I Have a question. My daughter just stopped having her period and her Physician prescribe Provera. Im very concern with this drug since I read all the sides effects and the uses of this drug. We are in the process of divorce and I read that it could be possible that the stress caused by our situation is the cause of this disorder. Can you enlight me in my daughter condition?

Hi and Welcome Lafuria123,

A change in periods can be caused by many different factors. If she is not having any other medical/gynecological symptoms and you are concerned about side effects talk to her doctor about the other possible reasons for the change and if it is OK to wait it out for awhile.

Divorce is never easy, I hope things go as smooth as possible and your daughter is able to verbalize her feelings and talk through the process.

Hope this is helpful,
