Varies: Provera (medroxyprogesterone) taken for 5 to 12 days usually results in a period by 1 or 2 days after completing the course of provera (medroxyprogesterone). However, the Provera (medroxyprogesterone) will only induce a period, it will not make a woman ovulate - so it impossible to predict when ovulation will occur. Usually, Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is used to induce a period in a woman who is not having regular cycles - that usually means she doesn't ovulate regularly.
