Provera is an emotional rollercoaster!

I began taking my Provera (to initiate a cycle) on Tuesday evening. My mom recommended I take it at night because a lot of patients get nauseated and that way I could sleep through it. I took my first dose at 9PM, by 11 i was a wreck!! I became infuriated over a petty comment made and blew up at someone that I should not have.... then the waterworks... I started crying and didn't really know why! Yesterday I had an extravaganza with ATT... i cried and yelled at the cable guy and to the customer service people on the phone... so now the world thinks I am insane! Thank goodness I only have to take this med for 10 days... my poor husband might run away by then!!

My GTT/Insulin Resistance test is at 7:45 on Saturday morning... I get to drink some really disgusting glucose stuff and get my blood taken every hour for 3 hours... ugh... wish me luck or rather the phlebotomist, on this Provera I am willing to go crazy on people sticking me and digging around for a vein!

  2. If you think the Provera is bad, you should wait till you get the Clomid. They don't call it Satan's Little White Pill for nothing!

  3. Welcome to the blogging world! I'm here from LFCA. I have pcos too.

    Provera is BY FAR the WORST drug I've ever ever been on for all the reasons you said. I've done clomid a long time ago and while it was bad, it was a cake walk compared to the povera... I'm so sorry! Luckily it doesn't last very long, just long enough for everyone to think your crazy;).

    Good luck on your journey! I'll be following.
