 4  Had bleeding for 3 months non stop I have had no bad side effects. In fact I find they are better than anti depressants for lifting my mood. I was anxious about taking them after reading the comments on this page. I had a D&C because of Endometrial hyperplasia and was prescribed Provera. After the op I stopped bleeding for four days, but when I started again I decided to give the pills a try. I am so glad that I did. In fact I wish I had started them sooner. F 51 5 days

 4  To induce a period absent from PCOS At first I was a little nausea on the pill but that subsided after the 3rd day I took the full 10 day as prescribed. My period came 3 days after my last pill. I hadn't had a period in two years so it did what it was suppose to. The period began as a regular one wit back cramps. I never had back cramps before so I attributed this to the pill. Then by day 5 of my cycle is was starting to go away as it should but then day 6 started again with a heavy flow. Since then I've had extremely heavy flow with unusually large blood clots. This is day 14 and it seems as if this period will never end. Ughhh. My doc says this happens sometimes on provera. F 27 10 days

 2  PCOS, restart my cycle EXTREMELY bad cramps,to the point of ingesting 600-800 mg of ibuprofen every 4 hours; excessive flow (using the super long super absorbant pads, I have to use 2 at a time and I still am changing them at least every 1-1.5 hours); multiple large clots. Anger, extreme fatigue, poor sleep and hot flashes, and I am only 32 years old. I took the last pill 3 days ago and have been on my period now for 11 days. F 32 14 days

 4  irregular periods Gained a large amount of weight in a short time. Had heavy bleeding and clots due to absent periods and thick endometrium. When i got my period after taking Provera it was a lot of bleeding and clots i assumed it was from me not having regular periods and that the large amount of blood was build up. Other than that i bled in the amount of time the Dr. told me, I think i was just fearful because my cycles had been so messed up in the past that i had never seen myself bleed That heavy or have clots at all! After I was prescribed Birth control pills to get me regular the pills i had made me flood very bad. I asked for a different pill and it was pretty good( Triphase 28) I continued to take them up until approx. 2yrs ago. Then i decided i wanted to concieve. So overall Provera did what the Dr. prescribed it for but i did gain about 6-8 ibs in those 10 days. F 34 10 days

 1  periods lasting 3 or more weeks I took Provera for 2 days. Day 1, I experienced bloating, cramping and fatigue. Day 2, I was awakened by my heart almost beating out of my chest, neck pain, nervousness. This happened every time I would fall asleep. That morning, I did not take Provera. I felt better that day (minor cramping) and slept much better that night. Still waiting for gyno to call me! I will not take Provera ever again. At least with my periods, I know what I've got. With Provera you don't. Very scary. F 55 10 days

 4  jumpstart missed period for 2 month Very, VERY sore breasts/nipples and major mood swings. I am on day 5 of coming off last pill and woke up spotting. So far, I've got horrible cramps(but those are normal for me)and I was extremely moody and emotional. As many have said before me, everyone reacts differently to this medicine. Don't let that deter you from taking it. Also take note, that the reason some people have to take this (like endometriosis)can have abnormal pain and side effects from their conditions alone, and any med may exacerbate those symptoms.

History
 5  To Induce Period The first day was the worst. I felt sick to my stomach and had the runs for most of the day. After that the only side effect I really had was restlessness at night and a little gassy. My period was MIA for 2 months. The doctor perscibed me Provera so I could start on Chlomid. After reading the reviews before taking this I was terrified. I'm glad I still took it though. The side effects I experienced weren't half as bad as some of these people discribed. I think the trick for me was taking it at night. It took 8 days for my period to come after my last pill, but it's not any different than my usual ones. I'm really happy with the way this pill worked and would take it again if I had to. (I'm hoping I wont have to though!) F 28 7 days

 3  to start my period bloating, weight gain( possibly from bloating), sore/ swelling breasts, lots of cramping, lots of gas I took provera 3 months ago to start my period so I could start clomid to get pregnant. The first time around it worked great got my period 5 days into taking it. I had no luck with the first round of clomid and my period hadn't returned for 2 months so my Dr. put me on provera again. This time around I've taken it for all ten days and nothing! I've got the cramping, sore breasts, fatigue, and gasiness that comes with a period but nothing yet. As for the medicine it's self the side effects are not that bad, I'd recommend it for someone that needed it. F 25 10 days

 1  irregular cycle bloated abdomen, fluid retention, swollen/hard/sore breasts, fatigue, cystic acne breakout My doctor prescribed Provera because my cycle was irregular for a 12 months period of time. During the 7 days I took Provera, my abdomen became progressively bloated, I retained A LOT of fluid, and my breasts swelled and became hard/sore beyond belief. I started my period 3 days after taking the last dose. The period lasted a full week, and was full of clots. I had a cystic acne breakout on my face and had to get steriod shots in the cysts to get them to clear, plus take 10 days of antibiotics. I am in my 3rd week post Provera, and I continue to have a somewhat bloated abdomen, mild fluid retention, and swollen/sore breasts. I really wish that I had not taken Provera and opted for another option to kick-start my cycle. I am a very physically fit person and generally never feel sick, but I have not felt well for about 1 month now because of Provera and it's side effects. F 42 7 days
