 4  To create a period due to PCOS. I had strong cramps on several occasions (which is pretty common when associated with a period) and excessive gas. I was prescribed Provera and Metformin after being diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). The provera was prescribed to induce a period so that I can get somewhat regulated and begin Seasonique. I finished my last pill today and I'm hoping my period starts soon because the OBGYN said if not, I will have to get a D & C. The Metformin is used to regulate hormones, insulin & to assist in fertility with women who suffer from PCOS. F 26 10 days

 2  Ovarian cyst No real side effects at all. I'm a little more tired than usual, but that can be caused by the cyst (hurts so bad I can't sleep some times). Most of my "side effects" are purely from my original condition, but not from taking this medicine. The doc originally put me on this in an effort to make me have a full period to (hopefully) make the cyst minimize itself naturally. Have taken the meds for the 10 days, and nothing yet. F 30 10 days

 2  To induce a period/ttc Very moody,angry After finishing my 10 days I started spotting 3 days later. The 4th and 5th day the spotting continued but was very dark brown. I was supposed to have a sono the 3rd day of my period. I called my doctor to see when I should come because I hadnt had a period just spotting he said that it could take up to 14days but to call him on Monday either way. Im so scared that I may have ruined my chances of giving my son a sibling because of the depo. Anyone out there having this problem? F 30 10 days

 1  pcos Unbearable cramps, tender breasts, increased appettite, moodiness, burning feeling in my vag. - makes me wanna pee all the time, back pain,dry mouth. AGAIN, EXTREMELY PAINFUL CRAMPS! I just took my third pill yesterday. I woke up in the middle of my sleep tonight due to cramps. It's still painful, worst cramps ever. I don't remember the last time i cried cause of cramps, probably never, but the cramps due to provera is the worst. If i had known that this would happen, i wouldnt start taking this drug. Im seriously considering stopping taking this drug or asking my gyn for an alternative. Im scared though of the bleeding that will take place after taking these pills. I don't want to go through extreme PMS because i have a really busy schedule. I hate this drug! F 23 10 days

 3  Long, crampy periods So far, headaches and weight gain around my middle. All of a sudden I realized I had gained about 8 pounds out of no where! I am hoping that when my period starts it will not be horrible. The point of taking this is to get my periods to be more manageable not worse. F 32 10 days

 2  heavy and painful periods Irritability, dry mouth, depression, excessive crying, anxiety, sore breasts, weight gain I took this with the advice of my doctor since I was on my period for 8 or 9 days. I was supposed to start on Sunday and still no period. Guess it worked to reduce the period but I didn't think that would mean I would not get it at all. Supposed to take it for the next 2 months but I'm not going to do this. Too many side effects. F 38 5 days

 3  To regualate my period and ttc Dry Dry Dry Vagina . Unable to have intercourse with my husband because of severe dryness. He said I was as dry as a ham bone! Extreme moodiness. and anger at the drop of a hat with loved ones. and pretty much anybody. Tiredness a few days where I felt so tired that I would dread doing anything constructive. Weepy about ttc and hopeless about ever finding hope in having another child. I took Provera for 10 days and it DID work. I got my period a day or two later. I was moody tired, dry in my vagina . My husband said I was so dry I felt like a freaking desert. I will continue to take the provera so that I can try to maintain a period and try to have a baby F 27 10 days

 1  Heavy periods won't stop I took this medicine to stop my bleeding after my pregnancy; I had to take it for 3 years. I gained weight so much that I doubled from where I started, I was moody, hot flushes, couldn't walk - used to waddle like a penguin, the periods stopped altogether and now even after yrs of stopping, I don't get periods at all now. I was pushed into early menopause at age 31. Do not take this medication for more than a couple of days. It gave me early menopause at 31 - stay away from it!! F 38 3 years

 1  myoma - to control heavy bleeding Dr prescribed it during my period to stop heavy bleeding, but the bleeding is just getting worse. It seems like i have a hemorrage and it doesnt stop... Called the Dr and said to keep on taking them... Crying all the time, sweaty, weird dreams, difficult to sleep, tired... I would find something else to try but this... this will only terminate the iron in your blood and will end up with a really bad anemia... F 28 6 days

 1  to get a period I was super emotional after starting this drug and all I wanted to do was eat. After I finished the 7day dose I was so tired all the time I had to call into work. I was hot and sweaty at night and gained at least 5 pounds. Its now day 6 off the provera and still no period, just frustration and a favorite pair of jeans split and thrown away. I will never take this drug again. F 29 7 days

 1  Stop period that i had for 3 weeks Loss of appetite, extreme fatigue and isomnia. Could not sleep through the night for days. Headache, moodiness, unhappy, antisocial, weird dreams that defy imaginiation. My doctor recommended i take this medicine to stop my period which had lasted for 3 weeks. I was prescribed 10 pills for 10 days and on the day my period stopped, I was instructed to stop taking the meds. Well after 7 days my period stopped and when I discontinued taking the pills all the side effects began to happen. The extreme fatigue without being able to fall into a deep sleep took a toll on me. I had to leave work because i couldn't concentrate and i felt unhappy. This is a medicine I would not wish anyone to take unless it is a life or death situation. Please ask your doctor for other alternatives before agreeing to take this medication. F 25 10 days

 4  PCOS/no periods/trying to get preg. I immediately had a migraine headache that lasted for two days. I had cramping in my left side along with stomach cramps. Nausea and dizziness. Sweating, sometimes feeling hot other times feeling cold and still sweating bullets. Moodiness, irritated easily. I took the generic form of Provera along with Metformin for my PCOS. I did not have a period for over a year and a half before taking this medication. My period started approx. 3 days after my last pill. The first day of my period I had a light to normal flow. The second day was heavy with some small clots and cramping. As my period continues I have had alot of cramping and an increased amount of clots. The flow is very heavy. I have been using super plus tampons along with an overnight pad. I had to stay home from work today because of the cramping and nausea. I hope all this pain is worth it. I just have to keep thinking of my final goal, a beautiful baby, then all this will have been worth it. I am glad I finally got a period, but I can't wait for it to be over. F 25 5 days

 2   no noticeable side effects but the reason i was taking the prescription was to delay my period. it didn't work i was told i wouldn't get my period while on this, to take it a few days before my period was due.. i was on vacation and was worried about getting my period (because of other side effects that usually come with my period),, so i found out about this, took it and my period still came.. but the period wasn't severe. when i saw my period the first day, i stopped provera and i had a normal period. just don't know why i still got it when it was supposed to stop it. oh well. i generally have no period problems it is always on time, but i have crohns disease and sometimes get crohns symptoms around hormonal changes...otherwise, my period is perfectly fine.

 4  REALLY irregular! trying for babY During the 10 days I had no appetite what so ever and was tired all the time, other than that I was fine. However, after the 10 days were over and I started my period I had hardcore PMS! I was moody, aggitated, and would RANDOMLY burst out into tears over the most ridiculous things. I have never had PMS like that. Overall...it seemed to do what it was supposed to do. The day after end of the 10 days I had very light spotting, the next day I had more spotting, by the 3rd day I had a full on flow. My period lasted for about 6 days. Now I'm during what's supposed to be my ovulation time and I'm spotting brownish/pinkish discharge. Am I trying to start another period?? Or is this what happens during ovulation. I don't know how ovulation is supposed to work because I never ovulate, this is why my periods have always been so irregular. F 20 10 days
