PROVERA AND NO PERIOD BUT SPOTTING WHEN WIPING???
Can anyone help answer this... my LMP was in March.. I was supposed to start my first follistim/ovidrel cycle this month and RE gave me provera to induce a period. I always get a period 2-4 days after the last day of the pill. I started to spot brown only when i wipe 3 days after the last pill which was 7/6. I didnt call the nurse cause it wasnt a full flow period. On 7/7 I saw brown spots mixed with a little blood(not red blood) when i went to the ladie's room so i thought my period was gonna start so i called the nurse to let her know it was cd1... i then put a tampon on and when to go change it after lunch time but there was nothing but little brown spots when i wipe. I called the nurse back and told her i dont think this is my period.. im not bleeding and im only seeing a couple of brown spots when i wipe. She said to wait til fri 7/9 afternoon and if i still dont get a full flow bleed then call them back to schedule bw for Sat AM. This has never happened to me and whenever i take the provera i always got a period. I asked her if this is normal and she said my RE likes to give the patient 1 week from the last day of the pill to see if they will get a bleed and if not its normal cus at times some people just dont get a period after taking provera. She didnt seem too concerned about the fact that im spotting whenever i wipe. Today is 7/8 and after i used the bathrm this AM, i wiped and saw the brown spots again. It's been like this since the evening of 7/6.

Has this ever happened to anyone on here and what does this mean?? I dont think its pregnancy cause i had a BFN 2 weeks ago and then i was prescribed the provera.

This is EXACTLY what happened to me - I swear this sounds like my story.
I went to the ER a week later in tons of pain to find out that I WAS pregnant. I didn't think it was possible because I had a negative blood test two weeks prior and was on provera for 10 days. But sure enough, I was preggo. Take a hpt now is my suggestion.

OMG you serious?? The nurse told me i did not ovulate yet and that my bloodtest was negative so 2 days later i started on the provera. Did you have carry to term or did you have an early m/c from the pain you was having??

I just checked again in the ladies room after this posting and now it looks like it might be AF afterall... i saw a gush of dark blood on the panty liner so i put on a tampon again.. gonna check it again and see if it there is more blood.. if so then i assume this would be cd1 today!!! So confused....

No, I ended up having a miscarriage. They said it was not because of the 10 days of provera and 2 days of clomid I took (I failed a blood test too, even tho I was preggo). But I can't help but think that maybe that played a part.

Sorry for the late reply, but my best suggestion is to ALWAYS take a hpt before starting provera and give yourself a week or so at least to be late on af. Don't just start it because you are normally late and you want to get a head start on the next cycle, even if your dr tells you to take it that soon. Some times our inner instincts are far superior to doctors.

Let me know how this worked out for you!

Sorry to hear you m/c. I spotted for 2 days on/off and then AF finally decided to come full flow.

I dont get AF on my own so it's very difficult to know when i'm late before taking an hpt.

I'm currently on my daily follistim shots for this cycle... it's been a slow flow and grow process cause RE doesn't want me to have more then 4 follicles for this Relations cycle as it will put me at risk for multiples. I just hope this cycle continues to progress so I can move on w/ the trigger shot and baby dance... hopefully this time god is on my side.

Hav you found out why? I was orginallyon the depo provera for approx 10 years and did not get a period back within 15months so i went to the doctors who did hormone checks internal exams and all normal, so ive been on provera to hopefully get my body back from being barron. I did one course 10mg 3times for a week AF was reallylight for 4/5 days and came after 8days of finishing the tablets, on second round now which was 10mg 3times for 10 days(after receiving a correct perscription) 9 days later AF came but even lighter lasted a day off a day back on for a few hours and has continued for a few days now....and dont get back to gyny till end of jan...Im 28 and came off due to wanting to start a family.....

this was my second cycle of provera I got so busy I never check for Ovulation the first time, but my first cycle of provera was in March for 10 days on 10mg and got a period the next day of the last pill, then some things changed and so I decided to switch to birth control but between April and Oct I only took them to twice. I STARTED this second cycle Tuesday October 7th and finished my last pill on the 17th but nothing just cramp like systems through out the whole week on provera.. I took a pregnancy test it was negative but the only reason I took them was because I started  my birth control August 17 got a period on August 26—September 5 and never took it anymore so I'm not sure if I'm pregnant or if switching the way I have has caused a delay, has anyone done anything similar?
