The information provided in the summary table is for reference only. It is important to consult a qualified healthcare professional before starting any period delay treatment, including Provera.

How effective is Provera?

When used as prescribed by your doctor, Provera is known to effectively delay periods. Once you stop taking the Provera tablets, your period will return 1 to 3 days later.

In many cases, Provera is as effective at delaying your periods as the contraceptive pill. If a woman does not use a combined contraceptive pill, then Provera is a good alternative for effective period delay treatment. It is also recommended as a safe option for anyone who cannot take contraceptive pill due to being at risk of vaginal bleeding because of deep in thrombosis or developing blood clots.

How does Provera work?

Provera’s active ingredient, medroxyprogesterone, is a synthetic form of the female hormone progesterone. A drop in progesterone levels each month triggers the uterus to shed the lining, which women experience as their monthly period. By taking Provera and keeping those progesterone levels high with the use of the synthetic progestin, the period is delayed.

What is contained in Provera?

The active ingredient in Provera is medroxyprogesterone acetate. Tablets contain 2.5mg, 5mg or 10mg of this ingredient.

The inactive ingredients found in each Provera tablet include:

  • 2.5 mg: Lactose monohydrate, sucrose, maize starch, liquid paraffin, talc, calcium stearate, sunset yellow (E110), purified water.
  • 5 mg: Lactose monohydrate, starch, sucrose, liquid paraffin, calcium stearate, talc, the colour FD & C Blue No. 2 Aluminium Lake, purified water.
  • 10 mg: Lactose monohydrate, sucrose, maize starch, liquid paraffin, talc, calcium stearate, purified water.

Choosing between Provera and Norethisterone

Provera and Norethisterone are both very effective as period delay tablets, but the effects of each vary depending on the person. Your doctor will determine the more suitable option to delay your period after considering your medical history.

What dose of Provera should I take?

You should not take Provera if you are under the age of 18. Make sure to take this medicine exactly as directed by your GP. The number of tablets you need to take every day depends on how long you wish to delay your period. 

It is advised to take Provera 10mg tablets 3 times a day.

  • 1 pack (30 tablets) = 7 days period delay
  • 2 packs (60 tablets) = 17 days period delay

How should I take Provera?

Provera must be taken as directed by your doctor, and if you are uncertain, you can ask one of our pharmacists or doctor by booking a free appointment with our online pharmacy.

To delay your period you should begin taking Provera tablets 3 times a day, 3 days prior to the time you wish to delay your period from. You then continue taking them in this same fashion until the end of your prescription, after which your period will begin in between 1 and 3 days.

Do not take a smaller or larger dosage than that which is prescribed for you, as you will have been given the necessary amount for your personal requirement. If you miss a dose and it is nearly time for your next tablet, then wait for that and do not double dose up. If you remember within a few hours of the missed dose  you can then take it.

For further information read the patient information leaflet

How long can I take Provera for?

For period delay, Provera is ideally used only for a short period of time, usually around 10 days. If you will require it for a longer time, for example, if you are travelling, being placed on bedrest or booked to have an operation, then you can discuss this with your doctor, and they will advise you on the best option for your health and safety.

What are the side effects of Provera?

As with any other medication used, side effects are possible, but your doctor will have weighed up the possible risks for you, so you should experience them as mildly as possible. Unexpected issues can still occur if your body finds it is unable to tolerate the medicine. If this occurs, then speak to your doctor right away.

The most common side effects in women using Provera have been found to be:

  • Nausea,
  • Headaches and
  • Vaginal bleeding and/or spotting.

Still common but less occurring side effects include:

  • Fluid retention
  • Breast tenderness
  • Weight gain
  • Dizziness
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Acne
  • Heavy future periods
  • Painful future periods

These should all be mild enough not to stop you using the medication and should ease over the course of the prescription. If they do not and you are struggling with the side effects, consult your doctor.
