 3  endometrial polyps, heavy bleeding First 5 days I experienced massive headache and insomnia, shortness of breath, dizziness and anemia. Then, I started to have enlarged, sore breasts (very uncomfortable, like PMS throughout). I've always had bad heavy menstrual flow with big clots. I was diagnosed with endometriosis 5 years ago, as my right ovarian cyst-10cm was removed by Laparoscopy. I had Luporon shot 3X but 3-5 years later, cyst came back, with left side also(both 4.5 cm) also discovered uterine fibroid- about 5cm. doctor also discovered a cervical polyp, which I had it removed. my biopsy resulted as endometrial polyps. my husband and I had to refrain from sex for lengthy periods of time, due to pain&continual bleeding. thank God, my doctor did not suggest another surgery but prescribed Provera. Need to be on it 3 months for 21 days. From 2nd month he wants to raise the dosage to 20 mg. scares me a little considering all the - side affects I had. But over all, it has been bearable. hope it'll be all worth it in the end. It's a miracle I'm even taking this medicine, since I was so anti-medicine. my mom has been helping me better take care of my body- proper diet and exercise. I just finish up 21 days of Provera and now anticipating my period to come out. I pray everyday also, to God, by Jesus Christ's love and His healing power, to help me heal supernaturally if He wills, and to guide me make right decisions for this undeniable medical condition that I have. Thanks for all ladies who took time to write their stories, which REALLY helped me better understand and also be able to relate to. F 34 21 days

 4  No period Horrible stomach cramping and diarrhea I was put on the medicine because I have not had regular periods since getting off birth control in the fall. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant, so we needed to regulate my periods. I only took the medicine for 3 days because I could not handle the stomach cramps. (and I'm not talking about menstrual cramps.) I had terrible diarrhea and throughout the day and night, the pain in my stomach would cause me to double over in pain. On the third day I decided it wasn't worth it the side effects. 4 days later I started my period. Not sure if the medicine caused it or if it was something else, but either way, I was happy.

 5  induce period before taking Clomid dizziness I've taken Provera 5-6 times. I have PCOS. My husband and I are trying to conceive our first child. The Provera side effects are nothing compared to the side effects of the Clomid. My periods seem to be normal, if not shorter then in the past. I have started my period with in 4-5 days after I'm done my dosage. F 31 10 days

 1  Irregular Periods The first three months were great, but the fourth month i took the drugs my body had a hormonal reaction and basically my body went into "labour" because it was so confused by the drugs. I ended up in hospital and had to hav a D & C (same operation you have when you miscarry) to remove the lining of my uterus because it had become so full and thick. Increadibly painful and not (yet) on the warning label as a side effect. my doctor is reporting it to the drug company so who knows it may end up on the warning label. BE CAREFUL if you decide to take this and if you get severe cramping GO TO HOSPITAL. NOT RECOMMENDED - be very aware that introducing hormonnes to your body has just as much chance of having a bad reaction as it does having a good reaction!! F 23 4 months

 2  shed lining of uterus TERRIBLE mood swings, indigestion, increased appetite, insomnia, Just over all not feeling well. Awful cramping when I had my period, bloating, body aches. 10 mg-Took it for 10 days as directed. On the 4th day started light flowing for 2 days. Started the next round but quit after the 7th day. I am a very laid back person but on Provera I was fine 1 minute, crying the next and wanted to punch someone the next. Started on 5mg but nothing happened on either round of 5 mg provera. Just the painful cramps and bloating. Since being on the provera I have not felt well at all. I am hoping that I start to feel better when this gets out of my system. Right now I am scheduled for a D&C. Hopefully this will take care of everything. Before all this started I felt great. F 54 10 days

 5  To induce my period Mild cramping, fatigue, moody, bloating, heavy bleeding, tenderness of the breasts I have been TTC all natural without help for a couple of years with no luck due to a very irregular cycyle. To begin my first cycle of Clomid. I was prescribed Provera to induce my period which I had not had since the start of Feb 2010 and prior to that the start of Nov 2009. The first 3 days I had mild cramping and felt bloated but nothing unbearable. On day 4 I missed the last 10mg dose because I was sleep the entire day and by that evening I had began cramping and spotting. By morning on day 5 I was bleeding heavily so I stopped taking Provera it had served its purpose. It just feels like a regular period just a bit heavier bleeding. F 27 5 days

 4  to induce period VERY bad mood swings, some insomnia at first. i read each and every one of the comments from other users on this website before starting the provera (which my doctor prescribed in order to induce my period so i could sstart birth control to regulate my period). i was SO scared--everyone had such bad side effects; i didnt even want to take it. but i took my 10 mg dosage for 10 days and on the third day off of the pills, i received my period. worked like a charm. i only had mood swings (yes, they were horrible and drove my boyfriend crazy, but id rather have moodswings than all these other side effects people are complaining about!) all in all, it was fine . i just want to warn everyone reading these comments: dont get yourself worked up, everyone's body reacts differently !
