I take this medicine for 10 day program to start my period, but by the 7th or 8th day I get swollen ankles, feet & hands, put on weight, cravings, and get a very very bad migraine... I am not sure if I am goin to continue to use this medicine. I would rather have missed periods then to have these side effects.

I am currently on day 8 of a 10 day program and I am NOT going to finish. I haven't had a period in over 4 months, and was prescribed Provera to bring my period on. I have been irregular since my first period, and sometimes I have to take birth control to make it stop, but this is the first time I have had to have treatment to make it start. The reason I am refusing to finish the program is no ... Show Full Comment
