I was just wondering if anyone had any idea on how long it generally takes someone to start their period after taking the 5 day Provera doses?? My Dr. put me on Metformin 500mg 2x a day...and I took the Provera with it for 5 days...my last Provera pill was 4 days ago..and still no AF....I have my Clomid, but cant start taking that until Im 5 days into my cycle! This whole process is confusing me! lol
I have heard that it varies from person to person. Since we all react differently to medicine. I thought though that it should have been here by now.
I would call the Doc to check and see what they say. You can also join one of the TTC boards based on how long you have been TTC. There is a JSO, 6 month, and 12 months board. Those ladies are extremely helpful.
Hi, my doc also put me on Metformin and I took Provera as well. She said it would take 7 days after the last pill. I took it for 5 days and my last pill was on Tuesday and no AF yet. I'm getting anxious too because I'm doing clomid on day 5 of my cycle.
I have always taken the Povara 10 day pill, not the five day pills but I can tell you that when I took it for the first time I got my period on exacatly the 10th day. My doctor's office told me I should expect AF within a week after taking the last pill and I received it on the 10th day. However, the second time I took Povara, which was just two-three weeks or so ago (I was also on Metformin since my gyno told me to start both the Povara and the Metformin at the same time.) and I got AF the 11th day. However, AF only lasts about 3-4 days at max. Is this normal for everyone else? I have had serious acne problems and diarrhea with Metformin does anyone have these same effects? Thanks for the advice and best of luck to everyone!
If you eat a lot of sugar while taking the metformin it will cause an upset stomach. The medicine is made to help keep your sugar level under control. I know that I have taken Provera with my Metformin before and had the same issues, you have to learn to manage your diet with it. Good luck with everything.
