 1  hyperplasion i had headaches, nausea, extremely tender breasts, huge appetite,constapation,gas and bad night sweats. I would start my period before the 14 days was up. I took them for 3 months and now I have been off of them for 2 months and now I haven"t had a period. I wonder if it could have put me in early menopause? My doctor is going to try mirena iud when my period comes back. F 45 3 months

 4  No Period 6 mons; Potential PCOS Extreme PMS (severe mood changes), cramping, bloating and night sweats After taking the pills for 6 days, I started spotting and soon was heavy enough to consider it a period. Went to get testing for blood work, as I'm in the process of diagnosis for PCOS. I'm currently on the 2nd day of finishing the pills and the 7th day of my period, and the bleeding is the heaviest with no end in sight. The PMS symptoms have stopped, but the bloating is still present. F 20 10 days

 2  To start period--missed 2 1/2 mns Intermittent low pelvic pains. Triggered uterine fibroid to act up. Irritable and moody. I probably need to wait at least for Day 10 before I rate this. My last period was Nov. 30, and still no periods today on Feb 25th. Since I've been taking Provera (Day 7 today--still no period), I notice my grapefruit-sized uterine fibroid has caused excessive bloating; I feel heavier; I'm experiencing lower pelvic pains. Day 4 I had the most severe cramping, but just mild now. Could this be early menopause? Prior to starting Provera, I had been experiencing hot flashes and night sweats, but symptoms seem to have subsided since I took Estroven and now Provera. F 44 10 days

History
 2  Missed period for 2 months Seriously moody - like bad PMS. After reading other comments, I can say that I did have an increased appetite, I just didn't realize that was why . . . . I actually took it for only 9 days because one fell down the drain. Oops. It has been 9 days since the last one and I have no sign of a period. My doctor told me to give him a call if nothing in two weeks. Anyone out there go longer than 9 days? I really don't want to take another round as I was very impatient and harsh with my kids. My husband wasn't really happy with me either. I was snippy, mean and nasty! F 42 10 days

 5  To induce periods - PCOS. Severe moodiness while on it - cranky. Bad PMS symptoms. Fatigue. Increased my blood pressure. Anxiety. I was supposed to take Provera for 10 days, but could only manage 5. I was taking it after being on BC for 10 years. I also have PCOS, so have not had regular periods in years. I got my period 5 days after stopping my last pill. I am now on day 3 of period, and having very heavy bleeding....1 pad per hour. I am very tired. On the positive side, my stomach feels less bloated than it has felt in years!! Despite the side effects, this drug does what it is supposed to do. I will continue to take it every couple of months to bring on my period and hopefully regulate my cycle. F 30 5 days

 3  DUB due to thick endometrial lining No side effects until my thyroid began to function better due to a nearly ten percent weight loss. Suddenly, I experienced diarrhea, stomach cramps, gas, bloating, extreme nausea, headaches, insomnia, rashes, dizziness, extreme fatigue, weakness, excessive sweating and nervousness. The medication did its job and stopped my DUB. However, the side effects kind of erase the benefits. Provera facilitates thyroid hormone function. If one has a problem with their thyroid then they will have problems with taking Provera especially if they have hyperthyroidism or thyroid disease which is not properly regulated. I could not stay on the 60mg per day dose. It caused many symptoms which worsened and accumulated over time. The dose was changed to 40mg per day and soon I started having symptoms with that. I took 30mg for several months and suddenly had a bout of horrible diarrhea, gas, extreme nausea, and stomach cramps. I thought it was a stomach virus. But soon I discovered that it was caused by Provera. Now I cannot take any because of extreme nausea, stomach cramps, and diarrhea. The symptoms of overmedication with thyroid medicine are similar to the side effects of Provera. These include headaches, nervousness, increased appetite, increased sweating, nausea, insomnia, rashes, dizziness, fatigue, weakness, bloating, gas, stomach cramps, and diarrhea. Other symptoms which are not similar include chest pain, atrial fibrillation, heat intolerance, palpitations, weight loss, and shortness of breath. F 56 5 months

 3  (PCOS)- pre-clomed for Ovulation I'm on the third month...Horrible sleep-night sweats and VIVID nightmares. Extreme acne (worse than puberty) and hungry ALL the time. Also dealing with bloating and constipation (sorry to be so graffic). I thought it was from the clomed, but it's gotten worse this third month on the provera. F 29 3 months

 4  Extremely heavy bleeding Incredible fatigue--so tired I could nap all day and still sleep at night. Huge increase in appetite--hungry almost all the time--and especially crave sweets. The huge appetite and craving sweets is NOT at all typical for me. I'm on day 5 and the bleeding is essentially gone. I couldn't have continued with such heavy bleeding, so the med was necessary, but I hope I don't have to take it again--I don't like the side effects, especially being so exhausted. F 51 5 days

 4  To induce a period Sleepiness, increased appetite, slight mood swings, low libido (I want nothing to do with hubby while taking). I am on my second round of Provera, 20 mg for 14 days. The first med I took was Prometrium, 200 mg for 10 days, and that did not work. My doc then prescribed Provera (which is much cheaper than Prometrium) 20 mg for 14 days. Five days later I had a very light period for 5 days and started Clomid 50 mg CD 5-9. I did not ovulate. I started the second round of Provera at CD 35, so I hope it will work again so I can increase my Clomid and hopefully ovulate! F 27 14 days

 3  I had a D& C Moodiness, irritation have been bleeding since I started the medicine back in June 2009 and today is January 6, 2010 Dr. says that Im very large in the lower body. D & C was unsuccessful because of too much body fat. Im not bleeding alot basically spotting. but wear a pad everyday for the past five and half months is not funny. Stress on love life has caused my relation to breakup, stress on the job hostile environment So to comment about Provera I'm not feeling the the goal that my dorctored prescribe to me when I put on the medication back in July 2009 taking in for 21 days and then stop. My menstrual has never stopped since the D&C. I'm very stressed mentally and physically. I go to work and go home and go to sleep before this I was a normal person, I used to go and party two -three days a week have not partied since July 2009 Don't have the desire to do no hobbies I used to do. HELP!!!!! F 43 5 months

 4  Polycystic Ovary Syndrome The only side effects I experienced were restlessness and being constantly hungry. I really wanted to munch all the time...lol. This medication worked exactly like it was supposed to. I was told my period would begin anytime 3-7 days after finishing the medication and it arrived right on schedule on day 3...so far so good. :) F 29 10 days

 2  endometriosis adhesion pain heart racing (only since I am on Provera), nausea, headaches, low mood, easily offended, nightmares, feeling out of sorts. (Ireland) Side effects are severe especially when you consider this is not a life threatening illness. I have given it a fair try but will come off it now. I do not take the decision lightly as the only other alternative is removal of ovaries and hysterectomy though no guarantee of pain loss. I came off Provera for a month and the side effects disappeared, pain got bad so I went back on it. Today I stopped taking it forever. I have tried all other medication for severe Endometriosis, my doctor says. Sigh F 36 13 months
