Since a period usually starts due to the drop in progesterone, taking Provera will often be able to prevent a period from starting. However, Provera 10mg may not be enough to do the job. I would recommend taking Provera 20mg daily to be more sure of delaying your period.

if I started taking 20mg starting today and continued to take it through the 22nd you think that would be enough?
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, I think that would work well.
