 2  Irregular-Heavy Periods Breast tenderness, crying spells, rage, depression, severe digestive issues, flu like symptoms. I started taking provera to induce a period. On day 3 I couldnt stand myself anymore (along with my husband and kids). I decided I was done taking it. On day 3 I also started bleeding. It is 4 days after i started bleeding and It is heavy, dark and alot of clots. VERY heavy cramping. No signs of stopping anytime soon. I think docs think this is a wonder drug, well yeah sure, but it has so many scary and dangerous side effects. I threw my presciption away and will not ever take it again. F 33 3 days

 3  to get period/trying to conceive On Nov 2, I had a PCOS drilling procedure performed (two weeks after the start of my period). Four weeks later (that is six weeks after my last period), after receiving a negative result on a pregnancy test, I started taking Provera (medroxyprogesterone) 10 mg on 12/3/06 for seven days. On 12/10, I didn't get my period so I called my doctor to see if there was reason for concern. On 12/14, I took a test and I am pregnant. I have read that there are many side effects to the fetus while taking Provera. Does anyone have any advice? I could be between 4 and 6 weeks. F 36 7 days

 3  to clean uterus lining swollen breasts, pms symtoms, etc. I took 10mg 2 times for 10 days. It started my period but it has been a terrible 7 days so far. Literally soaking several pads a day. I don't want to leave the house because of the amount of blood and clotting. F 24 10 days

 1  Stop bleeding From day one I experienced extreme itching all over my body. Two weeks after the 10 day dose, I am still itching. Also, my next period was just like childbirth, clots the size of babies and cramps that felt just like contractions. Never again! Doctors make it sound like it is a fix all drug, but many fail to spend the extra effort in explaining the horrific side effects. Ask, ask, ask questions until they hate you. It is your right!

 4  PCOS / HYPERPLASIA Very Sore breasts, Severe Cramps and lower back pain and very heavy period I was prescibed 3x10Mg daily for 30 days and I am on day 23. I am used to having very painful and heavy periods, albeit very infrequently, but nothing so painful as this - I have missed 2 days of work and am currently having to work from home because the bleeding is so heavy. I have had to get up 4 / 5 times every night and have gone hrough more sheets and pyjamas then I care to mention. Having said that the point was to make me ovulate and bleed and that is what it has done so I would happily take it again if it has helped with the Hyperplasia. F 28 30 days

INSOMNIA - HORRIBLE, VERY VERY VERRRYYY tender breasts (and possible growth), dizziness, gain in appetite, wierd dreams, acne I was getting my period for almost 23 days at a time for 4 months straight.

 5  induce period hi I was regular all my life with my period. I had a baby boy last year. Even after stopping breast feeding I have been regular on the dot. Then I missed it for a month and a half...everything else was normal..hormone levels etc. I was not pregnant. The doctor prescribed a 10 day course of Provera 10 mg. I had absolutely no side effects ...I had few PMS Symptoms toward the end like Appetite increase moody hats all.. After 7 dys of stopping Provera I had spotting for one day then next day got my period. It is slightly heavier for sure thats all...I hope this will regulate it now good luck all F 32 10 days

 1  induce period Extreme bloating, soaring appetite, bad acne, weight gain, moodiness, fatigue, depression I was put on 10mg Provera for 10 days to induce a period (hadn't menstruated in 4 months). I had come off BC pills a year before, and my cycle had gone from being normal, to about 2 months long... then nothing. As soon as I started Provera, the side effects began. The acne was awful, the bloating made me want to shoot myself. I stopped at day 7 because I couldn't take it anymore. I got my period the next day, but it was fairly light. Now, 3.5 months later, I feel like Provera is still in my system. My last two cycles have given me the worst acne, bloating and weight gain of my life. My appetite has gotten out of control. If you had/have problems with BC pills (like I did), STAY AWAY FROM THIS!!! I am still dealing with everything, 3.5 months later. Who knows how long it will take to get out of my body for good.

 5  PCOS/ to induce period slight mood swings- probably PMS, after course of pills, mild cramping, tender breasts I went almost a year without a period before I was recently diagonsed with PCOS. OBGYN prescribed me provera (10mg for 10 days). I had virtually not side effects. Infact, my cramps I had prior to taking Provera, went away for the first time in a long time. By day 5 of the pills, I was moody/aggitated but it was nothing more than PMS. The second day after my last pill, I was spotting a bit. On the third day, I got my full period. There's a bit of clotting but what can you expect after going a year without a period? So far, I'd recomend at least trying Provera. F 23 10 days

 5  PCOS, DUB The first month, I experienced severe PMS, period came about a week after stopping last pill and lasted for 2 weeks, heavy bleeding and severe cramping, 2nd and 3rd months, no cramps and light PMS, periods started the day after last pill and lasted only a week and was much lighter. I feel like I am alive again. THANK GOD for this drug, it saved my life! I didn't know how bad I was until I started feeling how good I am now. I can't believe the difference...who was that other person????? F 37 12 days

 1  Treat Endometriosis Half an hour after being given Depro provera a hot sweat,then ok till 3 1/2 hours later chronic back pain, 3/4 after that it had spread up my back to shoulders and neck along with pins and needles down both arms. 15mins later pins and needles in legs as well. 15mins after that the pins and needles were replaced by heaviness/numness and I couldn't feel my arms and legs or hold my head up. Paramedics were called and when they arrived my blood presure was down hands cold and rapid breathing because my throat felt like something stuck in it and someone sitting on my chest. 1 1/2 hours later muscles started to twitch and some sensation came back very slowly. So from 3pm to 6.30pm I had temporary paralysis. It is day 2 and still have all over back pain and keep getting pins and needles but not constant. Have taken antihystimine and that has helped a bit but the injection is due to last 12weeks so I don't know what will happen and if this is a good as it gets. Doctors should be told not prescribe the injection type in case of reactions at least pill form you can stop. I am from Devon in the UK. F 37 2 days

 4  PCOS / No Period At All I took this medication a few times in the past and it worked well and i had no side affects at all..This time of taking it i am on for 14 days and im at day 13 today..I am starting to feel tired and depressed..I am very moody ..I feel like i have PMS i guess..Im just wondering if taking the drug for 14 days is too long and maybe thats why..All other times i only took it for 10 days. I usually get my period about 10 days after i stop taking the pills..It has always worked for me..Last time i took it i waited a whole month for my period but, It did come..This time i was advised to take it an additional 4 days but, now i am having side affects that i didnt have before..
