 5  PCOS/Induce Period Extremely Irritable, Major PMS and came on fast, weird cramps in rectum, at first it had a calming effect for a few days, then mean, then when off the pill, crying spells and horrible depression. BUT it worked, and I had exactly what I would have if i got my period naturally, just a bit more forced. I would use it again. I had to use it to jumpstart a period so I can go on pill so i'm sure the pill will be just as bad at first. It took 5 days off pills to get it but BOY DID it come in full effect!!! so it def works... F 26 10 days

 3  To get my period almost constant NAUSEA, VERY tired, cramps for over 2 weeks, breast tenderness (I did not have this side effect the first time I took Provera-this is my second 'round') Cravings and constantly wanting to eat. I do not like taking provera AT ALL! It does bring on my period, which I need so I can take clomid (ttc), so in the end, if we do get pregnant..i would definitly say this was worth it. It's amazing what we will do for the dream to have a baby! Good luck every one! F 26 2 months

 4  Induce period to ttc again mild cramps, head aches, depression. The pills make you very emotional. I was supposed to take 10mg x 10 days. I was on the ninth day of taking the pill and I started spotting. I stopped taking the pill. So I only took the pill for nine days. One the tenth day I got my period. If I had to take it again I would. I give provera a 4. It did the trick but it affects your emotions to much F 21 10 days

 1  to induce period after I stopped, severe depression, anxiety, racing heart, worrisome thoughts, felt out of control. Provera caused major depression in me. I remember feeling pretty calm and good while I was taking it. Then as soon as I stopped, within a day, I was depressed, had the worst anxiety, could not sleep, vomited, felt totally out of control. These are very strong, synthetic hormones. Be careful ladies. I was messed up for months and had to go on paxil. F 30 10 days

 3  induce periods Anger, loss of appetite, depression, pressure in my chest, cramping, irritability I took this for 10 days to induce my period. Day after last pill, I started spotting, then the next day started my period. VERY HEAVY bleeding so far. It's been 2 days since it started and I'm pretty miserable with all the bleeding and I do have some clotting as well. I was on another pill a couple of years ago and never had this heavy a period. I also have cramps along with the bleeding and it has not been pleasant, I wish I had researched before I started taking this because I'm just completely miserable and trying to hold it together right now. I have no appetite whatsoever and only eat because I have to. F 22 10 days

 2  Regularize after D&C Severe leg pain to the point I could not sleep in the nights, insomnia, severe mood swings, crying spells, depression I was asked to take Provera after 8 weeks of my D&C as i continued to spot. While the spotting is not there, it is 4 days since I have completed (10*400mg) my prescription. My periods have not started. First of all depressing to go thru a loss and then suffer the side-effects of a drug without any release from this hell. Meeting my doc next week. F 33 10 days

 1  PCOS AND MISSED PERIODS OH GOD! WHAT EFFECTS AM I NOT EXPERIENCING IS THE REAL QUESTION. I HAVE BEEN TAKING 10MG SO FAR FOR 3 DAYS, I HAVE SEVERE MOODSWINGS, CRYING SPELLS, DYING OF HUNGER!, TERRIBLE HEADACHES, INSOMNIA, BACK PAIN, HIP PAIN, BLOATING FEELING, ACNE, EXHAUSTION DURING DAY, BREAST PAIN, ACHES AND PAINS ALL OVER LIKE A FLU FEELING IN BACK! AND THIS IS ONLY THE 3RD DAY, I AM SUPPOSED TO TAKE IT FOR 10 DAYS AND GET A PERIOD SOON AFTER, SO WE'LL SEE. BUT I AM NOT SURE I CAN TAKE IT MUCH LONGER. IT IS THE WEEKEND, SO I WILL CALL DOC ON MONDAY. NOT REALLY SURE WHY I WANT THIS MED IN THE FIRST PLACE, DO YOU HAVE TO GET A PERIOD AFTER A CERTAIN AGE? I AM NOT HAVING CHILDREN SO I DONT KNOW IF THIS IS WORTH ALL THE TROUBLE. F 39 3 days

 3  To induce period The medicine made me feel really bad! I don't think I will take it again. I felt ok at first but by the time I got to day 10 I felt like death. I was so depressed, crying, feeling hopeless, tired and sluggish. My face and chest also broke out in rash and bumps. I could hardly function at work. I did not have too much stomach upset. I always took the meds with food. I have stopped taking the pills for about 4 days now. I am having severe cramping and spotting. But my full period has not started yet. We will see what happens over the next few days. I had a pituitary tumor and have irregular periods. I also believe I have an underlying thyroid condition. I don't have any children but hope to conceive oneday. My periods are either extremely heavy or don't show up at all. F 33 10 days

 5  to induce period poor coordination/ clumsiness It did exactly what it was meant to. My period came about 5 days after. I seem to have been given quite a low dose compared to some people who had side effects. I took 5mg for 5 days F 31 5 days

 5  Induce mentruation During my intake of 10 mg 2x a day for 5 days. I had minor palpitations and hot flushes at night. I also experienced depression attacks in the afternoon. Bloatedness is also present. I only had migraines and minor cramping after i finished taking all the pills. I had intense menstrual cramps during my period - just took pain relievers. I am so happy with provera, i thought i was really pregnant, but my doctor assured me that i am not, after a few tests, just had some hormonal imbalance in my body. My doctor said 5 days to take and 5 days to wait. On day 7, i had heavy spotting and then as expected, on day 10, heavy blood poured in! Im so happy it worked for me! F 23 5 days

 5  induce period (PCOS) Constant nausea first 5 days. Dizziness. Mild cramps. Increased appetite/cravings after end of nausea. Afternoon fatigue (bad). Migraines, irritability, and depression (all possibly unrelated). Overall, side effects pretty mild. Prior to taking Provera, I hadn't had my period in 7 months (I have PCOS and had stopped taking my medicine). I took the last dose on Wednesday night, and started my period on Friday night. This is my 2nd time taking 10 days of Provera (10 mg), followed up by continuous Metformin to regulate periods for PCOS (could be why it worked so well because the first time it only caused mild spotting, but now I have a full period). I am happy with this medicine. F 19 10 days

 5  irregular period I had no side effects what so ever! And I was anticipating them because my mom told me not to take it and tried to scare me out of it. In fact I found that I was MORE calm, less stressed, and got fewer headaches than normal. It was very pleasant for me. F 27 10 days
