 1  To Start my period Horrendous cramping...cannnot even stand up straight! I have only taken one dose which was last night. I'm done..not taking any more. Maybe this is my bodies way of telling me it really doesn't want periods anymore. Just doesn't seem natural to me. F 47 1 days

 1  Ovarian cysts Bad headaches, nausea, severe cramping, weight gain, mood swings, depression, acne, irregular periods, joint pain, insomnia, hot flashes. I started taking Provera due to ovarian cysts and was to take it for 30 days. After taking for 16 days, I started bleeding heavily and the doctor advised me to stop them for 4-5 days and when the bleeding started to diminish to start taking them again. When I starting back, after 6 days I am bleeding heavily again. I will not be taking anymore of them. F 27 30 days

 1  To induce a menstrual cycle Had no period for 4 months so doctor ordered 5 days of Provera to induce a period. 8 days later I did get a period. I have now been bleeding for 21 days straight, very heavy and painful. I then had to get another medication to STOP the bleeding brought on by Provera. Even this very strong medication is not stopping the bleeding. Don't take it! It isn't worth it! F 29 5 days

 1  To regulate my periods After taking Provera I experienced severe joint pain in my knees, ankles and feet. So severe, that I can hardly walk. I have extreme acne and constant scalp and skin itching. I also experience some back pain and weight gain. I did not know that all my joint pain was from one little pill. I was so upset, I thought something was medically wrong with my legs and was ready to see a specialist when it hit me.... F 36 3 months

 1  prolonged menstrual bleeding Irritablity, mood swings, crying episodes, increased my pain level from minor to severe in my upper back, shoulder blade and arm while taking provera (pain level returned to minor after I stopped taking drug). Provera was recommended by my physician to regulate my menstrual flow (non-stop flow for more than 1 month). The side effects were so extreme that I stopped using it before the 10 days were up.

 1  secondary amennorhea depression (uncontrollable crying; inability to work, read, eat, sit upright; only could stare straight ahead unmoving and cry all day). also acne, weight gain, irritability, emotionally labile. I took this to induce a period; instead, it induced depression. I would NEVER take this medication again, no matter what. If you must take a progestin, take a natural one. I've been told that they have fewer side effects than synthetics. F 32 7 days
