I have been prescribed this for 6 weeks to delay my period.

Has anyone take this and what were the side effects? Am particularly worried about feeling anxious or depressed while on it.

I had it for ten days. I didn't have any side effects actually so I can't really tell you anything.

I've had it for shorter periods with no adverse effects. The only difference was that it made my period lighter than normal

I've emailed my OBGYN and he says if I want I can just take it if I start bleeding badly on holiday.

Don't you have to start it before to prevent bleeding starting rather than take once it has started? I know that is the case with norethisterone

I think it can lessen the flow once it starts.

I was prescribed Provera to bring on a period in order to start a round of clomid.

Yes. That seems to be the most common use for it.

I took provera a lot and didn't seem to have any noticeable side effects. Clomid gave me hot flashes at night but that was it smile
