Dear Robin: “I took Provera in January 2018 to regulate my period and it helped for 5 months. I stopped getting my period again for 2 months so should I take Provera again? Why am I not getting my period?” ~ Demira
Dear Demira: You are not getting your period because your body does not have the resources it needs to have a regular period. Resources are things like healthy protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, sleep, joy (a vital nutrient), walking, water, etc.
Provera does not “regulate” your cycle in any way. It causes bleeding though, in your case, and may give you and your doctor information such as you may have enough estrogen but you’re not ovulating. However, do your research. Provera is a dangerous drug containing progestin that can cause birth defects if you were to become pregnant, and breast cancer, because it is a synthetic progesterone.
Instead, begin with the most important aspect of regulating your menstrual cycle – FOOD. Watch my video here where I give you most of what you need to know about how to eat for hormone balance. There are also other resources on this page, and tons of additional information on our website to help you get regular. Listen to what your body is saying Demira. It knows what to do. ~ Robin
