 1  Heavy menstrual bleeding My next period did not not come but in about 2 weeks after the first shot of Depo Provera light spotting started. Gradually this became bleeding every 12 to 18 hrs; end of July I experienced heavy bleeding for four nights in a row (almost no bleeding during the day), with large clots and endometrium and possibly fibroid material coming out. Saw the gynecologyst, who took an ultrasound (large fibroids present, ovarian cyst) and administered a second shot. Bleeding became lighter but after three weeks intensified, again with sudden and heavy episodes and cramps. Increased appetite some what, light headache in the beginning, some weight increase (2-3 pounds) before the "treatment", my periods were heavy but predictable and no bleeding between periods, despite presence of fibroids. After Provera, I expected no periods and got a continuous, debilitating period which is not better after the second shot, as the prosectus claims. This might have been the wrong treatment, but I tried as a last resort before going for a hysterectomy. F 52 4 months

 1  can't conceive acne, sore breasts, irritability, bloating, feeling like I am ready to start my period I was prescribed 10mg to take for 10 days. I stopped after 4 days. I threw the rest of the pills away and told my doctor. My face began to break out within a day, and my breasts hurt without even touching them. I have no sex drive whatsoever. I can't wait to start my period in hopes I will feel better, because my body feels like it wants to start. F 37 4 days

History
 5  No period after stopping LoEstrin I had absolutely no side effects and felt completely normal while taking Provera I'm very pleased with results. I had no conditions prior to taking Provera and I think pre-existing conditions may really influence whether or not you have side effects. I started my period 3 days after I stopped taking Provera.

 3  To get period after MC/D&C Moodiness, more emotional, very tired This is my second time to take provera. The first time was after being on hormone medication to get rid of hyperlasia cells in my uterus. The medication messed up my cycle. After the 10th day I got my period about 14 days later. it took longer for me because of my hormonal embalance. The waiting for my period is terrible. I am going to start IVF after this cycle. Can't wait! F 26 10 days

 5  No more Kids Since I started with the shots 17 years ago the only side effect is that I have no period. I have not gained any weight, matter of fact when I started I weighed 175, now, I am a size 10, and weigh between 135 and 145. I have been this way for all these years and have yet to suffer. I guess this worked for me. F 46 17 years

 1  to get a period Tired, Moody, Horrible dreams, Gas, Headaches, Can't sleep, Sore breast I am on day 4 of Provera and I am really tired and can't sleep. When I do fall asleep I get awoken with some weird dream. I am having cramps and all the sign of a period but no period. I was on the depo for 3 years and decided to change b/c and they wanted me to get my period before i started something else. My breasts are so sore i have to wear a sports bra. And nothing is ever comfortable. F 17 5 days

 4  To get a period This is literally a PMS pill. When I started taking it I immediately started experiencing moodiness and an insatiable appetite that was extremely difficult to control. Luckily I was only prescribed to take it for 5 days, but I didn't even take it the 5th day-I couldn't stand the side effects. Today would be the 5th day and hopefully I get a period soon. Of course this does what it is suppose to do, but be careful of the side effects. Of course eating a lot can be controlled by you so watch out for that. F 19 5 days

 3  Excessive bleeding Only the second day but the only side effects I have experienced are dry mouth, and sleepiness. Taking due to hormone imbalance after surgery to remove ovarian tumor and a tubaligation. Had normal cycle for three months, but then skipped a period, started the next month and have had very heavy bleeding with clots for 3 months now nonstop. Dr. prescribed Provera to help me shed the lining of the uterus and hopefully regulate my cycle again. I hope this works, trying to avoid another surgery if possible. F 30 10 days
