 2  PCOS/Start a period Bad Dreams, Extreme hot flashes, bloating, moody, hungry I have been taking Provera for 5 days now, me and my husband are trying to get pregnant, but all i have experience so far is bloating, and cramping, no period. Hopefully its not a long and heavy one. I have also seen acne trying to appear, and im not in the mood as much. Its really hard to sleep at night. But its all worth it to get my little bundle of joy im wanting. F 25 7 days

 5  Irregular periods/long cycles None I was prescribed Provera to regulate my periods as my cycles are usually three months long. Whilst taking Provera I felt wonderful, but did experience a bit of PMS when I stopped taking it (bloating, a bit of nausea, thirst, hunger). My understanding is that PMS is linked to a progesterone sensitivity, and obviously Provera is a form of progesterone, so I think this is why I had more PMS symptoms than usual. I began my period today, nine days after I took my last pill. I was starting to get a bit concerned when it didn't happen within the 'few' days advised in the patient leaflet, but I am happy that Provera has worked for me. In my opinion, if you have a problem with your cycles, this is worth a shot - surely the PMS side effects are a small price to pay if it sorts out your cycles! F 27 6 days

 4  PCOS - induce period VERY emotional, irritable, cramps, hot flashes I have a very irregular cycle. It is usually light and lasts 3-4 days about every 3 to 9 months. I started spotting 3 days after finishing provera. I am now on day 8 of the heaviest flow I have EVER had!!! I have cramped for over 2 weeks. I have had a headache for a week. I generally feel like crap! Provera did what it is supposed to do (give me a period), but the process sure does stink. F 32 10 days

 4  Irregular Periods? PCOS Extremely Heavy Bleeding and Large Clots Last period was May 2010, was prescribed Provera to be taken once a day for 10 days. Started period on day 6 of taking Provera. Discontinued Provera and have been on my period for 18 days now with extremely heavy bleeding and passed quarter sized clots, with slight cramps. My gyn instructed me to start taking birth control pills "Yaz" on the day of my period started. Very concerned because my periods have been very irregular for 2 years now (1-2 per year) with heavy bleeding and large clots. F 31 10 days

 5  To regulate cycle Gas and spotting About 6 months ago, my normal 21-24 day cycle with very heavy periods got weird. It was late one month, missed the next month, very short and late when I finally got it then lots of spotting but no real period. Hormone levels were normal, not pregnant, no cancer or polyps. Ultrasound showed VERY THICK uterine lining. So, I started the pills, took them for the 10 days. No massive side effects, just gas and spotting the whole time. Got the full blown period on 5th day after stopping. Oh my gosh, I need a Depends Adult Diaper! Bleeding through a Super Plus and Overnight Pad every 30 minutes. Also have a massive head cold with sneezing, coughing, the whole bit so every sneeze causes a huge gush. I told my kids that if I pass out, it's because of blood loss and they should call 911. How much can possibly be in there? Huge clots and huge amount of blood and I'm just at Day 3 of this induced period! I may just go ahead and get that ablation thing because, at 46, I am so over this and will not be having more children. F 46 10 days

 2  Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding Lower back pain, extreme cramping and bloating, weak, tiredness, irritability Initally prescribed 20mg of Provera for 3 months to stop my bleeding as I had been bleeding non-stop for 7 months prior. After a month on Provera I started bleeding again, painfully and bleeding for 22 days now. Extremely painful cramps during period and doctor upped the dosage to 30mg then recently to 50mg when dosage didn't work. Still bleeding with 50mg of provera. F 23 30 days

 5  TTC No major side effects other than bloating, mild cramps, and some gas. I just completed my period and to my surprise it lasted exactly 7 days. It was't heavy had some small clots but nothing alarming. I did see some brown discharge but the nurse said it was my uterus lining which was to be expected. I already did my hormone lab work and now just waiting for the response from my doctor. Next step is CLOMID!!! I can't wait...sigh! = ) M 35 10 days

 2  PCOS, regulate menstrual cycle PAINFUL cramps, EXTREME bleeding, headaches, very cold. I was given this medication by my gyno due to me having very irregular periods since I was 14. I was finally diagnosed with PCOS a few months ago, and to regulate my menstrual cycle they put me on Provera. The first few days were fine, no major complaints. However, a few days into the medicine I started getting the worse cramps. I've never had cramps in my life and when these pains came along I felt as if I was being stabbed. I was changing my pad every 2 hours, changing pants, wearing long shirts incase of spotting. I could not deal with this anymore and decided that yesterday was my last day on the medication. I am still bleeding since I've began bleeding while on the medication, and it is horrible. My gyno is having me wait 7days after my last dosage to then start birth control to hope it gives me some ease. This medication was horrible and I am never going back to Provera again. F 20 12 days

 2  severe endometriosis Migrane, anxiety, leg pains, constant nightmares, night sweats with cold shivering BUT it did help pain I was on this to stop my periods as I have severe endo adhesions binding my organs. It did ease the pain significantly but I have been told to come off it due to the severity of the side effects. The withdrawals are difficult. Not supposed to be on it long term its a pity they cant tweak it somehow so it can. F 39 2 years

 4  PCOS-Trying to conceive Cramping, Sore Breasts, Mood Swings, Decreased appetite, break out not acne. I completed my 10th day on 10-26-2010. It's now 10-31 and I've begun to bleed. It's not heavy yet and was told by my doctor to go in as soon as it starts so I'll be going on Monday to get hormone lab work done. I'm still cramping at times but it's bearable. Hopefully my doctor will start me on Clomid asap! = ) F 35 10 days

 3  Missed Period Since Aug. 13 I am currently on my last day of this medication (day 5) and its been pretty draining. It gave me terrible diarrhea by day 3, very strange dreams and pretty crazy cramping. From what Ive read it takes about 2-7 days to get a period after finishing this medication. My main concern is the kind of period this is going to produce..Im keeping my fingers crossed that the cramping isn't terrible & that the flow isn't super heavy..although I have a feeling its going to be. I will repost once it comes. F 27 5 days

 3  induce period after depo shots a little diarrhea, nausea, headaches, cramps, insomnia, and hungry all the time (a lot of symptoms, but never all at the same time or so intense i couldnt function) taking this medication wasnt so bad. yesterday was my last day taking it and i had some cramps. they say it takes up to a week to get your period so hopefully i will get it soon. i just hope it isnt super heavy and doesnt last very long like it has for some of the other girls i read about. i will be sure to post if my period begins.
