I was given Provera last month to stop my period before I went on holiday. After a few days of being on Provera I started bleeding and this continued on and off for the rest of the holiday (2 weeks). As soon as I got home I stopped taking the tablets and had my period.

However, I am now 4/5 days late. Could this be due to the Provera or something else?

Thank you in advance

Yes, it contains a hormone, so it can affect your hormonal balance, which may result in spotting, and an irregular cycle, according to the NIH.

Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?

For how long did you take the pill? I want to delay my periods too and the doctor prescribed me provera 10mg for 10days. Please let me know. Thanks.

I went to my ob/gyn on 12-22-2017 and she put me on this birth control pill called lo loestrin due to my heavy cycle and low iron. I started my cycle on the 26th of December and currently still on it. I am so frustrated and annoyed because this isn't a light cycle, this is a monsoon of a cycle. I don't understand why it won't stop. It is all day. I called my doctor and told them I am not taking the pills anymore and they told me to give it 3 months. I can't believe they told me that especially if I have low iron. So after a few more days I called back and told them I will not take it anymore due to my headaches and feeling of weakness. The nurse practitioner prescribed me some provera that should stop it but it has not stopped but is slowing down just a little. I don't think this pill should be on the market if this is how it does women. I hope I have some relief soon as my frustration with every time I wipe I see red is annoying. Has anyone else had the provera pill and if so how long did it take to see relief?
