"Thromboembolic disorders including thrombophlebitis and pulmonary embolism have been reported". This is from Drug.com in a search for side effects of provera. Thrombo must means blood clots. Personally, I took provera for about 8 years and did just fine, but I didn't have the problems that your wife has. I'd ask a pharmacist about it.-try to get a second opinion-Many of us live in areas with very few doctors or don't have insurance. I'm also finding a decline in the knowledge of pharmacists-so I think that you are in a hard place. One of the sponsors of this site is justanswer.com You might want to type that in the address bar or search- they have a ton of doctors-specialists, nurses, etc-and for about $15-20 you can pick a doctor and get an answer. I found them on this site and I've asked legal, Honda, Ford, and dog questions-as they have so many types of specialists. They have a picture- the back ground and a satisfaction rating. If you feel they aren't answering your question, you can tell what doesn't make sense. Call a couple of pharmacies tomorrow and ask-would you take provera if you had blood clots in your liver? It's a yes or no question, and it should help you in talking to your doctor more about this.
good luck and get back to me about this. You have my prayers.
