|RATING||REASON||SIDE EFFECTS FOR PROVERA||COMMENTS||SEX||AGE||DURATION/|
|1||Control heavy bleeding||Extreme detrimental rage, depression, aggitation, weight gain, crying bouts||I am taking provera to help thin my uterus lining and to control bleeding. I took 20 days and on or about the last 10 days the symptoms started and continually worsened. Be careful, I became crazy!||F||42||20 days ||11/3/2004||2||bled for 2 months straight||Crabby, emotional, bloated, tired,insomnia, stopped losing weight, hunger,loss of concentration||I take this 10 days a month to keep from having extraordinarily prolonged bleedding, and now I have not had a period in two months since I started taking it. I am not pregnant, and am worried since this is not normal either!!||F||32||10 days ||10/28/2004||3||induce period||was a bit cranky but im not sure if itwas the provera or whether i would have been cranky anyway||took 10 mg for 7 days and two weeks later got my period which was normal. But it has been a month and a half after the last day of my period (after the provera) and i still have not had my second period yet.||F||26||7 days ||10/27/2004||1||Heavy Menstrual bleeding||dizziness, increased/continued bleeding, heavy uterine feeling, cramping, bloating, irritablity, occasional abdominal pain||F||34||30 days ||10/26/2004 ||1||contraceptive||extreme tiredness/ lethargic; moodswings; fainting; hairloss; painful breasts; difficulty talking (using wrong words); concentration-loss; headaches; weightgain (54 pounds in 6 months); acne; heavy menstruations (after stopping); stomach/ backcramps; painful joints; fluidretention; confused/ misted thoughts; sleeping-time trippled; less sex-drive; memory-problems (like dementia) and feeling stupid because of that... etc etc etc||Because of the side-effects I was not able to have a job or study or have any social activities. Luckily after 18 months of being off it, those are slowly coming back again. I udes to be a hardworking physical-therapist and do sports 6 hours a week minimum (!) and be VERY active in the social-sence, that all changed to the other extrem due to Depo Provera. If the hormonal dosage is too much for your body it will start building up in your body and cause disbalances allover causing all these side-effects, so don't start on it unless there is a reason why you can not take any other form of contraceptive.||F||28||12 months ||10/19/2004 ||1||Induce a period||Headache, Mood Swings and persperation, extreme breast tenderness, crying spells, bloating, weight gain, cravings.||I took provera for 10 days because I haven't had a period in 5 months now and it didn't start my period. I think it would have been worth it but, it didn't work for me. And, I am still suffering side effects 10 days later.||F||22||10 days ||10/16/2004||5||INDUCE PERIOD||CRAMPING HEADACHES TIREDNESS||I TOOK PROVERA AND 3 DAYS AFTER LAST PILL GOT MY PERIOD. WILL TAKE AGAIN IF I HAVE TOO. THIS IS A GOOD DRUG TO GET YOUR PERIOD AND IF YOUR PREGNANT PROVERA WON'T MAKE YOU HAVE A PERIOD. I SHOULD KNOW SINCE I TOOK PROVERA A SECOND TIME AND NO PERIOD FOR 8 DAYS AND ITS CAUSE AM PREGNANT. WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?||F||29||5 days ||10/15/2004||3||no periods||none||none||F||24||7 days ||10/13/2004||1||Prevent Periods||I took the 90-day shot twice. Both times, within 2 weeks of getting the shot, I started spotting which gradually increased to full bleeding for the duration of the 90 days.||I switched to Seasonale, which stopped the bleeding from Provera, but started bleeding again only 60 days into the 90-day treatment. I'm on my second round of Seasonale and the bleeding has still not stopped.||F||40||173 days ||10/12/2004||5||Induce period||I will say, I have taken this before and NEVER had side effects but there was one MAJOR difference: I DID get my period. My side effects began the second day of the 7 days I was on Provera. My appetite was absolutely ridiculous (I felt like I was taking reg. birth control again), I had lower tummy bloating, and my mood was effected (I'd be ticked off really easily, and on the last day I cried over something I normally would not have. I would say the appetite increase was the most distressing. But it was only for 7 days.||This DID bring on my period. I took my last pill on a Friday morning and got my period noon-ish on Sunday. I am SO relieved that I will not need birth control AGAIN. LADIES: EAT! DON'T WORRY ABOUT LOOKING LIKE EVERYONE ELSE WHOS 90 POUNDS. CHANCES ARE, THEY MAY HAVE AN EATING DISORDER MAKING THEM LOOK||F||19||7 days ||10/3/2004||1||Absent period||HUNGER HUNGER HUNGER HUNGER, suddent anger||I have taken this drug before and it hasn't incuded a period. I hope this time it will. but I must say, I have NEVER EVER had increased appetite like this before while taking Provera. I am so uncomfortable.||F||19||10 days ||10/1/2004||3||Bring on Period||Cramps, extreme exhaustion, headaches, craving for sugar, grouchy, moody, crazy dream, take in AM or will be awake all night.||Plan not to take it again if I can help it.||F||27||10 days ||9/22/2004||5||Bring on a period||Massive appetite increase, especially sugary foods. Bloating and water retention. Headaches. Dizziness. Tearfulness. Impatience and irritability. Bizarre dreams and insomnia.||If it weren't necessary for me to be on it - I am on a fertility programme and the dr needs to induce the period as I do not menstruate on my own - i would not take it. I am waiting for the period now. If it works, it gets a 5. If not, the side effects are not worth taking the medicine.||F||28||7 days ||9/17/2004||2||stop bleeding from taking Seasonale||Dizziness (severe within the first 2 hours of taking it), fatigue, headache, mild cramps||I'd started Seasonale as an experiment to stop periods, I'd been having heavy periods on a 3 week cycle for about a year. After 5 weeks of no side effects, I started bleeding; it got heavier and after 3 weeks was very heavy. Stopped Seasonale; went on Estradiol until it stopped, then 12 day cycle of Prometrium. Plan to finish the 12 day dose, but can't wait 'til it's over!||F||46||8 days ||9/16/2004||3||missed period 8 months||dull ache/cramps in abdomen (similar feelings felt with Lupron), hot flashes, ACNE that has not yet gone away after finally getting a period and resuming normal Pill. Drug was NOT a positive experience, and from what I understand, the time it takes to induce period and side effects can fluctuate wildly||10 days after last dose, still had not gotten period, felt awful and anxious. I took 3 birth control pills to kick up then drop hormones, and 7 days later got a light period. Have since gone back on continuous pill for treatment of severe Endo, and have acne for the first time ever(has to be from provera). I believe/ hope it will go away after levels return to normal! e.g. a few weeks/months on Pill||F||26||5 days ||9/14/2004||4||hyperplasia w/atypia||Bloating, mood swings,headaches,hunger||F||31||6 weeks ||9/11/2004||4||to induce menstrual cycle||crying episodes||i wanted to fill out a comment about this because there are so many discouraging ones here about provera. i experienced some crying episodes on day 2 and 3 of taking the drug, but besides that everything has been fine. i feel like that's been worth it to try and get my body back to normal again.||F||25||6 days ||8/26/2004||5||TO INDUCE PERIOD||ONLY SIDE EFFECT WAS BAD CRAMPS AFTER MY MY PERIOD STARTED. IT DOES WHAT IT IS SUPPOSE TO DO, EVERYTHING HAS SIDE EFFECTS.||F||23||5 days ||8/8/2004||1||heavy bleeding during menstratio||Abdominal pain, diarea, nasua, dizziness, fainting, jaundice (yellow), hot flashes||F||40||7 days ||8/6/2004 ||1||stop bleeding; bleed for 5 months||headaches, nausea, severe cramping(worst then giving natural birth) so severe I could not walk straight, mood swings, depression, acne, insomnia, hot flashes, on edge of tears for days, feeling of heaviness in lower abdomin||Taken for 16 days 20 mg doseage, just finished first month's perscription and hating the thought of going through this again twice before seeing my OB/GYN again. Worst pain in my life. . .||F||30||16 days ||8/3/2004|
