day. My doctor was worried that I do not have periods. I told her I couldn't tell you the last time I had a really good period. She was worried about Cancer and told me I needed to have a period every 3 months. I am suppose to take Provera every other month to make sure I start having a regular cycle. The drug does work, but be ready for some side effects. Explain to your family what you might experience before taking it. I told them what the doc told me about the mood swings before I took it so whenever I was out of control they would look at me and say "the pill" and I would stop being stupid. I hope this review helps. F 29 14 days

 4  PCOS I have PCOS so I have irregular periods. I had a fake period with constant slow bleeding that didn't finish for over 2 weeks. After taking Provera for 10 days, I got a real period 2 days after I finished the 10 day supply. It has been one of my most severe periods in years. The blood flow is excessive and very chunky. The pain is incredible. The scary part is that I wouldn't even call it heavy bleeding but loosing buckets of blood or hemorrhaging. I have been extremely sleepy, irritable, and hungry. If the bleeding doesn't stop after the weekend, I will call my Dr. For now, I have been changing about a pad every 30 minutes 24 hours a day and losing sleep. I wear DEPENDS grandma underwear in addition to pads at night for extra protection. It gets the job done by stopping a previous period and then bringing on a real period. For women with PCOS we have periods that occur without ovulation so Provera helps bring on a "real" period. F 34 10 days

 4  PCOS/To induce period before Clomid Weight Gain, Moody, IRRITABLE, tired This is my 2nd time taking Provera. While this medicine works for me, I do not like it. I am irritable and moody. I cry at the drop of a hat. I've gained weight, about 7/8 lbs in the last 3 months taking this and clomid. I got my period last month on my own, so I didn't have to take provera. Had an abnormally shaped cyst in my left ovary this month, so Dr. put me on provera and will do an ultrasound before clomid to make sure cyst is gone. F 32 10 days

 3  no period for over a year Hair growth,increased appetite and sleepyness. My period came about two weeks after I finished the pill, lasted for about seven days. The flow was moderate not much cramping. In all it wasn't that bad. It's been about two months now and I haven't seen my period since the last time so I think I might have to go back to my doc to go back on the pill. F 23 10 days

Had a period while I was taking it. then after i stopped taking it i never got a period for just over 2 months. now i started taking it again because my period is so heavy i don't want to become anemic again. The reason I stopped taking it was the depression. F 51 3 months

 4  Induce absent period Insomnia the first 2 nights, hardened breasts but no pain, slight weight gain. The insomnia wasn't that bad because I still *felt* like I got enough sleep. I just wasn't tired. Besides that, any other symptoms really weren't that annoying. Withdrawal bleeding occurred 6 days after last dose, was somewhat heavy and lasted 7 days. Now (about a week and a half after bleeding subsided), I have bleeding again with many clots. I would still recommend Provera to women trying to induce an absent period because it is doing what it is designed to do; to force the uterine lining to shed. I expected side effects and after effects so, like any other medication, take Provera with caution. I believe the benefits strongly outweighed the side effects. F 25 10 days

BUT now that I've taken Provera I'm happy for those 10 days, I actually lose a little weight from not eating us out of house and home, and I actually want to go and do things instead of being depressed!!

 3  No period for 4 months Mood swings, agitated, sore breast, no interest in sex and vivid dreams. I took the last dose on Oct 21st and no period yet. But if it does help bring it back i guess it overways the side effects. F 27 10 days
