 2  to induce a period Feeling hungry and more tired than normal. Other than that no other side effects. I took Provera, 10mg for 10 days to induce my periods. I begin on 05/01/07. Took last pill on 05/10/07. It's been several weeks and I'm still waiting for my period. My Gyn ordered Lab work including blood & Hormone test on 6/04/07.

 3  induce periods Depression, fatigue. Lack of energy. Malaise. I have been taking 10 mg for 10 days now, supposed to take for 15 days then off 15 days then back on for 15 days. I sought out this site to see if depression was a side effect and am glad to see it is although really would have appreciated my MD telling me that. Hoping to get a period soon. I seem to get one every 3 months and am trying to conceive. Aside from feeling increasingly depressed, no sign of other symptoms. F 32 10 days

 1  Treat Endometriosis Update from 9/16/2006 Depo Provera (injection lasts 3 months)Day 1 temporary paralysis, anaphylaxis (paramedics called, severe flu like symptoms, very tired Day 2 still ill with severe flu symptoms and injection had attacked my chest wall making it feel like I was short of breath. Saw Dr who didn't believe it was the injection said come back Monday (4 days later). Did that and he did reflext tests and sent straight to Hospital A&E. Kept in under observation for 2 days. MRI scan and other tests carried out. Confirmation it was injection. Antihistamine max dose still in March 2007. Used American made Natural Progesterone Cream - Serenity, sold by Health Science to counteract the progestins, as still in pain, which operation was meant to sort out. Nat Pro says on lable not to mix the two, as one knocks the other out but desparation was to try. Saw Gynaecologyst in March 2007 after 9 months on Nat Pro and he had to admit the Natural Progesterone cream was working a lot better than he thought it would, and admitted that he had run out of things to proscribe and some of his other patients were on it! Found out about Nat Pro on an American F 38 3 months

 4  induce AF moody, depressed Last time I took 10 days of provera and then got a pretty heavy period (red) and I hadn't bled before that time for about 3 months. This time I started provera because I didn't ovulate after 35 days and I only took 5 days of provera. My period came 3 days after the last pill and was pretty red the first day but very dark brown (like dirt) the 2nd. Today is the 3rd day and I'm wondering if this is normal... F 22 5 days

 3  induce a period hunger, bloating, more frequent urination I have taken the 10 mg dose for the 10 day cycle, and have not experienced my period yet. I had not problem getting pregnant after I went off the pill after taking it for 6 years. My periods were never regular before I went on the pill at age 19. I never began a regular cycle after going off the pill to become pregnant. We didn't try for 3 mths after quitting the pill, and became pregnant within a month of trying. I have had negative pregnancy tests, and am not pregnant, but have not had my period for almost 5 months. F 27 10 days

 3  induce cycle hungry, no energy, nauseated, clumsy, dizzy, insomnia, cramps 2 days after taking 10mg for 5 days I got the dreaded AF. After not having a cycle for about a year(other than spotting) I got it with a vengeance. I am on my 6th day of bleedeg with cramps from hell and changing my super plus tampon every 1 1/2 -2 hours. No energy and my house is a mess but I can honestly say I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand I am glad it is "cleaning out the system", but on the other hand I will never take this again. F 29 5 days

 4  Late/Absence of Mensturation Slight Acne, heavy Sweating, Hot Flashes, always Hot I was on the BCP for about 8 years and went off 8 months ago when I got a very painful ovarian cyst. My period were reg. but very heavy and bad cramps. I was reg. from August-March) In April, I was prescribed Provera b/c my period was very late-It was about 45 days since my last period and my PCP gave this rx to me. I also consulted the GYN and got no answers or recommendations-I was told "there is nothing wrong with you END OF STORY". They had me get a blood preg. test and it came out neg. I aslo took 10 Home Preg tests and all were neg. I was so frustrated and scared that something was wrong b/c there must be a reason why I wasn't getting my persiod and no one gave me answers so I started the Provera (10mg 1 pill per day). On Day 8, I experienced pain very similar to the ovarian cyst from last year. The pain was the worst it has been and was just like the cyst. All of a sudden, I got my period on Day 8 along with the pain and now it is 2 days later and I have no more cyst p F 28 8 days

 2  Heavy bleeding tiredness, aggrevated lipoma, bloating As soon as I started taking 10mg x 1 per day, the lipoma under my rib cage had a "sensation", throbbing. I queried internet and found that it can aggrevate fatty tumors. I only took it for 1 month. Not taking it again. I'll just deal with the bleeding until I reach full menopause F 53 1 months

 4  birth control/acne spotting, MIGRAINES, major mood swings, improved acne, sore breasts Monthly periods turned into one short, light period every three months when I was due for the next shot. HOWEVER, I was on it for two years and every month my headaches would get worse and more frequent until I had to stop taking it. Thanks to the drug I am immune to Tylenol and all other over the counter meds and now have to take migraine drugs and anti-seizure meds to keep the headaches away. I was actually sad to go off of it b/c I loved the no periods and great skin, except everyone around me hated the mood swings. And the sore breasts were no big deal. F 22 2.5 years

 2  simple hyperplasia; excessive bleed Insomnia; slightly moody (but no more so than before Provera); fatigue; joint pain; headaches. I am on a 3 month regimine of 10mg Provera to treat simple hyperplasia w/o atypia and abnormal uterine bleeding. I was under the impression that Provera would STOP my bleeding. However, after taking it for 3 weeks I am now in the middle of another period from hell. Severe clotting, changing tampons/pads (I use them together) about every 30-45 last night. It seems to have slowed down a bit today - I can last at least 60 min between changes! Woo hoo!!! I'm calling my doctor today to find out if this is REALLY what she was looking for the outcome to be? I'm 51 years old.... just take it out! I don't need it anymore!! F 51 20 days
