Progestin to start my cycles

I stopped taking the pill after almost 6 years in December. I got what I thought was a period in April. I had my annual and I was late again, so I got tested for pregnancy...negative. My NP drew blood to see my if I have ovulated at all since stopping the pill. And I haven't, so she started me on Provera 1 pill daily x 10 days. It is supposed to kick start my cycle to start. She says once I am complete it may be another 2 weeks after that if I get a normal period. If it doesn't work I do a second cycle...and it should be good by then. I'd like to get pregnant in the next 6 months...maybe...if it happens great. I just want my cycle to be normal and to actually ovulate. Has anyone else been through this? Did it work for you?

I have had to use Provera twice to kick start my cycles.

Thanks for answering me. I am glad to know that it may work for me then.

I know this is so long since you posted this but was wondering if the progestin helped you?
