ok this drug is great for some and not others. I personally like it because then I know that I am going to get my period! To top it off this is the way I get Pregnant, I take this for 10 days then I wait normally 10 days for the cycle then on days 5-9 of the cycle I get to take letrizole(femara) for fertility, have intercourse days 10, 12,14,16,18,20. It does come with risks and such but god only gives us what we can handle! I have a beautiful daughter becasue of this treatment, and trying for another. I have PCOS and endometriosis. I am also missing an ovary so ladies and gents(if you read this) miricales can happen, don't give up, waste all of your options.

Heavy bleeding prompted my Dr to prescribe this drug, It worked in two days, but now I am experiencing cramping which I have not had prior to taking it. I take it at night so the side effects have been non-existent.

I was put on the 10mg pill for 10days, after I took it, I had no period yet, I forgot that there is what they call the 3-7 withdrawl period, where you wont bleed during this time. So I waited and finally 2days after the withdrawl I started, now when I am done I can try to concieve for a second child. Going thru the side effects was bad but what do you expect when you dont have a period for over 3months. Def. worth taking the meds, but everyone's body is different and I wish nothing but hope for whomever else has to take this med.

I took this drug due to 6 months without a period. I took it for 10 days as perscribed and a few days after my final dose it started! It worked great with little to no side effects for me.

This medicine is AMAZING. After not having a period for 2 months, I took the 10 days of Provera and the day after my last pill, I started spotting and the next day my period came. Now, this is definitely one of my worst periods, but the fact that it came and now I can start TTC again is wonderful!!

I have taken this pill for 8 days now & already started my period on day 5. Am I suppose to finish taking the pills? Definitely worked for me.

My period had been absent for 6 months, after a pap-smear, ultrasound, and several blood tests came back normal my doctor prescribed Provera 10 mg/day for 10 days. 5 days after I stopped taking it my period came back. I was told to expect severe PMS symptoms and that this could be the "mother of all periods" but it hasn't been that at all. I didn't have any PMS symptoms, or any side effects from the drug whatsoever. It worked wonderfully for me, that said, I also had many tests before starting it that indicated there wasn't any other reason for my period stopping other than stress/hormonal imbalance. I think that these tests should always be done before Provera is prescribed. Just my 2 cents, I hope everyone has as much luck as I did.

After not having a period for over 3 months, and trying to conceive, I started on this and just a couple days after finishing my doses I started my period!!!

Comment from: Done!, 35-44 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: June 09

Excessive bleeding for over a year (periods lasting 14 days 5 of which I would bleed through 2 super tampons and a super maxi every half hour), finally got to the point where the period wouldn't stop (1 month). Put on birth control to get the periods under control- they didn't stop so after another full month of bleeding I was put on 10 mg Provera 3 times a day (30 mg total). Within 2 weeks the period finally stopped, I am tired but I think that is due to enemia, I think the stuff is great, no side effects except for a really nasty headache yesterday and fever- I hate to say it but I will take the headache and fever over the period any day!
