 4  PCOS Bloating, gas, cramps in the days following the last pill up until the arrival of my period seven days later. This was the second time I took Provera to induce a period after a few months without a period. The first time I took the 5 x 10 mg course, my period came the day after I took the last pill. Expecting the same the second time around, I was alarmed when my period didn't come and I experienced the side effects listed (I never have PMS). My period finally arrived seven days after taking the last pill. F 29 5 days

 4  pcos, no periods & ttc First 3 days were fine, started getting cramp and had diarrhea on the third night, by day 4 & 5 I had mild cramp but nothing compared to what I was expecting. Stopped taken provera and 3 days later I started my period which is very heavy and having to change every hour and have been a bit moody! My periods have always been irregular and was told by my doctor that it would regualate on its own. Been with my boyfriend for 6 years and never used any contraception so I got referred to a gyno after many tests they found I had pcos in both ovaries. I started provera straight away for 5 days and 3 days after I stopped I got my first period which is very heavy, today is my second day and I started taken clomid 50mg so keeping my fingers crossed.

 4  PCOS-no TOM since giving birth 07/9 My period lasted 10 days, which was to be expected since it had been 16 months since I had given birth. I was emotional but given the circumstances in my life that was to be expected. I also had nightmares quite regularly while on the medication which isn't normal for me. My period started 4-5 days after my last dose. I took the generic form of Provera. F 31 10 days

 3  for irregular periods & ovary cyst spotting i was given this after not having regualr periods since march 2010 until 8-2010. i ended up in the er due to several stomach pain. which turned out the i had a ovary cyst 2.5 cm. My ob says birth control is not a opinion since i have history of headaches and it could cause me to have a stroke. so i was given provera 10mg. and i am suppost to take it on the first of each month. i started yesterday. so far i am just spotting, and still having my severa pain ( like i am having a baby minus the baby). i have been having nausea, and severa pain before i even started the provera. i was told this would help get my cycles regular and hopefully help the cyst. i am keeping my fingers crossed. i dont know if i am suppost to get my cycles while taking provera or after taking it. so far i am spotting brown blood not a lot just enough to wear a pad. i have to take it for 10 days twice a day. so i dont know if this is my period or if i will get another period after i take my last pill. i guess i will find out soon enough.

 3  Slow progression precancerous cells Large blood clots, extreme pain in ovaries/uterus, heavy bleeding Hoping this will slow progression of precancerous cells in uterine lining so I can begin Clomid and other fertility treatments. I have been TTC for three years. I have PCOS, and I had uterine polyps removed prior to beginning the medication. F 30 30 days

 3  No period I have not had a period since November because of an imbalanced hormone so my Dr prescribed provera to regulate my period. I am on day 8 and I am experiencing bloating, nausea, chronic fatigue, depression, mood swings, leg cramps and swelling in the feet and fingers. I have not completed my first dose as yet, so I cannot give a fair rating. I would however give an update as soon as I get results. F 36 10 days

 3  Induce period - trying to conceive Taken once a day at dinner time, made my heart race, tired and achy during the day, insomnia at night, constantly hungry, short fuse, irritable, mild constipation, BLOATED, over all not great. I just finished the provera, and I am waiting for my period to start. This is my second time taking it and while its not great, in the end I know it will be worth it. I don't ovulate/menstruate regularly so I took the provera to start my period so that I can take clomid. It reminds me of some bad periods when I was younger but definitely something I can handle.

 1  to jump start my absent peroid Intense-mind numbing cramps, nausea Day 7 of taking this pill I was hit with mind numbing, cramps that was brought on with nausea. This intense side affect has tortured me the last 7 days and nights. I'm 3 days after the end of the 10 day pill and still no period. The Dr called in 800mg of Ibuprofen and it doesn't even touch the pain. Midol complete, even in two dosages at a time, doesn't touch the pain. I will never do this again and do not recommend it at all. F 28 10 days

 4  No period after weaning 6 wks prior Sore nipples, hot flashes around days 6-8, bloating, and very high sex drive - actually became enamored with my brother-in-law after taking it for a few days! I asked my doctor for Provera after weaning my baby at 10 months and still not having a period or ovulating 6 weeks later. The worst side effect was that I suddenly lusted after my !husband's brother!, which luckily calmed down once I quit taking the drug. 48 hours after taking the last pill, my period started. I'm on day 3 and it's actually been much lighter than before I had a baby and it was never bad in the first place. The hot flashes I experienced near the end weren't too bad since it's winter, although it was uncomfortable. This drug worked fine for me, although my increased sex drive could have had disastrous consequences had I acted on my desires! I hope to resume regular cycles after a year of amenorrhea. F 26 7 days

 4  Induce Period Cramps, very moody, and bloating I was nine weeks without a period, my doctor precribed provera. Day 5 of taking the pill I started spotting. Day 6 still spotting. Day seven full blown period. Very heavy ( having to change every two hours, sometimes soaking threw) Extreamly bad cramps. This med did what it was suppose to do but causing a lot of pain. No pain relievers help either. F 36 5 days

 4  Thick uterine lining, Light periods Hot flashes, mild period like cramps, tender breasts. I've only been on Provera for 4 days. GYN is trying to induce a period as my Estrogen level is through the roof, uterine lining is thick and my period, if I get it at all, is very light and lasts for 3 days. Not looking forward to my next period, but, if this medication helps me, I'm not going to complain..... much! F 40 90 days

 4  PCOS - Induce A Period I haven't had a period since June 2010. I was prescribed Provera 1 10 mg pill per day for 10 days. While taking the pills I experienced the highs and lows of emotions. I would easily which from sad to angry. My boyfriend often told me that "Im being extra sensitive". Day 1, was pretty easy...it really cleaned me out. Days 2 through 10, I experienced mild cramps, back pains, bloating, sore breasts, and a lack of an appetite. I was starting to get worried when I had not seen anything. After I finished my meds, I contacted my dr, who said I should get my period within the next 10 days. Around Day 4 Post Meds, I started to see spotting but only when I used the bathroom. Same thing on Day 5. But Day 6, my period actually came down. I'm going on day 5 of having my period and it seems pretty normal so far. I have seen some blood clots and have experienced semi-severe period pains, but I was prepared for much worse. So far, I am happy with the end result. I will continue to take 1 75 I would recommend this medicine, but everyone's reaction to it may be very different...JUST BE VERY PATIENT AND ASK ALOT OF QUESTIONS!!! F 25 10 days

 1  Irregular Periods Heavy bleeding, large clots, dizziness, chills,tired, no energy I took this because I was under the impression that it would regulate my periods.I had already been on a period for 22days.Which compared to this was very mild. Then I started taking this, no warning that this would make me have a heavy period with large clots and horrible cramps.I am changing pads every hour to two hours, even through the night. I am into day 13 of taking this, I am supposed to continue for 8 more days on this stuff. I haven't decided if I am going to continue or not. I will never take this again and I don't reccommend it at all. I know I'm going through the change, I think I am just going to let my body go through it naturally, I've never had any female issues before. I just hope that this stuff hasn't created any.

 4  Missed cycle for 5 months Slight Headache in the beginning and no appetite. Started my cycle the day after my last pill. Had light bleeding for 2 days and then on the 3rd day I was getting horrible cramps, clots and bleeding heavy. It is my 4th day and I am still having a very heavy period. Not sure how long this will last. Guess that is what happens when you don't have a cycle for 5 months! F 36 12 days
