In brief: Are you pregnant?

1st step would be to check a home pregnancy test to make sure that you are not.
Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is a form of Progesterone and it can cause some people to feel this way. Ferrous gluconate is an iron supplement. Iron can often cause unpleasant GI side effects.
