Hi Ladies,

I have a question about Provera and Progynova. I have done an ovulation induction cycle with TI and my Dr has put me on Provera 2 tabs 3 times per day and also Progynova 1 tab 3 times per day. I normally have a cycle of 26-28 days, however today is day 30 and no AF?  Do these drugs keep your AF at bay, or should you get a break though bleed anyway when your period is due?

I appreciate any help

thanks so much rolleyes.gif

Hi there original.gif

I was on Provera to bring back a cycle... and after I stopped Provera, I got a withdrawl bleed about 4 days later (but apparently it can take anywhere from 2-7 days ?) and then 7 days later I got what seemed like 'real' AF. Hope this helps! Sorry I could not be more informative!

Did you get a 'stop' date? Coming off them is what gives you a withdrawal bleed. Or are these drugs being used during your OI cycle LP and you are wondering whether to test?

Hi thanks for your reply.

Yes they are for LP support, so no end date. I had a hcg booster 1500 last Tuesday so 6 days ago. AF is now 2 days overdue and I'm not sure whether the meds are keeping af away and could the booster shot still be in my system?
