 4  Induce period Horrible bloating from day 5 and 6 took gasx and help a little. Moodswings,tired all the time,Cheeks feel hot I am taking prover to induce a period so that i can start clomid. Husband and i are ttc. I have taken provera before when i was much younger but do not remember side effect being this intense. i suspect that it is the lack of hormones that my body has not had reacting. i too am having a bit of spotting and a bad heavy feeling in my lower body. but it seems to be working as it should.

 4  Amenorrhea from Anorexia Stomach cramps only on the first day. Intermittent nausea some afternoons. GREAT DECREASE IN APPETITE - but water retention in feet, ankles, abdomen. My greatest fear was nausea and edema/weight gain. Fortunately, it worked out pretty well. I was on a 5mg dose for 10 days. HOWEVER, I started spotting and bleeding on day 8 of the provera, which scared me since that wasn't supposed to happen. I called my clinic and the doctor told me to continue the last two pills. I was told to consider that as the beginning of my withdrawl bleed. It is day 6 since I started spotting (bleeding) and tomorrow will mark one week, which means, I "should" stop bleeding tomorrow, if it's like a regular period. I lost a pound or two, but I probably would have lost more weight if I wasn't retaining water. It's very important to drink a LOT of fresh water while taking this if you want to keep appetite worries in check. I'm hoping that this successfully triggered my periods to start again - it has been 4 years since I was diagnosed with anorexia and when I stopped menstruating. I did the provera because I started getting worried about fertility F 19 10 days

 3  induce period to start clomid Only on my 1st round of provera have had no really bad side effects. No period for 7 weeks. Trying to get pregnant with 2nd child. Have been trying for 1 year. The nurse told me to be prpared that it would be a cleansing period. Two days after finishing last dose I started, but it has been very light. Although the day I started I felt so much cramping that I thought my uterus was going to fall out. 10mg for 5 days, supposed to start clomid on 5th day of cycle. F 26 5 days

 4  to induce period to start clomid moodiness, constant desire to sleep, mild cramping starting day 6, some spotting, headaches...Working the way the dr and pharmacist said that it would. I've been prescribed provera 10mg for 10 days to induce my period so that I may start clomid. I have 2 days left and the cramping is much more sever now. I've started to slightly spot so I'm sure that once I am through with my last pills I should start my cycle. Anyone else start spotting before they were through with all thier prescribed dosage F 27 10 days

 2  regulate bleeding Mood swings, fatigue, depression I'm taking two 5mg tablets a day for 21 days then off for 7 days for the next 3 months .The bleeding during the 7 days off is really heavy. On my second month now. This is to try and regluate my period. I'm concerned about how this is making me feel I would rather not have a period at all or have a month long period than feel the way I do. Waiting to go back and see the Gynaecologist who prescribed this. I'm also waiting to have a demoid cyst removed from one of my ovaries. F 41 21 days

 4  No Period x 10 months Overall mentally dull; trouble concentrating/focusing. Trouble falling asleep at night; Which made it terrible to wake up in the morning. Also, it was hard to fall asleep b/c I could hear my own heartbeat which is really weird. Towards the last few days (day 8,9,10 and lasting 2wks after)- major dizziness/fainting...Which landed me in the ER (I didn't associate the fainting with the med until I went into my 2nd cycle of taking it).

 3  Amenorrhea from Anorexia Stomach pains after dose 1 only. I used a heat pad and went to bed and woke up just fine. I am not finished my 10 days with the Provera, but I'm on day 4 with no HORRIBLE side effects. I feel a little bloated, but I'm always bloated from gastrointestinal problems. I get slightly dizzy, but that could be because of the heat. I am, however, quite nauseous at random times during the afternoon. It's nothing that I can't handle, but it's a little uncomfortable. If you take it with a cracker or two, you should be just fine...Most importantly, I have experienced NO significant weight gain! The provera has completely KILLED my appetite and I even want to think about food. I know I am a recovered anorexic, but I assume people are going to want to be as careful as I am about WEIGHT GAIN/LOSS. My appetite is completely dead during the day since I started the Hormone replacement therapy. I have a cup of Special K cereal in the morning, and then water or tea for the rest of the day. I don't think I'm significantly bloated, I just feel a little heavier from some minor fluid retention that goes away after lying down at night. My weight has stayed relatively constant since the day before beginning the Provera, although I feel fatter from the bloating and water retention. When I am done the 10 days on provera, I assume that I will lose the water weight and added extra bloat IF my period even starts. My doctor said there is a chance that it may not be induced because of my previous health condition - I'm praying things go okay. I am scheduled to start Yaz birth control pills immediately after seeing any blood so that I can maintain my hormone levels. I essentiall F 19 10 days

 1  to start a period insomnia, vivid dreams, mood swings. I was put on Provera because I have had irregular periods for the last year. They were either very early, or very late, and only lasted for about 2 days at most. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant and the ob-gyn said that I should take the Provera for 10 days and on day 13, I should start a period. It didn't happen. On day 17, I called the doctor, and he said to take it again for 10 more days. It has been 15 days since I went off the Provera, and still no period. I will not be going back on the Provera, instead will see a specialist at the end of this month. F 27 20 days

 4  thick lining/no period moodiness, BLOATED, feeling of extreme "heaviness" in uterine area, headaches, some dizziness, general tired feeling. low tolerance for noise Dr put me on Provera after NO period after coming off continuous b/c pill usage to control heavy periods, clots, etc. 10mg 1x day for 1st 10 days of month. Worked the first time around...then no spontaneous period month #2. Back on Provera for 2 months to see if the lining will shed and thin. They aren't thinking uterine cancer at this point, but lining is very thick. This go-round has been worse with side effects. 3 more days on and then, hopefully, a good period to clean stuff out. This is a great site. SO helpful. Thanks to all who commented. F 44 3 months

 1  Endometrial Hyperplasia mood swings, cramping, very sleepy, uncontrollable bleeding verging on hemmoraging Started my first round of 10 pills on June 1st.3 days after the 10th pill my period came, and I bled worse than I have ever in 40 years of having periods.!! I couldn't leave my house for 3 days because I was bleeding so heavy and no amount of pads prevented it from leaking thru to my clothes.Lots and Lots of clotting. Scared but going to do it again July 1st for 10 days. Am a candidate for a hysterectomy but as bad as last month was, if it was shedding my thick endometrium, and this will make my 21 plus day periods go away, I'll give it another month or two.

 1  to regulate my period Extremely painful swollen ankles. I had stubbed a toe the other day and was walking funny, so assumed it had something to do with that until it hit me this morning to check the side effects. Sadly I've already taken todays pill. Can't wait to see how much more painful this is. 10mg Prescribed for 10 days F 27 4 days

 2  To induce a period & start Clomid Not many side effects during course of meds, was taking 2 tablets a day for 10 days (10mg). Starting feeling nauseous, moody, a little depressed, unsociable, tired, started vomiting after finishing dose. Extreme side effects Finished taking provera 8 days ago now & still do not have a period! We're trying to have another baby & this is the most frustrating time. Have just been told by doc that I have to go back on the pill again to try & bring the period on! Have these tablets worked for you or did you go on and become pregnant using something else after taking provera (which didnt work)? F 30 10 days

 2  No period since February I was very hot (my BBT rose by about .8 degrees) and had trouble sleeping through the night, so I felt exhausted all day. I still am having trouble sleeping, even though I've been off of it for 12 days. I am also charting my temps, and they started dropping 3 days ago, yet still no period. :( I was on 10mg for 10 days. It has not worked to bring on a period so far. My husband and I are TTC, so I am very frustrated. I will have to go in for bloodwork to find out why it didn't work. Please contact me if you also did not get a period and what the reasons were. I want to be informed when I speak with my doctor on Friday. Thank you! F 25 10 days

The bleeding eased off within one hour, this is my 3rd day on the medication; I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
