Provera would be used to bring on a period. It's normally prescribed for 5 days. Metformin is something you should take daily for pcos. It will not bring on a period. Provera is progesterone. You will get what's called a withdrawal bleed up to two weeks after stopping it. Normally you will get your period after a couple days of completing the provera. Hope this info helps
