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?
Waiting for hysterectomy for abnormal bleeding. Dr put me on 10mg of provera and period got worse. Increased to 20mg and still no change. Help please?
Alternative solution: If I understand you need a hysterectomy (hopefully minimally invasive so quick, less painful recovery). I would infer your doctor is trying to buy some time with the provera that's not working. Contact your doctor and see if they want to do a withdrawal bleed?

Amenorrhea: If you were being treated for amenorrhea ( no periods) a common therapy is to give Provera for 5 days and wait for your period in 1 or 2 weeks after last dose.

Am trying to get pregnant i had Depo-Provera once period started back in jan but its hard to tell when am ovulating. Just had period april 10-14th.?
Hard to tell: The median time to conception and/or return to ovulation following discontinuation of Depo Provera is 10 months after the last injection. However, it can be as long as 18 months after. During this time you might experience irregular bleeding so it would be extremely difficult to judge when you might be ovulating. ...Read more
Been on depo, period stopped completely after i got the first shot. Its been 1 yr on Depo-Provera & no period. Now brown/red blood and cramps out the blue?
Can happen: Depo-provera is a long-acting hormone that slows then stops the growth of the lining of the uterus (which gets shead when you have your menses). After a while, the lining of the uterus can get so thin that small blood vessels are exposed, causing irregular spotty bleeding. If heavy or lasting more than a week, see a gynecologist. ...Read more
