Provera No Period

I just got my Depo-Provera today. Period was 7 days ago. My husband and I have done a ton a research but still don't know how long will it take to kick in?
Normal on Depo: Bleeding on depoprovera is highly variable. There is no normal time for your period on this birth control method. Most have no periods. Some have irregular bleeding. Irregular bleeding can be annoying but it does not mean that the method is not working. This side effect is very typical of Progesterone only birth control methods. If you are done having children consider essure instead. ...Read more
Had never started a period and after lots of testing diagnosed with POF, on Estrogen gel and Provera (medroxyprogesterone). Period only lasts 1 day, does this right?
Very likely OK: Light vaginal bleeding in response to some estrogen and some protestin is to be expected in general but may not necessarily tell if the amount of these hormones is sufficient to treat your "POF". You may need to consult your Gyn-Reproductive endocrinologist for ensuring that you are receiving enough estrogens. An oral estrogen may be much more effective and preferable at your age. ...Read more

Provera (medroxyprogesterone): Hi. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) withdrawal is usually just a test to see if a woman who's not having periods is making estrogen. It doesn't put ANY hormones back into whack if they're outta whack. With your abnormal pap and leep, see your gyn to at least make sure your cervix isn't acting up. Good luck! ...Read more
