 4  To induce a period While on the pills I didn't experience any side effects- but the day after for a few days my breasts were slightly sore with a slight bloating and little acne- Oh and vivid dreams, but I really didn't have a terrible time taking this drug. I admit I was scared that it was not going to work because it took 11 days for my period to come after 4.5 months! Today I actually started to have a light flow and I am praying to God that I will have a full flow in the next couple days, but if not, that is fine! It did its job;o) It feels good to be feeling cramps again because it has been so long!!! F 30 5 days

 2  Bleeding constantly for past 6 week Have developed what appears to be an allergic reaction, it began with strep throat then a nasty inflamed rash appeared on my neck, the rash is lumpy and incredibly itchy. Also experiencing mood swings and tiredness. Back at doctors on Thursday so hopefully there is another option. I would rather have the bleeding than the rash! F 37 11 days

 4  Absent Period Due TO PCOS And TTC Headaches, increased weeing, stomach cramps with pressure, achy joints, increased vaginal discharge and painful boobs I took Provera for 3 months on a trot and it done the job every time, I began to bleed around day 3-5 after my last pill. The first month, I had severe bleeding, but apparently was expected after going a year without a bleed, the 2 cycles after got lighter. I then had a couple months without taking provera to see if I naturally menstrated, but unfortunately I didnt, so here I am again on my first cycle of 3, currently day 4, so I should, fingers crossed have a period in around 5 days time. Then I can continue with a course of Clomid. All in all, I am happy with the meds, as they do as they are ment to, So I dont mind the side effects, after all the side effects stop as soon as you finish the dose. Good luck ladies xxx F 22 5 days

 4  POCS, ovluation mood swings, insomnia, itchy for the whole body, weird thinkings, pee more often with small amount i take 10mg in 10 days in a roll. My period usually starts 10 days after I stopped the pill. It has brown spots for a few days, then there's a real flow of blood for 3 to 4 more days. Doctor asks me to take climiphene on day 3 to 7. Then I got ovulation on day 17 and 20 for different months. But I didn't respond to climiphene in the 3rd month. I asked doctor to have another kind of pill for ovulation because i have a horrible mood swing. I will try Letrozile on this month. If it's not working, I will go to IVF. F 32 10 days

 3  No period for a year Insomnia, migraines, nausea, bloating, anxiety, super moody, angry and happy. It was a horrible exprience. I took it only for one day and then called doctor the next day and told her that I could not do it. I only slept for one hour that night. I thought I was going crazy. The doctor said that I still need to take something to start my period. She called in some other progesterone pills (natural) and I was supposed to take them for 10 days. She told me to wait 3 days before starting the new drug. On the third day without taking the new drug I started my peroid. (it only took me one Provera to start it). Next month I did not want to take it and istead the doctor gave me a natural progesterone cream from compound pharmacy. Used it for 2 weeks .3 ml, made me feel calm, happy, relaxed, my stomach worked great! I love this stuff!!! Then got my peroid right on time from the cream! I have to do it for 3 months and then stop. No side effects, safe and makes me feel WONDERFUL! I have had normon I would not recommend provera. F 32 5 days

 1  To control heavy bleeding / clottin I have been bleeding non stop, since Sept 15, This is Oct. 12th which is when I started taking it, per the Drs orders. At least before Sept 15, my heavy periods only lasted 7 days! Extreme hunger. Breasts are engorged and in pain. Extreme cramps, worse clotting. This is crazy, but Dr says, "Stay the course" The course has one more week, and then Im done. How can a med be designed to both INDUCE a period AND control a period? It can't. F 52 21 days

 4  get 1 period a year, and ttc dizziness, minor cramps, a little more moody than normal, and a little more tiered. after reading so many bad side effects from other ppl i hesitated to start for 3 months, after i decided to just go for it i was surprised that i did not have any major side effects i still have a few days to go before my period should start but hoping it wont be as bad as most people have said it was for them. I would say just go for it, every person is different and it might not be so bad after all. i was mostly worried about gaining weight, i didnt feel an increase in appetite and did not gain even a pound..knock on wood!

 3  To regulate periods/control flow Gained 10 lbs. I started taking provera in March of 2009 because I was having very heavy periods with severe cramping(like miscarriage) and they were becoming very irregular. My doctor suggested I try provera for a few months and it should straighten everything out. I took it for a few months(2 or 3) and decided to get off of it because I was concerned with the side effects that other women have had. Once again, I began having heavy bleeding and cramping, so I got back on it. Never did my doctor tell me I should only stay on this for 6 months. In late July, I took my usual dose(1 pill a day the last 10 days of the month). My period started for a few days, then stopped. It started again around the 15th of the month and stayed until I started taking the provera around the 20th of August. Now its the 20th of September and I still have not started, but I have been cramping off and on for several days. I had my annual check up with my gyn today, and he told me that Provera thins out your uterine lining and it's probably too thin to have a period now. He said not to take them anymore(hadn't planned on it) and in a few months he'll check my hormone levels to see what is going on. Now I'm wishing I hadn't taken them for so long because of the cancer and other risks associated with them. I am anxious to see if I will actually be able to lose the weight that I gained because I have never had so much trouble losing weight before. F 46 18 months

 4  Start period, ttc very hungry, tired, angry This is the second time I have had to take Provera. I have been ttc for 11 months and have very irregular periods. Side effects arent as bad the second time around. The first time I was moodier and felt kind of crazy! I am on day 6 now. Last time I took it I started my period the day after the last pill and then proceeded with Clomid. Hopefully this will be the last time I have to take it!!! F 23 10 days

 4  Frequent spotting between periods It decreased my anxiety to almost non existent. I felt very calm overall, but would anger easily when provoked. Initial hot flash when the pill kicked in. I'm AMAZED to have such a great effect with decreasing anxiety considering I started treatment expecting to feel worse! Any trade off is worth that and I haven't had many while taking Provera. I did get irritated easily and an occastional hot flash, some initial tiredness but that disappeared after a couple of days. I've requested a Rx for anxiety treatment. My obgyn is considering it but wants to see how I feel once finished the medication and how I cycle through. F 47 10 days

 4  No period for over 2 years Mood swings, tender breasts, irritability, slightly tired Yesterday was my last dose. Side effects didnt start till day 4 and were not to bad considering I took an Ativan when my nerves got the best of me. Had I not had Ativan, I may have killed someone! I had cramps on day 5 for all of an hour or two. I have started spotting tonight and am cramping like nobodies business! Hopefully this means a period is on the way! I will be happy to report an update in a few weeks to see how it goes now that I am finished the drug. F 26 10 days
