Provera worked the first time, but not the second...

Postby mamie2shoes » Tue Oct 13, 2009 2:59 pm

Ok so after I had my son I went on birth control. I stopped taking birth control a year after his birth so we could start TTC again. Well I didn't get a period for 3 months so the doctor prescribed me Provera to bring on a period. 2 days after finishing the last pill I got AF. Well a month went by and I didn't get AF again, so the doctor prescribed me another round of Provera AND clomid once I got AF...problem is, I didn't get AF. If it worked the first time shouldn't it work again? (will call the doctor once my 2 weeks has passed, which it's almost done, but I don't even feel like it's coming!)

Note : I've always had normal periods before becoming pregnant with my son.

Hello,
Childbirth often disrupts a woman's cycle and you can't predict what yours will be after by what it was before. Provera often works for this purpose, but not always (as you have seen). Hormones do fluctuate and women sometimes miss periods for no apparent reason. One thing you can depend on with the human body is that it is not always predictable. Just because it "worked" before is no guarantee it will again.

I would wait it out and see what happens over a couple of months' time. While you are trying to conceive, it just may still take a little more patience. We don't have as much control over these things as we would like to believe. Time is sometimes the cure. If not, you should consult with your doctor again.

Good luck.

I can happily say I started AF today!!! So it did end up working!!! It was VERY late, but she came :) :) Thank you for your prompt response, it made me a little less stressful, which I think helped bring on AF! I start my first round of clomid today so fingers crossed!!
