    Hi! I went to the doctor since I haven't gotten my period in a little over a month (history of long periods) and we are trying to concieve. She put me on provera and told me to take the pills and my period would come. Last night before I went to bed I took my first pill and in the middle of the night I started my period. Do I finish taking the pills or stop?? I would call my doctor, but they are closed on weekends. I'm not sure what to do.

    Thanks!!

    Hope you called your doctor anyway. Most doctors have a system for handling after hours calls so you're not left stranded when the unexpected happens. Good luck!
