GYN MD "jumpstart": Your GYN MD needs to look "under the hood" and determine the cause of the "engine's" failure to start" Once determined, he/she can "hook up the battery cables" by giving progesterone (Provera) Rx to "jumpstart" the period. If that fails then additional diagnostics may need to be done to get the vehicle "up and running" again.
