 5  (lean/skinny) PCOS/hirsutism While reading all of the other comments I am probably one of the few ladies who did not experience any dramatic side effects. The only bad thing was that my clitoris is extremely sesitive while on this, which is only 5 days and that's not too bad. All I had was some minor bloating a few hours after I took the medication, and had some breast tenderness. My skin broke out a little bit, but nothing different from how my skin typically was. My appetite is the same, I get head aches too (they go away after a bit and they're not bad). I would say I am a little more gassy, but I also eat a large meal with it which is probably the real cause lol. I feel maybe even less moody now and I only just started this.. I have a case of "lean" PCOS, which basically means I am not overweight. I am 5'9 and weigh 132 pounds, which is considered extremely healthy. I had elevated testosterone and LSH levels, along side with irregular periods and spotting in between ever since I could remember. My doctor said the pill was the worst and last thing I could be on. Most doctors prescribe it because it's an "easy" fix. It's a band-aid, it covers the problems up, however it does not actually solve or treat the underlying issues. Plus provera helps with fertility and doesn't mess with the good things that your EXTREMELY delicate hormonal system DOES have balanced. I also have minor acne/hirsutism (black spurred out chest/lower abdomen/outter pubic bone hair). Hopefully provera will keep working and do it's job! I also hope I'm not the only one with these issues who thinks the pill is a LAST resort thing! It will only do harm than good in the long run for most cases. F 20 5 days

 5  Inducing Period/TTC I took this pill as a first step in beginning the fertility medication process. The side effects I experienced while on the pill were extreme irritability (my poor husband!!) and I was very tired all the time. I took my last dose of Provera on a Wednesday and began my period two days later on Friday. I would highly recommend taking this pill with lunch or dinner because it will make you extremely tired. I made the mistake of taking it with breakfast and always felt groggy around early afternoon. My period after Provera was EXTREMELY heavy; I actually had to take off work for almost a whole week because the bleeding was out of control and I was going through overnight maxi pads every hour. If you have to take this medication, just be aware that the periods can be very intense and heavy although it seems not everyone has this effect from it. I rated the drug a 5 because even though it sucks, it's doing the job it's supposed to do for me! F 27 10 days

 3  PCOS/Thin out the Uterus Lining Taking Provera 10 QD for 10 days out of each month. AF typically starts 3-4 days after last pill. I don't like the PMS symptoms. The bloating, dizziness and always hungry are negative side affects. I'm taking it to thin out the lining of my uterus. Not sure how long I can tolerate the heavy bleeding. This is month 3 for me... F 34 10 days
