I didn't have to take mine, started AF on my own on the day I was supposed to start the pills (wish I had known this before I spent 20$ on a prescription).  I know that if you haven't had AF in awhile then the AF will be terrible.  Other than that it's similar side effects to what you would have during your LP but probably a little magnified (sore boobs, nausea, ect).  

If you aren't getting a regular AF, you really need to to be able to get pregnant so if you aren't talk to your doctor, it certainly can't hurt.

Estrace is estrogen, I was on estrogen to build up my uterine lining after having adhesions and retained tissue removed from my uterus, then on day 16 of estrace I started taking the provera (progesterone) once a day, stopped after 10 days. The only thing I noticed was a crazy high libido, lol.
I'm not sure what the normal is? What did your doc say?

Oh okay. :) haha my hubby can't keep up with me now. So higher libido would kill him. Haha. My doc didnt say how long. He had mentioned this my last long cycle but I was scared it would mess everything up.

Not to sound rude, but if your cycles are 70 days etc. they are already "messed up". I think in your situation it can't hurt to remind your body it's time for a period.
