Customer Question

I would like some advice/ clarification on using Provera 10 mg to delay my period for a vacation. My Dr. prescribed me 10mg for once a day starting 3 days prior to my start date. I have read alot about taking it 5mg, 3 times per day, so i am wondering if 1 10mg per day is sufficient??

This is Dr. David

actually 5-10mg once a day is the recommended dose and can be used to try to stop and delay uterine bleeding and stop abnormal uterine bleeding.

this dose can be used for 5-10 days to prevent a period. you may not need the 5mg three times a day dose.

let me know if you have questions.
