Provera Side-effects?


Some of you may know me from when we tried to conceive our daughter. I've taken provera before as I can't have periods without it but after completing the cycle and starting a bleed as normal, literally all day today I've had a migraine. I haven't had one since before I had my daughter and I've looked it up but can't see it as a side effect to provera but just feels weird that as soon as I finish them I get this migraine? Also when I have migraines, I get them, then after a few hours and some pain relief they go. This time it's coming back every few hours? Has anyone else experienced this?

Maybe it’s your body just trying to get used to different hormones again? I suffer with hormonal migraines. I take evening primrose oil to help balance my hormones which does help with them and my pms symptoms which can be very unpleasant. I know mine are hormonal as they occur during my cycle when I know there’s some sort of hormone surge or dip. All the best trying to sort them out. They really are unpleasant. I feel for you. xxx


Hi Kitty. This is a long lasting hormone treatment that works on your pituitary gland in the brain, hence the migraines. I would mention it to your clinic in case they want to swap to a different drug. Good luck! Diane
