How long does a Provera induced period normally last????

I was diagnosed with PCOS and told to take 10mg provera for 7 days sometime during the month of january. I did and finally started my provera induced period after a week of finishing my 7th pill.. how long should i expect it to last...i am scared that i will end up with a 6 week period again like i had that last time????

  • Mine only lasted 5 days and a week the two times I've taken it.

  • I have PCOS and had to take Provera for years. My periods were only about 4 - 5 days. If they last weeks I'd ask my dr about uterine fibroids. They usually cause crazy bleeding.
