I am 23 yo and was prescribed 10 mg of provera for 7 days to stop the bleeding and then take a pap smear. I had no menstrual periods with some dryness for at least 3 months and then started spotting about 5 months ago so I went to the doctor. My last pill was a week ago and 3 days later I started heavy bleeding and it has not stopped. I am hoping this is how the pill works as I read somewhere else that it took someone two weeks after the heaving begin for the bleeding to stop completely.

My periods have always been irregular since I was a teenager but recently they have stopped completely and I have this vaginal bleeding or spotting nearly everyday and the dryness when I am not bleeding has made me feel uncomfortable during sex. Any ideas? The provera was prescribed only to stop the bleeding but not to find the cause and I have had blood tests done and all my chemicals, liver, thyroid, etc came back normal except ferritin (iron storage levels) of course. Need help?!
