Is It Too Soon To Take Provera?

What is Provera?

Provera is a drug that is used to help women that have irregular periods. Provera is taken in order to induce a period. Provera is a form of the hormone progesterone. Provera works by stimulating your body into thinking it is at the end of your cycle, when progesterone is normally very high.  Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

The Provera helps to build up your uterine lining. When you stop taking the Provera, the uterine lining starts to shed, and your body thinks it is time to start your period. Provera can also help with implantation of the embryo since it helps to repair the uterine lining.

Not too soon

If you are taking Provera, it is important not to start it too soon. Your doctor will help you decide when it will be best for you to start taking Provera. Provera normally brings on your period within five days or so after you stop taking it. Your doctor will help you set the schedule that you will use to take Provera.

Your doctor will probably have you take the pill at the same time every day, so it will be easier to remember. It is important that you don’t take Provera too soon, or it will bring on your period before it is supposed to. Your doctor will be able to tell you exactly when to start taking Provera.

Provera side effects

Provera does have a few side effects that women need to be aware of when taking it. Before your period starts, some women say that Provera makes them extremely fatigued and tired. This is normal, according to doctors. There are also other side effects reported as well.

Some of the most common ones are bloating, anxiety, mood swings, and headaches. These side effects are usually pretty mild however, and usually go away pretty quickly. Your doctor can give you ideas for how to deal with these side effects also.

Seek your physician’s assistance

For the most part, Provera is usually well tolerated in women who take it, and it usually does its job (bringing on your period) very well. Your doctor will be able to let you know if you need to take an additional medication along with Provera, such as Clomid.

Provera is very good at getting your body to start a new cycle. While it won’t necessarily help you ovulate, it can help to get your body back on the right track.
