    Default Provera

    I was advised to start Provera on CD32 then start Serephene. I was sure I ovulated CD27 so decided not to take the Provera and wait for my period. I usually have a roughly 40 day cycle but I'm now on day 57 and I've done a few pregnancy tests that are all negative. Does anyone know if you can start the Provera at any time? Can I start taking it now?

    Thanks, I assumed I could start taking it anytime but didn't want to just in case. I've left a message with the FS office tonight so they'll probably call me back tomorrow. I don't know if they'll give me any info over the phone though, I'm assuming not. Is this your first time on the Provera? I've been putting it off cos I really wanted to get AF without using it but looks like that's not happening...

    Yeah this is my first time on it as I haven't had AF in 8 months and I'm stating clomid so need to have an AF for that to happen. I'm taking my last pill this morning so hopefully AF will show her face soon!

    Hi, long time lurker here. I saw this and HAD to sign up and respond.

    I had really long cycles (40 days to usually 120 but once was 200+ days) and was TTC for a a couple of years before I saw a specialist. They put me on Clomid (100mg) and Provera. I took the provera and Clomid in the first cycle and nothing.... Then the second cycle had to be without anything because I was taking a certain type of antibiotics that I couldnt take with the other stuff. Anyway on that cycle I had ewcm but the ov test was negative late in the cycle. I was told to take Provera on CD 36 onwards, but I wanted to get AF myself. On CD 39 I took a preg test and it was BFN. So I started to take Provera, and a week and a bit later I still hadnt got AF, so I took a Preg test and BFP!!!!!!

    My dates confirm that I ov on CD 30. Which was a few days after the ewcm.

    In case you are wondering, when I first took Provera (on CD 119), it took 5 days after my last tablet to get AF. It can take a couple of days to a week or two after the last tablet to get AF.

    Good luck, and ~*~ Baby Dust ~*~

    This is good to know! Thanks for your reply... So taking the provera didn't hurt your baby then? Cos isn't it meant to make you shed your lining?

    When I first got the Provera the specialist said the first time I use it, I would probably have a "monster period" because of the way it works. Then when I found out I was preg after taking Provera both the GP and the specialist said it was ok during early pregnancy. In fact, Provera is progesterone which some people take in early pregnancy (on doctors orders) to prevent a miscarriage. It is safe to take in early pregnancy.
