Default Provera but no period

So you know how people take provera when they are diagnosed w/ pcos. What happens if they take it but don't get a period? what would that mean?

I have taken provera many times, but I always got AF from it. It was like 10 days AFTER I took my last pill. I would call your doc, and maybe they will give u a few more days of it and see if that does the trick.

Good Luck. Hopefully someone here has experienced this as well, and can give u a better answer then me

How long has it been since your last pill? Sometimes it would take me two weeks to get my period after my last pill. If you dont get it after a few weeks call your doctor, you could have low estrogen which would cause no lining to build up which wouldnt allow a period. I have had that in the past when I first went off bcps.

Well yesterday on day 10, i had a barely noticeable bleed. I didn't have one today, so that kind of just raises more questions.

It sounds like low estrogen to me, that is what I use to have all the time till I got my insulin under control through glucophage.

Good Luck at your drs appt.
