i have just started taking this due to no period for 4 years. I noticed while reading through the reviews that it didn't work for many women. I was told by the doctor that if 5 days after taking it I hadn't started my period I needed to go in immediately for a d&c. I just thought I would share that for those of you which don't know what to do next.

53 yo, have had 3 periods in the last 2.5 years but Doc says I'm not in menopause according to blood test. I tried this for 3 months last year. I had terrible pain in my legs from what felt like lack of circulation so I stopped. Never had a period. Now doc wants me to start taking again (she didn't know I went off). Going in for a uterine biopsy in a couple of days.

51 yr old, 4-5 periods in last year, doc prescribed to give more periods. Took from 1st to 10th of this month - two weeks later still no period. Feel that it altered my moods somewhat. Reluctant to continue due to other known side effects.
