Thank you

You should continue with Provera

This is not due to the drug in fact it is your period which came early

So you should continue with the medicine as it will reduce the duration of your periods and will stop in next day or two

Please do let me know if you have any other question

I’m not sure what you mean now. You are saying to continue the pill it will stop in 2 days? Now you are saying it’s inducing my period. That is a nightmare, it’s totally opposite of what I want. No period. So what should I do pls advise

You must continue with the pill and I am sure that it will stop in next couple of days

This pill is a hormone and can be used for various reasons

In your case the doctor has prescribed it for delaying the period

As you have them already before the pill takes it effect so that is why it is imperative to continue so that it help in stopping the period
