Provera Period

My gyno put me on provera last week to induce my peroid, as my last period was dec 23rd. Prior to that i skipped the month prior.  I would like to know about how long after the last provera pill should i expect to get my period. Also how long should i wait if i don't get my period?

if you are pregnant and take provera, it will not affect your baby at all. provera is just progesterone- a hormone your body naturally produces anyway. while you're taking, you're pumping more of this hormone into your system (hence the mood swings), then once you're done taking your course of it, the drop in the progesterone levels in your body SHOULD trigger a period. because this is something already found in your body, the (hypothetical) baby will be none the wiser.

(i've had this same talk with my dr.!)

hope this helps!

My Dr put me on Provera and I am very nervous about this. Can you guys help me with my concern. My boyfriend said im just worrying to much. My Dr prescribe me Provera for 5 days today will be my last day of the pill. I have yet to feel any cramping or anything of the sort. Should I be concern or is this normal. When should I expect my period to come after taking my last pill? will I have to continue taking this pill so my menstral can be regular. Would this help or hurt my chances of getting pregnant in the future.

Is it likely to get pregnant while taking provera every month if you ovulate?

I took provera to induce my periods to start Clomid.. I took provera 50 mg for 5 days and I had my period after 5days from the last day on provera..
My doc has asked me the same.. start clomid on 2nd day of my period and also she asked me to get a blood test to check FSH and LH reading prior starting proevra.. I took my second clomid pill today.. fingers crossed..

Hi folks.  I just wanted to throw some info out there.  I am a registered nurse who has had to take provera a couple of times now.  First of all, to those of you who have questions about drug interactions, DO NOT ever assume that your doctore remembers to tell you about interactions.  Always be self informed!!!  As a rule, antibiotics render birth control useless unless otherwise specified. I took care of a 50yr old having a baby whose doctor forgot to tell her that!  To those of you  who suffer from irregular cycles, especially those of you in your younger years or with infertility issues, PLEASE ask to be evaluated for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).  This is a very underdiagnosed but common hormonal disorder that causes symptoms like irregular periods, abnormal weight gain, acne, infertility, blood sugar instability, and excess hair growth (face, legs, etc.)

I went off birth control at the end of October and got my period mid-December. I haven't had a period since and my gyno prescribed Provera for 10 days. Today was my first day taking it. If I get my period after this, do I start to ovulate normally again or is Provera just to induce your period and have nothing to do with ovulation?

In April of 2007 I had heavy bleeding bad periods. I mean it was just going throw my pads, my clothes, and sheet. It got so bad I had left to the clinic and they gave me Pro Vera. I had head ache, mood swings, and just pain in my vagina. I notice when I started using Pro Vera my
period had never came back. It's 2009 and I am freakin out that my period hadn't came back yet. Is Pro Vera safe??? Can I ever have kids after taking Pro Vera????

I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 14 and was told that I would never have children. Well when I was 21 I got preg with my boyfriend of 7 yrs. My daughter just turned 5 and I am now about to be 27. My husband and I really want to have a baby and my OB said it can happen it will just be a little harder for me than most women. My PCOS has progressed since I had my lil girl. I haven't had a period since April 8th and before that I didn't have one for 4 months. Dr. put me on provera 10mg for 10 days. I took my last pill yesterday and no period yet. From what I have read it can take some time. Which ***** because I want to stat taking the Clomid so I can ovulate and get pregnant.  Reading all of  your stories helps me because I have been an emotional roller coaster with this med. I am excited and positive one day and the next I am worried I will not be able to give my wonderful husband the child we want.  I am trying to stay positive but at times its so hard. I pray for all of us women that have this problem and have faith that my prayers will be answered!!

I finished my dose of Provera and it's been three weeks-- I still haven't gotten my period yet. The doctor wants me to come in to do a scan of my ovaries and check for PCOS-- I'd recommend checking in with your doc again! Something may be wrong if you don't get your period within a week of being off Provera.Hope this helps.

I have PCOS and I havent had my period for ywo years and i could probly count how maby periods I have had my whole life on my hands and feet and I'm 34. I was put on Provera and I have taken my thrid pill and I hope it works. I have one daughter and she is 13 now but I have never used BC and I have no more children. I was told that if you take provera within the first four months of pregnacy that the baby could have birth defects. PCOS is a horrible condition and it smashes alot of dreams. My daughter was a born four months early at 1lb 4oz because people with PCOS have a high rate for miscarriage. That what the doctor called my baby a miscarriage that lived. I pray that they will find a cure for this because it causes health problems too and I have all of them. Hihg blood pressure, high CHL, over weight. and hair were it dont belong. So I will pray for all of you that god will answer your prayer and give you a baby because I thank him everyday for my blessing.

Hi, my doctor told me I should start my period within 10 days of the last pill. Also, I don't think you would be pregnant because Provera doesn't make you ovulate only induce periods. What kind of problems did you have to be put on Provera? I just went to the doctor two weeks ago and she prescribed Provera to me because of irregular periods cause by PCOS. She wont let me start my pills until the 1st day of September because she said it is easier to keep track of it if I take it the 1st thru the 10th. I cannot wait to get started with my pills and get my periods coming again so she can put me on Clomid to induce ovulation and hopefully I can get pregnant!

my doctor diagnosed me with pcos as well, I am 28. I took my last pill(provera) of 10 on august 28 and haven't started yet. I called and asked my dr's nurse and she told me it could take up to 1 to 1 1/2 weeks well I may have jumped the gun a bit but my breasts are very tender, have been urinating more, moody and in the THE MOOD non-stop. So I took a hpt yesterday and another this morning Sept. 4 and both were positive! I am so excited, I've never had a pregnancy test to result with a positive but to have 2 that were...So I may take another hpt since its labor day weekend and then call my Dr. on Tuesday... Good luck everyone!

Hopefully this helps someone. I have never been normal. I never had a period until I was put on BC at 17. I was told by my OB/GYN that we would worry about why I had problems when I decided to have kids (eye roll). I kept pursuing an answer. 2 days after I bought my wedding dress I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, now almost 3 yr old. She was our blessing in disguise. When my daughter was about a year we decided we wanted another baby. My Dr. sent me to a IVF clinic last and they put me on Parlodel to dry up breast milk then told me I had PCOS. If you look at me you would scratch your head. I asked the Dr how it was possible since I don't have most of the symptoms. I am not a very big person, abnormal hair growth is minimal ( a strand here or there), no sign of high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. I am now being treated by a new Dr. who but me on Provera and Chlomid so hopefully this works. He will be doing an HSG (checking filopian tubes) and the Chlomid Challenge test. Little nervous but if it solves the problem I won't be complaining. I hope this helps someone. Make sure your Dr. checks you for PCOS even if they look at you and say it is not possible.

For the last three months I've been having 2-3 day spotty periods, so my gyno put me on provera for 7 days. I've been off of it for three days now. But the thing is I was supposed to start my "normal" period yesterday and it didn't come. Is this because of the provera?

I am also on Provera and my husband and I are TTC. I went to the OBGYN and she gave my provera to get my cycle right so we can conceive. She didn't mention anything about not being able to have a child after taking Provera.... I went to her to get pregnant! Also, I am having the test ran for PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) to make double sure nothing is wrong with me.

okay, I haven't said and read ALL of the comments to see if they would answer my question. but I am 17, and I've been on depo for about 2 years now. I missed my last shot, as well as switched doctors. so my new docter did an exam, and said before she gave me my next shot i had to have a full period, so she put me on provera. well, i've finished my prescription & my mom has got me scared that i could be pregnant where i didn't start my period the DAY AFTER my last pill, which would have been yesterday (Aug. 2nd).. i just need some advice, please and thank you!

I googled to find out and this site helped alot. Im a 21 overweight female. I had the implanon for 3 years and since off of it i only had a very light period that lasted only a day every month. I am also trying to conceive and have not been susccessful. I took my last provera yesterday and havent had a period yet. My symptoms arepretty normal (sore breasts and mood swings) I also have had an akward craving for pumpkin all week lol its wierd for me. My doctor said you can ovulate while taking it but im worried that next month i wont have a pd then ill have to keep taking this stuff. I dont mind it but its annoying at times. Most of my friends who had kids at 16 and 15 got pregnant quickly it makes me wonder if i shoulda tried havin a kid when i was that age lol

I am a 29 year old female and I have been on Provera 10mg for 10 days its day 11 now and I still don't have my period I saw my fertility professor on the 29th of April and my Uterus lining was 7.3mm. As far as I know it should be 10mm for you to menstruate, I have cramps and discharge not brown white but no period. Should I give it a few more days or just begin my active pill as my professor advised me today via telephone? I am so unsure I have also used 5 cycles of clomid and nothin and the strange thing is I had no problem falling pregnant with with my other two sons :-(
Please give me some advise!!!!
