    Common side effects of Ralovera:

    - menstrual irregularities- prolonged bleeding- spotting- cessation of periods- depression- weight gain- moderate increase in blood pressure- decreased glucose toleranceIncreased appetite:The most commonly reported side effect is an increase in appetite, causing some people to put on weight. Nausea and indigestion:Occasionally nausea is are present for the first few weeks of taking medroxyprogesterone acetate, but often the nausea then disappears. It can usually be relieved by taking the tablets with food and milk.Fluid retention:Some people have experienced mild ankle swelling caused by fluid retention. This is not harmful but can be uncomfortable.Vaginal bleeding (in women):Occasionally women may have some light vaginal bleeding (spotting) while having treatment with medroxyprogesterone acetate.

    Uncommon side effects

    - nausea- vomiting- headache- dizziness- lethargy- breast discomfort- decreased libido- acne- backache- leg cramps- decreased hair growth/hair loss- bloating- hot flushes- nervousness- insomnia- fatigue- tremor- hives- itching- injection site reactions- fever- changes in vaginal and cervical secretions

    @leyshoja Yep, checked the other 2 out as well and it's much of a muchness as far as side effects go. The fact that you haven't had these side effects before I'm means that a BFP is on the way for you!!!

    @MaxKat Good Luck on your next Cycle Luv the change in meds = lots of lovely follies for EPU!!!

    @leyshoja i hope you don't get those side effects there. They sound awful. I never had any of those meds so I can't really comment.

    Ralovera is provera that they use to bring on AF which is interesting, I guess its just a megadose of progesterone at the end of the day.

    I've had sore boobs from progesterone before. And nurses said to me at the time it can happen. Don't give up hope though.
    @Bongley I'll have the wines for you! Had a cpl last night but was so worried about having a hangover (I haven't had a drink in ages) I stopped after a cpl!

    Thanks @Chiefsgirl, please everyone have as many drinks on my behalf as you like. It's as close to prayer as I'm willing to accept

    Provera/ralovera prevents af for me and the clinic always tell me to keep in mind that I won't get af until I stop taking it. .? As soon as the embies are thawed I go on it until either bfp or bfn and in the case of bfn I go off it and along comes af two days later.

    Yeah its the stopping of it that triggers AF when P2 levels drop, I'd just never heard of it used in a cycle but it makes sense x
