 4  PCOS-Trying to conceive So far this is my first day taking Provera. As for side effects so far just dry mouth and felt my heart pacing but didn't last long. I'm really looking forward to completing this medication. I hope and pray that I can conceive as I'm REALLY wanting a baby. After completing this I hope to start Clomid asap. I do agree however that reading some of the side effect comments on this page scared me. So far so good and I'll keep you posted! = ) F 35 10 days

 3  No periods for years -PCOS I am one who is VERY sensitive to medicine! VERY! I had Hot flashes and had a lil trouble sleeping. I had HORRIBLE PMS but all this was something I can live with. None of it was really terrible. I took 10mg 1x a day for 10 days. After day 4 of stopping I got my period. At nite! It is VERY heavy at times, cramping is bad. I am now on day 4 of my period and the flow is really irregular. It gets lite and I think it is stopping but then gets VERY heavy again. All in all its not that bad so far. F 31 10 days

 4  TTC back and stomach cramps, MOOD SWINGS, werid dreams, slight insomnia and acne I was taking provera to start my period that I havent had in like 3 months (i have very irregular periods) because my husband and i are trying to concieve. The dr. put me on provera to start my period so she could do hormone labs and a hsg scan (run dye thru my fallopan tubes) and then next month start clomid. Overall, it wasn't that bad. The side effects are bearable.. But the only thing that Im not liking to much is the heavy heavy bleeding im on day 9 of my period and theres no sign of it stopping. But im assuming its bc im sheding all the old uterus lining thats been backed up from missed periods. But I would recommend it to any one its definately worth it I think.. F 20 5 days

 2  Heavy Periods/Flooding/Firbroid Early and longer periods, headaches The Doctor told me that the Provera would hopefully lighten my periods and shrink my fibroid. I have been on oral Provera for four months now and it has lightened my period even though I had a day of flooding this week. After the flooding incident, my doctor wanted to see me. She said that the Provera isn't working, so my other alternatives were ablation or hysterectomy. She gave me another month's prescription of Provera until my next procedure, but I will not take another Provera pill, as it made my breasts very tender two weeks after my last period and brought on my current period 10 days early and I'm going on day 9 of bleeding. Before Provera, I bled for 4-5 days and flooded off and on during that time, so I'm going back to abby normal. I Think Alice Cooper wrote "Only Women Bleed" for me. Ugggghhhhh!!! F 49 4 months

 3  irregular periods Bad dreams, bloating, gassy, sick to my stomach and EMOTIONAL! I have been having 15+ day periods since February wit a week to two between. Im not ovulation so my dr. Put me on provera to regulate my period. Im on my second month. The first month, I started spotting on day 9 of provera. Then had a 17 day period. This month, the provera has posponed my period with the exception of spotting at night a minimal amount. (I was taking my pills at night wit dinner) I am now going onto day 3 after my last pill and have only spotted once. I am EXTREMELY BLOATED!!! Its very uncomfortable. I really hope this does what its supposed to, regulate my period, help me get back on track with ovulating and ttc. F 29 12 days

 3  pcos, trying to concieve none It worked great the first time. I got my period a couple days after my last pill. The second month my period was really weird, spotty, light, hard to tell I even had a period. This is the 3rd month and 7 days after taking my last pill I still don't have a period. This is very frustrating as I am trying to concieve F 23 10 days

 3  mennorragia/PCOS Extremely heavy bleeding,became very emotional, bloating, cramping and moody I have taken Provera several times in the past 4 years and have not experienced this much discomfort, out of control bleeding and not to mention emotional! I started my period July 6th and it still hasn't stopped. It has just mostly been spotting but my doctor wanted me to start Provera again to help completely shed the lining. I took my last dose last Sunday Sept 19th and on Monday I woke up in a flood. It has been non-stop since, missing work, running to the bathroom every 10-15 mins. I called the Doc and she told me to call her if it doesn't stop in the next 40 days! WTF! Also my blood levels are all completely normal! can anyone relate? Holly F 28 10 days

 5  To start a period Slight moodiness, hot flashes, slight dizziness, gas, frequent urinating, cramps, and lower back pain. I started taking Provera because I haven't had a period in 2 years. I was starting to get worried so I talked to my doctor. He told me that it's not unusual for women to be irregular. So I took Provera for 10 days and literally THE DAY AFTER my last pill I started my period! (When you start your period varies from person to person.) F 19 10 days

 3  Start period Sore breasts, depression, moodiness, cramping I was prescribed Provera because I have irregular periods; but this time I have missed 2 in a row(after not getting it on December and April). I'm on day 9 and hopefully I'll be getting my period soon. I'm going crazy about this cause I can't stop thinking about not getting my period. I don't mind the side effects cause I've always had them and even worst than what I have now. I'm just want my period to start. F 28 9 days

 5  Endometriosis/IBS-D This stuff is AMAZING!!! I am only on my second month, and I take it between days 16 and 26, but I have NEVER felt better in my life. Not only did my IBS stomach aches go away, but my period is lighter, with less cramps, and I have even lost some weight (10 lbs that I have been trying to kick for some time.) My acne has also decreased. I wish I had gone on this earlier, I have never felt so good. I was scared to try it too, after reading the comments on here, but I am glad I took the chance! F 34 2 days
