Doctor :   Hi
User :   hello
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   I have been diagnosed with secondary Amenorrhea, so my doctor prescribed Provera. I've taken it twice;back to back on a 10 day regimen. It worked, as in making me menstruate. I stopped the medicine thinking that my body will begin menstruating without the help of medicine, but this did not work. I live a low stress life, I do not exercise regularly, and my weight is very stable. What has to be done so that I can mensturate without the help of medicine? and will my no ovulation cause any health issues that i should be aware of?
Doctor :   let me read it
User :   ok
