What Is Provera

I called my Dr. and I have to go in for bloodwork next week, and she mentioned something about a provera shot, to basically induce my period, so that I get it. What exactly is the provera shot? Will it force me to ovulate, or is it the same as the pill, and when I go off of it? Is it hormones? Will it help my period come every month now? So confusing...

It is a shot to make you start your period. But before you take it I would suggest making sure your not pregnant. My aunt got all negatives on her pregnancy tests and her doctor kept giving her provera to make her start her period but it never started. She finally when to get another opinion and the doctor did a pelvic exam on her and found out that she was four months pregnant and to stop taking the shot but by then it was too late. Her baby was born with no lungs or kidneys due to the shot. It took away her folic acid. So make very certian that your doctor knows your not pregnant.
