    I didn't have the period for about 7 months. I've always had irregular periods but this is the longest. My doctor prescribed Provera a few weeks ago and I took it for 7 days. I am starting to lose hope when my period came after 5 days of discontinuing. Thank God!

    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.
