I have not had a period for 4 months. After a round about way to get a direct answer from my doctor, I was told I can take provera 10 mg for ten days. I started spotting on day 7 and am now starting a light period, day 8 and also have cramping. I still have two more pills to go. Is this ok? I thought I wasn't supposed to start until after I was done taking them?? Also, does this mean I shouldn't take the last two pills?

You should continue to take the pills until they are gone. Provera is a progestin, and is used in regulating a woman's period. It is not unusual for you to be having a light period right now. Finish the provera pills and this should reboot your periods to more normal.
Do not worry. This is what's supposed to happen.
If you are still worried, please call your doc.
