 3  No period for 3 months Bloating, dizziness, headaches, crying spells, weird vivid dreams I hadn't had a period for 3 months, scince the end of December. I took the first pill, and got brown spotting later that same night! The next day I started to bleed a very very light period for 4 more days, then it stopped completely on day 5 of the pill. I called my doctor because you are not supposed to bleed until AFTER you have completed all of your doses, he told me to continue the course of the pills and I should start another heavier more normal period once my body withdraws from them. I really hope this works. Today was my last day so now I'm waiting it out hoping this pill will do it's job. F 19 10 days

 4  No period, Needed to get my period. At times felt irritated and had mild cramps. Other than that no other side effect. Last time I had my period was 1/27. My doc prescribed Provera. I started the generic brand called Medroxyprogesterone on 3/14 for 10 days. I just recently got my period on 4/1. I feel relieved because I get to see my period again. However, my period is every light. Its not as heavy as it used to be. I am glad a pill can do this for me since I have irregular periods. Now, I am gonna take the bc pill. F 35 10 days

 5  Period 10days late nothing really. I love this stuff, I hardly felt any side effects. My second day on this pill and my period came in less than 24 hours. This is really great stuff. I have a small cyst and being nervous did not help. Provera did help a lot I love this pills regardless of how people feel. I was 12days late with my period when I took this pill and got my period started again. F 26 10 days

 5  Extremely heavy bleeding X 3 weeks Headaches, some dizziness, vivid dreams... Miracle drug...I bled for 23 days STRAIGHT with very large clots. Provera stopped the bleeding immediately. I'm feeling a little anxious because I took my last pill today and wondering if the bleeding will start again....I sure hope not, that was horrible. Let's just say, I had to wash clothes and sheets everyday for 23 days!! :( F 43 10 days

 4  PCOS - 6 cm cyst on right ovary I can't really say there are any. I have many medical issues and take other medicines. My reg. gyn put me on Provera to get my periods started. However I wasn't taking it monthly. I was only taking it every few months. I have a 6 cm cyst on my right ovary (the only one left). My dr. had to do 3 ultrasounds over a 6 mth prd. Finally with him he said it wasn't working and to immediately get a hysterectomy. I was scared. I am 30, a mother of a beautiful 5 yr old girl and she will be the only child I conceive. I went on to another dr at a much better hospital. I told him what was going on he checked me and diagnosed me with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. He schedule all kinds of blood work and an ultrasound. I have been on the medicine for 2 months now and it is really helping. I have to take it 2 more times then go back to see my dr. It is really going to tick my old dr off when my new dr comes to the same office and I start walking into the new dr's office. It used to be my periods were normal but now they are not. I am overweight and that is a big issue. I am actually healthy other than a few things. I hope you all get the help you need to feel better. F 30 10 days

 3  Irregular/ Stop period Extreme back pain, joint pain, and tired. I could sleep really good, but had wierd dreams. Moody at times, and sentimental. My period stopped on day 5. I had my period for 2 weeks with heavy flow before I saw the doc. My periods were not regular, usually 33-35 days apart, sometimes longer. Never on a set date. Have infertility, but no set diagnosis. PCOS is never ruled out, or given as a diagnosis. Did IVF and IUI without success. I hope my period comes normal after Provera. F 33 10 days

 5  heavy periods and endometriosis I had little side effects and no weight gain. this is what i call the miracle bvirth control. Although I never took it for birth control it completely stopped my period and my heavy cramping where when i was not taking it I was in emergency due to the cramps. There are no definative studies wither way that this drug makes you gain weight its all what you eat and then blame it on the drug. I would recommend this drug to anyone. This has saved me numerous trips to the hospital and countless surgeries for my endometrisosis. I think it is great and have absolutley nothing to complain about it. Love it. F 28 6 years
