Period in the months after taking provera?

I'm 22 years old and didn't have a period for 7 months, my doctor prescribed 10mg for 10 days to make me have a period. After the 10 days, I had my first period in 7 months and now, it's been 2 months since the provera and I haven't had another period. I was under the impression that it would cause my cycle to become regular again and now that it's not.. I'm not sure what to think about it. I was just wondering if anyone has any advice on this, it would be greatly appreciated!

prior to you losing your period...did you have regular periods? Also, have you lost or gained significant weight, or are you working out signficantly?

I always had a regular period every month and I haven't gained too much weight. I did gain some, I have hypothyroid and hashimotos so I'm not sure if that might have something to do with it. I had been reading about if you didn't have a period then you might not be able to become pregnant down the road and I don't want that.

You may need an adjustment of your thyroid medication to regulate your menstrual cycle. With Hashimotos, thyroid function can vary a bit so it can be harder to regulate the thyroid and resulting metabolism.
