not likely. this drug is better known as provera and is simply a horomone balancer for estrogen. it helps regulate periods and lessen the effects of menepause in other women. it should help you. ido have a question though is it a heavy or lite every time? that can make a difference as to what might be the problem. feel free to get in touch and ask whatever it is you wish to know.
