In brief: Usually

Amenorrhea just means the absence of a menstrual period.
This can be due to anovulation. If you have enough estrogen around, you will usually have a period after the progestin love drops, i.e. after finishing provera (medroxyprogesterone). If you don't have a period after Provera, (medroxyprogesterone) that can mean that you don't have enough estrogen to grow a uterine lining to slough off. At 47, this is most often due to menopause.

In brief: Ask the doctor

who prescribed. We cannot prescribe or diagnose on healthTap, only general medical information.
Yu could also consider an online consult thru Concierge, but think it's best to talk with the doctor who is prescribing for you. Best wishes.
