What brand are you taking? And are you taking them orally or vaginally?

I use prometrium and I use 200mg for 7 days (vaginally) and usually get my period within 7 days.

Is your doc your regular doc or an RE (reproductive endocrinologist)? I wonder if you are taking enough? If you are taking 10mg orally very little is going to make its way to your uterus!

@sheclicksherheels:  It looks like 10mg is the right dose for provera. I know how frustrating it can be when your body doesn’t work and even the meds to make it work don’t work properly.

I would assume that your bleeding will start and that your body is just confused and I hope that your bleeding starts soon. But if it doesn’t start by the 3rd I’d definitely make an appointment to see your doc.

Good Luck!

@sheclicksherheels:  I am currently taking provera and my doctor said it could take up to two weeks after taking the last pill for AF to come on.  Fingers crossed yours comes soon!
