Provera can delay your period most effectively when it is taken atleast 3 days before starting the period as it takes sometimes to build up the hormone in your blood however you can still take it but it might not be that effective.

Hope this helps.

I started my period today, does the time started not matter much either?

Thanks for the reply.

Once you started bleeding it usually does not matter but still it can shorten the length.
