I was getting off the depo-shot. I didn't have a period for over 2 months, I just started this medication a few days ago I only have 2 more pills to take, I was prescribed 5, this medication is making my hormones go crazy so I know it's working the doctor told me my period should come 2 weeks later after I take my last pill. And I'm having NO side effects from these pills.

No period for over 40 days. Took 10mg daily for 7 days to help start it. Period arrived 7 days after discontinuing. PMS symptoms were moderate to severe. 1st day of period was very very heavy. 2nd day moderate. It worked well for me, at least this time.

I am a 25 yr old female that has not had a period in 5+ months. Was given this medication for 10 days. Took the medication at night, and did not experience any side effects, but it's been 7 days after taking all of the medication and have yet to begin my period. Go back to the OBGYN in 2.5 weeks. Hope it comes soon, or back to the drawing board.
