    I took it at night and had no side-effects. I didn’t bled until several days after and it was only spotting.

    Jayceedee:  If you think you may have ovulated, I’d wait 14 days and then take a test to make sure you’re not pregnant before beginning the Provera.

    To answer your other questions, you won’t start bleeding on Provera, you will get a withdrawal bleed 3-7 days after the last pill.  As for side effects, Provera is similar to progesterone so you can expect PMS-type symptoms (fun!).

    Jayceedee:  It doesn’t sound silly, it sounds proactive.  In that case, you could start immediately but I voted to wait until after your vacation just in case you do experience side effects.  Personally, I was very moody and weepy on Provera — not the way I’d want to spend my anniversary trip!

    Jayceedee:  I’m on Provera every 3 months. I don’t get my period until 7-9 days after finishing the 10 day dose. I’m on day 3 right now. There are no side effects during the 10 day dose. When I do get my period,  they come in fast and furious and last for about 10 days. If you start today, you’ll be done on Wednesday, April 1, and you probably won’t get your period until April 8th or so.
