    What is Provera Tablets

    Whether you are planning a holiday, your wedding night, or a fun festival weekend and you need to remain period free, Provera can be a safe and easy way to help you achieve a delay to your menstruation. It can also be useful if you are going to be having an operation or require longterm bed rest, though it is wise to discuss this type of extended use of Provera with your doctor as ideally it is best to be used for short term delays of up to 10 days.

    Can I buy Provera Online?

    Provera is a prescription only medication and it will be necessary for you to fill in our online health questionnaire prior to you being approved to purchase it. Once you have completed the assessment, our in-house doctors will confirm that this is the correct treatment for your situation and that it will be safe for you to take. This is based on a number of factors including any other medications you take which may affect how Provera works and whether you suffer from other health issues which may be affected negatively by Provera.

    Once you have your prescription you will not be required to fill in the questionnaire for this product again in the future. You will be sent your medication quickly and discreetly to your chosen address once purchased.

    How effective is Provera?

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

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

    Why choose Provera Pill?

    For any number of reasons, there are occasions when a woman wants to take control of her menstrual cycle and delay it for a few days or a couple of weeks. Provera offers an effective way to do this and is considered a safe option. Alongside being used by women who have no health issues and who simply want to delay the start of their period for a short while, it is the recommended treatment for women who smoke, are overweight, aged 35 or over and any woman at risk of venous thromboembolism.

    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.

    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 at Click Pharmacy or book a free appointment with a doctor online.

    For period delay you should begin taking the tablet 3 times a day, 3 days prior to the time you wish to delay it 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 up. If you remember after only a few hours of the missed pill you can take it.

    How does Provera work?

    Provera’s active ingredient, medroxyprogesterone, is a synthetic form of the female hormone progesterone. A drop in progesterone 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.

    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.

    Can I take Provera whilst pregnant or breastfeeding?

    You must not take Provera whilst pregnant and if you think you might be, your doctor will ask you to take a test before prescribing this medication.

    Although medroxyprogesterone passes into the milk, there is no evidence which shows it harms the baby. If you are breastfeeding though, be sure to speak to your doctor about your concerns prior to beginning a prescription.

    What are the side effects of Provera?

    As with any medication, 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 bleeding and/or spotting.

    Still common but less occurring side effects include fluid retention, breast tenderness, weight gain, dizziness, insomnia, depression, fatigue and acne.

    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.

    Other Warnings to consider

    Although very rare, there is a slightly increased risk of blood clots with Provera usage. If you begin to get a stabbing pain or swelling in one of your legs, pain when you breathe or cough, begin to feel breathless or cough up blood, experience chest pain, numbness, a severe headache or issues with your vision, stop the treatment and seek medical help right away.

    It is vital you also let your doctor know about any other medicines you are taking including vitamins and herbal supplements to ensure there will be no interference between them and Provera.

    Some of the drugs which stop Provera from working as effectively include barbiturates, rifampicin, St John’s wort, aprepitant amongst others, so create a list of all your current medications for your doctor prior to your appointment.

    Provera is not a contraceptive pill and will not stop you getting pregnant; as such you must also use some form of contraception along side Provera.
