 4  To start Clomid A little bit of cramping I've had a pretty regular period, every once in a while I would skip a month. Last month I took Clomid 50mg and it didn't work, my period did not come this month so my doctor prescribed Provera. I barely took my first pill yesterday & I'm already spotting. F 23 2 days

 3  To start Clomid Very tender and swollen breasts, painful at times. Very emotional-Sad/depressed. Acne-which I never get- appeared immediately but might be stress related too. Did not get period until almost 14+ days after last pill was taken, dizziness and light-headed/vertigo. Was taking provera for PCOS, so I can start Clomid. Have been trying for almost 2 years for a child with my husband. F 29 7 days

 2  Induce period Hunger,Mood swings, everyone made me mad. Crying probably every single emotion in a couple of hours && VERY VERYY HEAVY BLEEDING. That was the WORST. loe enery and also couldn't concentrate in school. I felt like i was bleeding my guts out. Went to the bathroom every 30m to change pad.

 2  induce cycle to take Clomid mild headaches, mood swings This is my second round of Provera (10 days/10mg). The first round did not make my cycle begin. After reading the other posts, it seems like this is an unusual occurence. I contacted my doctor and went into his office to get blood tests done to make sure my levels were fine. Everything turned out OK so I'm on my second round. I hope it works this time so that I will be able to begin taking Clomid. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over a year. F 29 2 months

 3  Irregular periods for 5 months Missed period March-June, then 5 months of sporadic bleeding. Took for 10 days, then 7th day after that began period. Extreme irritability, lots of crying for no reason. It is the heaviest period I have ever had, with the worst cramps. Blood is bright red and extremely heavy- going through huge overnight pads every 2 hours. Extreme fatigue. Have call into doctor now to question amount of bleeding. On the plus side, I feel much less bloated in my stomach area- like I've lost a lot of weight or something. F 34 10 days

 1  Hemmoraging due to adenomyosis Extremely tired, depression, want to cry, nervousness, irritable, achy calves Been put on Provera for 14 days. My periods are regular, it was given to me to stop hemmoraging. It did slow it down, but I think it would have even without the medicine. I see the doctor tomorrow (at 8 days.) I'm telling him how I feel, and I want to stop this drug. F 36 7 days

 5  No period 5 months The only side effect i had was increase hunger I was alwayes wanting to eat. I was trying to loose weight but my weight stayed the same. i TOOK it because i didnt have a period for 5 months and i took it for seven days the they say 5 days after stopping it you period will come and that is exactly what happened and my period then lasted for a week. But now i have other promblems. But as far as taking it to get you period it worked good. F 18 7 days

 1  reduce spotting between periods Took Provera for 10 days. Period started 4 days later, and has lasted for 14 days - and counting. Have been laying in bed bleeding A LOT for the past 4 days.

 4  To stop bleeding/shed uterus lining Frequent urination, intense craving for CHEESE, increased energy, dizziness after drinking caffeine (had to stop coffee habit), insomnia for the first round and increased sleepiness for the second round, some breast soreness and bloatiness, low-grade headache, and mild leg cramps first couple of days taking drug, which taking frequent walks alleviated. Rx: once daily for 14 days, then 14 days off the pill for a total of three months. I didn't experience any weight gain; in fact, I think I lost some weight because I had so much nervous energy and couldn't keep still. I also watched what I ate because I did not want to gain weight, so that might have helped. I have never had GERD on a continuous basis, but I think the Provera gave me acid reflux. I caught the stomach flu right before I was supposed to finish my last round, so I can't really pinpoint for certain if Provera is totally responsible for my sour stomach. In spite of all of these side effects, the drug did stop the bleeding; my body must have needed the progesterone. I will update my review in a month or so to see if it in fact has stopped it for good. F 39 2 months
