what were you given? a girl on facebook is being given progesterone to start her period, someone else said provera IS progesterone.. so now I'm all confused.

Provera is progestron. It is just the name of the drug. But it does bring on the period. I have been given it twice now. usually a couple days after the last pill, af will start. Some start sooner or later but like I said usually a couple days later.

I also took it to bring on AF once. It worked but I had a pretty heavy and painful AF. It sucked.

Not I. It is pretty effective because it mimics the hormone change your body naturally goes through that brings on AF.

Well darn.

Hrm, have they tried to do an ultrasound on her to see if her she's even ovulated yet? You think they would if the progesterone didn't help. So odd.

It took a week after I stopped to start.

The only other thing I can think of is that there is some kind of cyst that can keep your period from coming, even after you ovulate.

I've always had to take Provera, form of progestrone, and it always worked. This last time was the first time that it took almost a week before she showed, usually she comes the day after the last pill. But this AF seems lighter than normal too. I think she may be gone by the end of day and if not today tomorrow. YAY!!!

I just went and looked at my chart from back then. AF showed up 3 days after my last pill.

Hi this question was about me. My last period was Feb 3, stopped my bc pills mid Feb, had a little withdrawl bleed NOTHING since then. I have stopped bc before and it has never really affected af. No known medical issues. I've taken many ep tests and a blood test. Last one was night I started the progesterone (provera) 10MG. Took it orally for 7 days, last day being Apr 23rd. It's been 10 days? Which is the time limit I think so made an appt for thurs but I'm freaking out until then! Scared. Worried. Maybe should be excited??? Could I have ovulated even though no af? I (think) I've been having pregnancy symptoms but maybe its just my imagination. We want a baby so much!

Also the bottle said DO NOT take if pregnant or expecting to be pregnant??
Could it hurt a baby at all? We were told to use condoms for the week I took it but we were ttc before and after!
Any ?s I shouldn't forget to ask my doctor? What tests could I expect?

It took 20 days for it to work for me. My doctor told me it could take this long and of course I was one of those cases. I was freaking out as well. She did tell me if I was pregnant it would not bring on my period nor would it harm the baby. It's just not something you would want to take if you know you are pregnant.

One reason your period was probably late in the first place was probably adjusting to coming off the pill. Everyone woman has a different experience with this and it can take everyone a different amount of time to regulate out. This is a totally separate issue from the medication.
