Provera is derived from the

Provera is derived from the female hormone progesterone. You may be given Provera if your menstrual periods have stopped. While Provera is often successful in getting you to have a period, it does not regulate your menstrual cycle, nor does it cause you to ovulate. You probably aren’t going to have a lot of luck getting pregnant unless you get to the bottom of why you aren’t having periods. A quick trip to the doctor for a hormone panel is probably necessary so you can find out what’s going on. There are a wide range of possibilities for why you aren’t having a period – overweight, underweight, PCOS and more. Find out why first, then you can focus on baby-making.
