 1  Irregular bleeding after miscarriage AWFUL, AWFUL experience. Truly terrible. My bleeding stopped while I was taking the drug but as soon as I stopped, I had the worst period I have ever had (And I've had some bad ones). I had to go to the ER because my blood pressure dropped and I was in so much pain. Now, over a month later, I have not been able to sleep either since the Provera. I will never, ever, take this drug again. F 35 10 days

 4  thick uterine walls I read many horror stories on here - so I thought I'd add one that wasn't so bad. My breasts were tender (and a little enlarged), I got dizzy a three times (rested and was fine), and most family agreed I was easily agitated (pms - like). I am trying to get pregnant and since there seems to be no other problems, my doctor thought this could help. I am currently on my period (my doctor timed the provera perfectly and I started at my regular cycle time). My period is different - a little heavier and more cramping that usual, but nothing Tylenol doesn't t stop. Overall, nothing scary. I was initially worried about taking provera, but so far so good.

 3  No period for over two years Mild nausea I took this to stimulate a period. I had not had my period in several years. I had no issues when taking the med. I got my period three days after I stopped the Provera. It is the heaviest, most painful period I have ever experienced. I bled through a heavy overnight pad every hour for five days. The pain was more like contractions than cramps. It is now ten days later and, although reduced, I still have a flow heavy enough that I have to wash the bed sheets every morning, even though I have started on a new hormone now to make the bleeding stop.

 3  Irregular Periods PMS and I've never had PMS symptoms before when my period used to be regular. Very nauceous I didn't have a period for 9 months and then I had a non stop light period for 4 months.I took the pills for 10 days and had very little spotting inbetween and felt pretty good. I had a very light period the day after I was finished taking the pills and have a the heaviest period I've ever had for the last 4 days. Bleeding through a super plus playtex tampon every hour which is causing me to double it up with a pad. Hope I stop bleeding very soon. -Generic brand of provera- F 21 10 days

 3  late/no period, trying to conceive1 Was fine the first 2 days then got worse. Can't sleep at all even though I'm extremely fatigued. Loss of patience which has made me a lil moody. I did get my period and it was horrible! I've had a miscarriage before and this was worse than that! I felt like my uterus was falling out of my vagina! It did make me have a period like I was supposed too, but it came with a lot of other symptoms. I don't think I'll use it again. F 22 5 days

 2  2 month long period Exhaustion, painful joints, hungry. heavy bleeding, cramping, lack of concentration. Prescribed after a visit to the ER for a period that would not stop coupled with dizziness, weakness, and confusion. It is supposed to stop the bleeding and then re-regulate my cycle? All it has done so far is make the bleeding worse, hoping this will work though. I can't take bleeding anymore! Have an appt with gyno on Wed. F 30 10 days

 2  No period for months due to stress MOOD SWINGS, cold chills, hot flashes, dry eyes, excessive sweating, sharp pain in calves, extreme fatigue yet inability to sleep, sore breasts, pimples, dull abdominal pain, bloated, weird dreams, anxiety. It started my period after a week (which was the purpose) but I felt awful on this hormone, like nothing was normal and everything seemed to happen... slower? For lack of a better word. Not like myself at all. I felt crazy. F 25 10 days

History
 1  PCOS- no period for 6 months hot flashes, nausea, anxiety attacks, mood swings, crying spells for no reason, sleeplessness, horrible cramps after day 8, spotting My gyn prescribed Provera after I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Ihave always had irregular periods, but became concerned when I did not get one for 6 months. I did get my period a day after stopping the Provera. I had an extremely heavy flow and terrible, terrible cramps. It is now day 11 and I am still having a moderate flow. I was expecting that it would be bad, but it has been worse than I could imagine. The side effects were awful, and I have not felt well during my period either. I just want the bleeding to stop. I would rather have high testerone and deal with the effects of PCOS then take Provera again. The last three weeks have been the most miserable of my life. F 19 10 days

 3  Period wouldn't stop Weight gain, hungry all the time! I started taking Provera after being on my pd for almost 5 months straight. The dr said my ul was thickened and a cyst on my ovary could be the cause of this. He prescribed me Provera 10mg for 10 days and then he said I would have a very heavy period and then be on birth control to regulate. Day 3 of the med I started cramping in my left side and couldnít sleep from all the pain. I am in a horrible mood and its day 4. I hope this is all worth it I didnít know it was going to be this bad! Has anyone else taken this medicine for this problem, and did it work? F 27 10 days

 1  Regulate period After day 2 - I decided to quit. Had dry mouth, low back pain, sudden headaches, horrible diarrhea, vomiting, dizziness, tender abdomen, sore breasts, and was in bed the whole day on day two. Would rather have NO period than feel like that again. Was on vacation out of the country at the time and there was NO way I was going to go through the rest of my vacation like that. I would have had not work either if I was at home. There has got to be a better alternative! Won't take it again! Not sure what I did to my body though - taking two than quit!? F 30 10 days

 4  PCOS, no period well over a year Moody, easily irritated, anxious and really paranoid at times. Small persisting headache. Side effects were easier to deal with when i was taking the pill at night before bed, thankfully they went away right after the last pill. Definitely worked for its intended purpose, period started a day after my last dose. VERY heavy period but little to no cramping. F 26 10 days

 4  Anovulation, heavy 6 week period Not many side effects, I do think I am hungrier than usual though. This med has helped tremendously! I used to dread my period because it would last forever and be extremely heavy. I would go through a Tampax Pearl ULTRA size in 15 minutes. I was buying tampons twice a week. I finally went to the doctor, found out my hemoglobin was 7.2 and I was amazingly still upright. I now take them at the 25 day of the month for 5 days and my period comes shortly afterward and lasts only a few days. F 36 3 months

 4  No period for 2 years Cramping, mood swings, dizziness, increased sex drive, insomnia, loss of sleep- tossing and turning, wierd dreams I took the generic version of Provera, and it worked like it should have. Took it for 10 days, and my period came 2 days after stopping it, and I'm on my second day of my period. The loss of sleep was the worst side effect of this pill, everything went back to normal after I was done with the cycle... but I'm still cramping pretty bad. I'm just happy it did it's job!
