That is odd, I had to say it but did you do another pregnancy test to make sure you did not ovulate somewhere in there? If that is not the case I would call your dr on Monday and ask him what next.

I have not taking a pregnancy test since the early 90's. My ovaries are so small...I dont think I would ovulate. I was just thinking that since I was going to start taking Provera the next 6 months...That in the 3-7 days off Provera, that It would just come on FULL BLAST!!!! I have not had a cycle on my own since May 2007...May 2002 and December 1998.

The first cycle I took provera it took me 14 days after taking the last provera pill to get my period.  After a few cycles of taking it I would get my period at about 7 days after taking the last pill. I've read that you can spot when first off, but I didn't get full flow until 14 days after my first time around. It's annoying, but give it some time. My doctor's nurse told me not to call in for a monitoring appointment until I was "bleeding like a pig" (whatever that means) not if I was spotting.

I usually spot for a day or two when I stop taking prometrium.  It can take up to 14 days after the last pill to start I always waited until day 14 to call.  My RE said the same thing to call when I had "real" flow.

Generally can take up to two weeks to start a real period. Also remember, because you haven't had a period in a really long time, it may take your body a few extra days to adjust. I think the spotting is a good start. Your period should be starting up really soon.
