|3||to induce a period||bloating, weight gain...I put on several pounds.||I have used it before, but I haven't gotten my period yet this time. It's been 8 days since my last pill.||F||28||5 days ||10/23/2005||2||pcos, amenorhea||breast tenderness, moodiness, extreme fatigue, insomnia(at times), increased appetite, nausea, heart burn, bloating.||I took Provera for three months with little side effects (slight breast tenderness that came and went throughout the 10 days I was taking it). On the fourth month I experienced the above side effects. I don't know why there was such a drastic change in side effects. At first I thought I was pregnant because of the drastic change, but I'm not. I have taken this drug before, but not recently, and never experienced such side effects.||F||27||4 months ||10/4/2005||2||no period for 5 mos||headaches, bloating and major mood swings||this is my second run through with provera and still not satisfied, 1st time no period and now stillno period||F||25||5 days ||9/28/2005||4||induce a cycle after miscarriage||acnes, very very moody, heavier bleeding than normal, more blood clots during the cycle||F||34||7 days ||9/26/2005||1||To reduce lining in uterus||Hot flushes, tiredness||I was prescribed provera to reduce the lining in the womb, as I had suffered VERY heavy periods. From day one, I bled - not very heavy, but enough to have to wear and change pads every day. I was on 30mg per day, supposedly for 6 months. I have since seen my gynaecologist and he has agreed to a full hysterectomy, which I am having in 6 weeks time. I stopped taking Provera (what was the point), and am having what I feel is a heavy period. I can put up with this if the bleeding stops in a few days. By this stage, I have shares with ' Always Ultra'"!||F||43||2 months ||9/22/2005||5||Induce period/pcos||Headaches, increased hunger, vivid dreams, slight cramping (but thats the idea!)||I never had the nausea/gi upset that some did, so i am lucky. My period hasn't started yet, but I am on day 6 of a 10 day pill. I have taken provera before and it did the trick so I can only assume that this will work. So far I am very happy.||F||25||10 days ||9/21/2005||1||to reset periods, am having 2 a mth||Sudden bloating,nightmares,breast tenderness,depression,horrid mood swings=laughing to hysterical crying||I wont take it again. Not even if they paid me. Im only on day 5 of 10.. not sure I can take much more of this.||F||34||10 days ||9/21/2005||1||regulate periods||Joint pain, moodiness, bloating, headaches||I have since discovered that this is a synthetic steroid being promoted as derived from progesterone, which is a hormone naturally produced by the body. This drug is NOT progesterone because the structure of the molecule is not bio-identical to natural progesterone. I've been using a topical progesterone cream in a sealed pump for about 3 months and not only have I become regular, the side affects are gone AND my periods are lighter and PMS has disappeared. Do your body a favor and don't use any synthetic progestins!||F||50||4 months ||8/27/2005||3||Bring on a period||Sudden bloating, seeming weight gain and breast size increase in a matter of days||Period hasn't come but its only been about 2 days off.||F||34||5 days ||8/21/2005||2||induce period||Extreme mood swings, ovary pain, cramping, increased appetite.||My Dr. prescribed Provera to me to take 10 days in a row to start my period. I took the pill for the 10 days and the last pill was taken 8 days ago. I have still not started my period and I am not pregnant.||F||23||10 days ||8/12/2005||5||To induce a period||VERY moody, bloating, tiredness, vivid dreams, increased apetite on some days||I took 10mg for 10 days and my period arrived 2 days later so I am very happy with the effectiveness. However, the emotional side effects were CRAZY and made me very moody and cranky.||F||26||10 days ||8/8/2005||5||to regulate menstural flow||well when i took provera i just had breast tenderness and backaches but other than that i was fine. I got some heavy cramps before and during my period. It just brought along heavy clotting when my period arrived and that had me kind of scared but i was fine cause i was not pregnant!||I think Provera is good but you just have to take as prescribed to get the correct results. I am trying to conceive but i dont think i am ovulating. It is time to take my second dose of provera now cause i was told to take it every 6 weeks if no period and my 6 weeks is up so it time. I just want to know how long it takes to regulate your period so i can get preganant and first of all ovulate?||F||18||6 weeks ||7/26/2005||1||to induce my period||no side effects just no period yet after 19 days of taking them and just a few spotting||i have not have a period for 3 1/2 months so dr. put me on provera 10mg for 30 days so i called the dr. office after 2 weeks stating nothing yet, so dr. told me to take 20mg for 3 days still nothing happen except for alittle brown spotting on my panty kinda like a mucus plug when you're about to have a baby anyways, so dr. send me to get lab work for hormone levels i'm still on provera until my last 30 pills are gone. he said i may be experiencing early menopause but we have to wait on the results to see i'm only 34 years old||F||34||19 days ||7/23/2005||3||to get a normal period||cramping, unusually tired, FOOD FOOD FOOD!!!!!!||I took the pill because of a month and a half of spotty bleeding (pantyliner) and am now on my fifth day of a bloodfest!!! Normally I would be at the end of my cycle on the fifth day. I have had to throw away 4 pair of underwear they were stained beyond repair (mind you that I have been using overnight pads)! I can honeslty say that the pill did bring on the bleeding but will it stop?!?!? I want to start trying to have kids again!!!!!!!||F||28||10 days ||7/15/2005 ||3||to get a normal period||cramping, unusually tired, FOOD FOOD FOOD!!!!!!||I took the pill because of a month and a half of spotty bleeding (pantyliner) and am now on my fifth day of a bloodfest!!!

But, as with my sister, I had no negative side effects. I had been spotting almost continually for over 3 months before taking the pill. While on Provera, I did not notice any intense emotions, hunger, or any other side-effects, in fact, my emotions seemed even better while on this pill. Two days after I took my last Provera pill, I started my period - the happiest I have ever been to start, since now I can have tests done to see what is going on with my body.||F||32||7 days ||6/28/2005||1||To Induce Periods as I have PCOS||Severe panic attacks, shaking, loss of appetite, anxiety, nausea, headaches, sleeplessness, lost 14lbs in weight (the only bonus), Kept wanting to cry and run away. Felt completely helpless. AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL||Was given provera to induce period. I have had PCOS for 20 years. I felt shaky after day 7 which got worse. I stopped the drug on day 16. The Anxiety was horrendous. Had to stop work for 2 weeks to get the drug out of my system. I would not wish these effects on my worse enemy. Have had Anxiety before but nothing compared to the rapidity and severity of the reactions. DO NOT take this medicine if you have any doubts.||F||39||16 days ||6/23/2005||4||Induce Period||nausea, moodiness, verge of crying, irritability||I was supposed to take this med for 10 days to induce my period in order to begin my ferility meds. After 8 days I couldn't take the nausea anymore so I did not take the last two pills. 8 pills was enough though, becasue I got my period on the fourth day after I took the last pill (it takes 24 hours to clear your system, so three days after that). If not for the nausea I would have given this a 5.||F||28||8 days ||6/20/2005||3||Regulate Period||dizzy, mood swings, crying over nothing, hot flashes, shakes, increase in appetite.||It did work, my periods have been messed up for about a year now, they did make me start but I also had spotting from the 3rd day I took the pill, and then I started my regular period right after I stopped the pills.||F||25||10 days ||6/16/2005 ||1||irregular bleeding||irritability, nausea, hot flashes, severe abdominal pain, kneck stiffness, pain in legs..front of shins particularly, lethargy, quit taking after 3rd day.||I had never had a hot flash or a panic attack before, but I feel like I experienced both on the 3rd evening. My heart rate increased, breathing rate increased, and after feeling chilled all afternoon, I was suddenly covered in sweat. It literally ran from my head to my back. I will never take this drug again.||F||41||3 days ||6/11/2005|
