Hi, I have read all the answers above but it seems that I cannot find anyone taking provera the way I have been told to,
I bleed badly for 3 months, I was then put on provera to stop it (I understand this) but everyone else seems to be doing it for 10 days. I was advised to take it for 24 days then stop taking it for four days the continue in this cycle for four months.
The issue I'm also having is that when I stop taking it I still don't bleed. I have PCOS but a case where I don't bleed for months and months on end then when I do it cripples me and I end up in hospital.
I am wondering should I be taking the medication in this form? Should I bleed while taking this? Just confused and all help would be great as I have been ttc for 5 years now.
