 4  TTC /irregular period PAINFUL&FREQUENT urination, MOOD swings,cramps,bloating,food cravings,insomnia,looooow libido Today is my 10th day of taking Provera. On day 5 I had incredible pain when trying to pee as well as spotting. I was in the bathroom every 10 minutes because I thought i had to go!! I called my dr who said to continue taking for the full 10 days. The spotting did stop but the painful/frequent urination is continuing. I didn't really read anyone else experiencing this side effect, guess i am just lucky. My poor husband has been screamed at more in this last week than I think in our five years of marriage. I seem to have calmed down some but those first days were ridiculous. Hopefully he will for give me and we can make this baby already!!! F 26 10 days

 2  To regulate my cycle I am bleeding really heavy I had to change my pad every 2 hours. The cramps are very bad to I have to cry my self to sleep. I had to take a week off work and it has been 11 days now and my period is still on. I think there should be another way to regulate my cycle. I am really young and I would like to have children on day. With this going on I don't know. F 30 10 days

 3  Irregular Period due to PCOS Cramping, moody, heavy period with blood clots, headaches, hot flashes Starting taking to medication to "clean" the uterus and break down the lining due to not having my periods. Got major cramping and headaches, pretty uncomfortable. After my 5th day on it i decided to stop taking it and now i have such a heavy period that i am changing my pad every 1 hour. I cant sleep through the night because im waking up just to change my pad and if i sleep more then 1 hour and i stand up everything starts running down my leg and my pad is like a diaper. HATE this feeling because i have had to take sick days from work because its embarassing when youre leaking through a tampon AND a pad together! Is anyone else bleeding heavy like this?? Please let me know so i know that its just Provera..... F 25 10 days

 4  Induce period & TTC 2nd child20 Hot flashes the first night, acne, always hungry, and lethargic during the day. After 3 months of not having my menstrual period, my doctor prescribed me Provera to jump start my period again since my husband and I were also trying to get pregnant with our second child. This is the first time I have taken Provera and the first night was the worst with the hot flashes. Eventually that went away and I just had to deal with the bad acne and being hungry, which wasn't that bad. My period started after 3 days of taking the last pill and lasted for about 5 days. I'm hoping this medication will help regulate my period again so I can get pregnant. F 29 10 days

 3  PCOS and TTC Terrible cramping, heavy, heavy period, backache and crazy mood swings I am on my second round of taking this medicine w/ clomid. While it has worked really well for me... i.e., inducing my period, the side affects are substantial. After taking for seven days, my period usually comes between 2 to 4 days after the last pill. My periods are very, very, very heavy with tremendous cramping and clotting. The cramps and bleeding was so bad I ended up having to take a sick day. The other thing that sort of sneaks up on you are the crazy mood swings and feeling of massive anxiety. While the ends justify the means, this is no drug to take lightly. F 34 7 days

 4  severe endometriosis Mood swings, intense nightmares, constantly wanting to eat. Heavy depression. Tired.... I am by nature an insomniac but since taking these I sleep a LOT. Out of the 6 months I have been taking it, my period flowed for 4 months from the 2nd to the 5th month. I didn't think it was ever going to stop but it did finally, unless I miss a dose. Ive eaten almost nothing but pop tarts since I started these pills. I NEED them and will often go without dinner to have them instead. The hubby even knows the "look" I get when I am out and he immediately remedies this. It began immediately when I started the Provera. I chose pop tarts over other sweets because if I was eating worse things like candy bars I would be a moose by now.(I put on a lot of weight fast in the 5th month after having been steady losing since first beginning.) The nightmares leave me tired all the time as they are constant. However... The reasons I began the Provera were pretty bad and some of those pains have have all but stopped. I am presently trying to decide to end the treatment or to continue "indefinitely". I don't think there is any other way to contain the endo as it has spread to other parts of my body out of the ob/gyn field. It doesn't show on any tests and they can't do anything about it even if they could see it. (Doc's often stop wanting to treat you at this point) So I am leaning towards staying on it. I can't say its an easy decision but it does seem to be giving the endo a run for the money... As for the present mood swings, It seems to me I was able to get it under control once my body got used to the Provera. I also switched pharmacies and found the generic brand the "larger" store had was MUCH Much worse on my moods. *cough walmart cough* If anyone reading this deals with endo on this level and you F 39 6 months

 3  Missed periods & excess bleeding Extreme bloating (to where i felt like i was a balloon that could be popped), slight mood effect (not as happy or motivated as normal) and acne was horrible (came on at the 7-8 day and i am not a person who has ever experienced my face breaking out), had horible pain in my lower back and stomach (but i dont know if this is due to the fact that i have never experienced cramps, i have been blessed) At first i took provera in feb to start my period because i had not had it since october and it worked period came on 7 days after and last for a long time 10days but i figured since i hadnt had one in so long it was fine. Next month i had to see how my body would work. I was a week late and then 1 week of brown show and 1 1/2 weeks of heavy bleeding to where it looked like i was peeing blood and i was so week i had to go to the doctor to get it to stop. So the doctor gave me provera again but this time to stop the bleeding and this time i had to take it for 21 days but after 8 days i started to lightly bleed. i still took it because i have a doctors appointment and my period has to be on because i have to get tests. I stopped taking it last tuesday and my period has been getting progressively heavier since to where i have huge clots coming out today. I dont know if this is from the medication but i will find out on thursday when have my next doctors appointment. All i know is that it makes me bleed so much that i feel week afterwards. so i dont know if i would recommend this medicine to someone who is not good with pain. F 27 10 days

 4  dysfunctional uterine bleeding persistent cramping days 5-7, no other side effects...feel great now but the dr told me when I go off it, the cramps may intensify but I will survive. I have had heavy irregular bleeding. Dr prescribed 14 days on and off for 3 months to thin out uterine wall. The cramping was not fun but he told me if I don't become regular again my chances for endometrial cancer doubles. He also told me partial hysterectomies overtax the ovaries doubling ovarian cancer risk, so Provera is my best option. F 46 9 days

 3  stop excessive bleeding Extremely painful cramps, major bleeding with clots, bouts of depression and anger Three days after stopping the drug my period grew extremely heavy and constant including large clots. The cramps were insane, and I was taking handfuls of Advil every couple of hours to deal with it.Today is the sixth day since that started and it is slightly better...flow has lessened...I feel a constant light pain but not severe cramps like before. I will update this review when and IF this ever stops. F 45 10 days

 5  PCOS Trying to Conceive Mood Swings! Greasy oily skin. Mild insomnia. I have two major meltdowns in one day. Went off on my mother sister and cousin over something minor. My husband got a taste of it as well. No pain or cramps. I have taken this before to get hormones on track. I wasnt married then and was not trying to get pregnant. Once on track a few years back I thought that I was good to go without taking the metformin. Seemingly I was having my cycle on my own without metformin. Slowly I started to skip once I got off of Yaz which helped me have a regular cycle. I got married recently and discovered that my cycle are off again due to me not taking the metformin or BC. I was given provera to induce cycle. I am on my 4th day of bleeding. Moderate to heavy cramps. Nothing horible. Looking forward to trying to make this baby. F 33 10 days

 4  Irregular period/ TTC Some mood swings, hot flashes and very sleepy. HEAVY period with cramps 2 days after I stopped taking it for 10 days. This is my second month taking provera to induce my period. Ive been TTC for 1 year. Today was the last day I took it so Im expecting my period soon. My first period with provera was very heavy but it was 5 days so thats fine with me I used to get my period for a whole month straight. So it did help me a bit. After this dose Im getting an SIS then going to start clomid. The side effects did not affect me that much. Today Im feeling a little depressed and Im having some hot flashes but over all it wasnt that bad. F 21 10 days

 5  trying to concieve Mild acne, but I always get mild acne when I am about to start a period. Much less pain compared to my last natural period. Last time I took Provera I started my period the day after the last dose. I'm hoping this time works the same way. I will say that I do feel overly sensitive to things I shouldn't feel that sensitive about. Experiencing slight PMS, but its a period, it's to be expected. Also I do have an increased appetite. Period was relatively light the last time I took it. So far this time around is the same as the last. Taking provera followed by clomid. F 24 10 days

 1  To induce a period The first day after taking the last pill I started having lower abdominal pain. The pain progressed and by the second night after taking it, the pain turned into a constant sharp pain and now started causing pain in my lower back as well. I was unable to sleep, eat and finally had to be taken to the ER because I could not handle the pain. They did a blood test, urine test and CAT scan; nothing was wrong. They told me it was most likely caused from taking this medication. I was not taking any other medication at the time. They thought it was kidney stones based on the pains I was having, which hopefully gives you an idea of how painful this is. It's been 4 days since I took the last pill and I'm STILL having severe pain. Sadly no pain medication is helping. I would NOT take this medication again. It's not worth the pain and suffering that I'm experiencing. F 37 7 days
