How long did your period last after takeing Provera? Did it start the same time the month after or did you have to take provera again to get it started again?

I took provera for 10 days and got my period on the 12th day, period lasted a week, little longer than normal.

I'm switching from the Pill to Depo-Provera. How long do I have to use a backup method?

I've been on Yaz for about 9 months now and am going to start Depo-Provera tomorrow.
I can't figure out how long we have to use condoms before it's effective. '7 days' keeps popping up when I looked online. Is this right?
My pharmacist told me 1-2 months??

I understand fully the risks and benefits of Depo-Provera. Please don't tell me your bad stories of being on it. All women react to it differently.
- I am aware of the bone density loss warning. I'm only 21 and will be on it for no longer than 2 years and will be taking calcium supplements to prevent that.
- Depo Provera is only being considered because it is my last option. The Pill does not work for me and my body reacts horribly to estrogem. Don't recommend other forms of birth control. Depo-Provera is proven and will help with my severe endometriosis.
-My husband and I are not planning on having children for a while. I know it can take up to 18 months for my fertility to return and I am fine with that.

I used to take depo (i had a hysterectomy) and I LOVED it! I never had a period unless it was close for me to get my next shot. Then I would spot, a little. It only takes 24 hours to be fully effective and lasts about 3 months. Good choice. If I had to be on birth control again, I would pick this. Check out this website too.…

But just as an FYI, when I went off the shot, I was under the impression that it takes a year to get pregnant if you are trying to concieve. I got pregnant 4 months after my last shot wore off.......

Apparently not as depo is directly administered and doesn't require to be absorbed through your gut..…

Will my period still start after taking one or two days of Provera?

I'm posting in this forum because people posting here have had more experience with Provera, although it seems they are using it to regulate their periods for fertility reasons.

I've been put on Provera (5 mg) for 7 days to delay my period because of an upcoming vacation. I feel bloated and think my period will start regardless of having taken my first pill today. If it does start, will the Provera stop it before my 7 days suppy is gone?

Anyone used provera to jump start a period?

I'm 20 days late now and according to the blood test im not pg so the doctor is putting in on provera.

Yes, I've taken it before. I have PCOS, so I didn't cycle every month. My doc prescribed it for me. I took 10 pills over the course of 10 days and usually started the day of the last pill or the following day.

Good luck with it
