After being diagnosed with PCOS - my gyane has put me on Metformin. I started taking Provera (5mg) 3 times a day from 3 January, and had my last tablet this past Monday.
Got my period today- last period was in July 2004.

How effective is Provera in establishing normal cycles again?

One course of provera will bring on a period in that cycle, but the Metformin is more likely to have a longterm effect.
