i just took my 6th pill of provera and still no period... this can get quite frustrating.... and now im sick, so even though im taking provera can my sickness prolong my period even more? i never though i would be wishing for af to get here. dh and i are leaving for florida in 2 weeks for vacation, and i just know she will probably show right when we're getting ready to leave. i just wish i was normal! baby dust to everyone this month!
sorry to say....but it can take up to 3 weeks after starting provera for your period to start. i have had to take it twice in the last year...the first time, I started af on the 3rd day...this last time, i started on the 8th day....but the nurse told me when i went in to get it, that it could possibly take as long as 3 weeks, to not panick if i hadnt started by the time i finished taking them.
it took me 5 days after the last pill to get af, so there is no need to worry. actually worrying might make af come even later ... try not to stress out too much. stress and sickness can delay your af. i was told my my doctor that my af would come 4 days after i stopped. but it came a day late because on the espected day i was sick with a stomach flu and had to go to the hospital for dehydration. stress can do all kinds of crazy things to your body. maybe that vacation is what the doctor ordered to relax your mind and get your body back on track.
btw, you should not expect to get af while still on the medication. it is stopping it that causes af to come (because provera is basically progesterone and whitdrawal from it induces a period.)
I wanted to correct you....she CAN get her AF while still taking Provera.. It can go either way....while still taking them....or after she has completed taking them. I took them myself twice....due to M.I.A. period.....the first time, I started af on the 3rd day of taking them and didnt have to finish taking them.....the second time, I started af on the 8th day...and had to continue taking the last 2 pills. (thats what they told me to do...if i started on the 8th or 9th day...to finish taking the pills anyway)...so yes, you can start AF at anytime during or after taking Provera.
