Provera - How long to stop the bleeding

My LAVH is scheduled for 10/17 . The bleeding this week has gotten so heavy (24 pads since Monday evening) that I had to call in for "stop leak"

My previous Dr would have called in aygestin. This one called in Provera. A full script through day of surgery. How long is this going to take to stop the bleeding? The Aygestin was usually within 12-18 hours. Any Ideas?

Starri {{{hugs}}} to you!

Have never heard of aygestin but for it to stop the flow in 18 hours I wish I had!

(high doses of prometrium never did work for me either)

so sorry you are dealing with this.

your date is so close! hang in there!

Oh it would stop it that quick, but if you didn't take it EXACTLY when you were supposed to, it would start back up full force

Think that is same as Norethisterone- so just over a day and I've been on it last 30 days with no bleed. Hope it does same for you.
