Limited time: Taking Progesterone such as Provera (medroxyprogesterone) usually works well to stop a prolonged period. However the next period will come 2-5 days after finishing the medication. This period should be more normal in length - the Progesterone helps you to both have a period and have it be self limited. If periods are irregular it can be helpful to take bcp or Provera (medroxyprogesterone) to regulate them. ...Read more

Soon: As long as your body is capable of producing estrogen, you will build a uterine lining. Taking provera (medroxyprogesterone) prepares the lining to be shed like a menstration.

Took Provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 10 days, period 10 days so far very heavy and lots of clots and pain. When will it stop?

Unnatural cycle...: Induced by Provera (medroxyprogesterone) withdrawal can be unpredictable. If a perimenopausal patient goes many months between periods, the lining could have been very thick over that time and the period longer and heavier. Also around menopause, the estrogens needed to rebuild a new lining to seal off the old can be reduced. If you are concerned and the bleeding is not slacking off, see your GYN. ...Read more

I took provera (medroxyprogesterone) forb5 days now 4 days later still no period iam worry now. When I should expect my period?

Unknown: I assume you were prescribed povera for irregular periods. Since you didn't have a cycle after taking it clearly it did not work for you. Since your periods are irregular there is no way to predict when one might come. Birth-control pills would likely be more effective to regulate you. ...Read more
