MPA: Provera (medroxyprogesterone) can take up to 2 weeks to start a menstrual period; if it is longer than that it 'failed.' remember that bleeding after Provera (medroxyprogesterone) can be very short and light. If you have a certain period it doesn't matter at all whether you start Clomid on d3 or d5, if your period is not dead certain please please please do not start Clomid at all.
