On netdoctor.co.uk it says "to treat periods that have stopped it is taken for three menstrual cycles. In each case, a few days after you stop taking the tablets you should get your period. At the end of the treatment regular periods should occur." I live in the us not the uk but I'd think the same thing would happen to everyone..is this true? It sounds to good to be true because I always see women posting about being on provera for 6+ months w fertility meds when trying to get pregnant. So does provera help bring real periods back after 3 cycles on it or do you have to take it every month just to get only a withdrawal bleed?
