 1  To stop my period whilst on holiday I asked the doctor for something to hold back my period while I was on holiday. He prescribed Provera 5mg 3xday. I started taking it a few days before I was due as advised and continued taking it 3x a day, however on day 4 my period came...I thought it may be spotting so continued the Provera but it turned out to be a full on bleed. I obviously hadn't taken any sanitary protection (as I didn't think I'd need it!) I stopped the hormone and continued to bleed for a further 10 days, a lot longer than my usual cycle. It eventually stopped but after a week, I have had cramps and spotting and feel sure I am about to start again. All in all, for me it was a waste of time and money. I had to pay more for sanitary protection abroad and was self conscious around the pool, all the things I wanted to avoid in the first place. I was very dry below as a side effect and as I was on holiday, pads wern't really an option. I found it very uncomfortable inserting and removing tampons. The only other side effects I had were diarrhoea after the firt dose and wild, vivid and mad (but brilliant) dreams. F 38 6 days
 1  Abn bleeding Lots of crying and depression Will never take again. It's useless F 36 10 days
 1  Abnormal Uterine Bleeding & PCOS Fatigue, mood swings, bloating, nausea, SEVERE cramping So far, this has not regulated my cycle at all. This was my last ditch effort to get this under control, I have been battling with AUB for years. Had a D&C in March, Mirena (which wasn't helpful), then tried Micronor, and finally Provera. Apparently my body is not reactive to the synthetic progestin. So, it looks like I am hysterectomy bound. The side effects from this medication are horrible for me - the cramps are more comparable to contractions during labor. Worst cramps I have ever had. F 39 21 days

 5  Bad cramps abnormal bleeding Took this for bad cramping, fatigue, moodiness. Only prescribed as a ten day script. Just to help balance. Its amazing how well this has helped me. Day #3 coming in the a.m.My bleeding has slowed. My cramps are lightening up significantly and i feel great! F 40 1 days
 1  Old age haha WEIGHT GAIN bloating sleepy brain fog lower back pain severe cramping HEAVY flow Took it for over a month in hopes to regulate periods. Bled for weeks on end with horrible clotting and cramps. OB/GYN said keep taking it when I called with concerns, so tried it for 15 more days after already taking it for 30 days. 21 days of heavy flow (clots, soaking, you name it) 24 days of spotting. Felt horrible the entire time on this med. exhausted, moody and packed on 12 lbs in 45 days. Took myself off drug and fired Dr. Took about a week to get back to normal, but once off Provera was able to function again. Periods are not balanced, but decided nature taking it's course had to be better than Provera (and 5mos later, still think so) I truly don't understand how this drug could be so freely prescribed, it's side effects are awful!!! F 45 10 days
 2  Simple & Complex hyperplasia Insomnia, bloating and contraction like cramps, breast tenderness, moody, weight gain. LIght- headed or dazed. The worst is not sleeping. Switched from taking it at night to first thing in the morning with a large breakfast. Dr. wants me on this for another couple of months till I can have a hysterscopy and polypectomy. Not sure I can last that long. This medication although has stopped the bleeding is scary to take and I am not sure the side effects outweigh the initial problem. Also, I had a sister die of breast cancer and the dr. still wants me on this. - not happy. Tried the Prometrium and it just makes you so sleepy you can't function at all. F 52 30 days

I stopped sporting straight away, it's took me 4 days into my weeks break to start period but I have very severe back tummy and thigh pain 2 days before, started light on day 4, day 5 massive clots, doubling up pads every half hour, horrendous pain that even co codamol didn't touch, still the same day 6, pain was so severe I called doctor and he told me to start taking provera again straight away, also prescribed dihydrocodiene, bleeding slowed down that day but next day came back full force, forced to take sick days in work, couldn't leave the house for 4 days due to pain and flooding, bleeding and pain seemed to be getting better but woke up today extreme pain again an very heavy bleeding, I have to sit with a towel under me and I am leaking through pads, God knows what the next step is but I seriously cannot cope with this pain, if you have another option other than these pills please take it!

 4  Constant heavy bleeding my dosage is 2x tablets a day for 3 weeks then have a week break. Still had period over 3 weeks but when I had week off period became 10x worse I was using 3 maternity overnight pads at a time and changing every 45 mins. Ended up using Tena pads to help but bleeding and clots the size of plum got worse. Ended up in hospital ED last week with half blood count I should have and not be able to breathe due to not enough oxygen getting to heart due to lack of blood. Was given iron infusion and blood transfusion and put in tranexamic acid tablets in addition to provera. Bleeding has now almost stopped F 44 3 months
