Provera is a form of progesterone, just not a particularly good one, I believe. It would do the job though. Bio-identical hormones are always a gentler option and practically eliminate the risk of nasty side effects.

I have a website with loads of PCOS info www.mypcos.info Please stop by!

I had the same problem. I bled for nine months and couldn't find a doctor that could tell me why. I finally found one that diagnosed me with PCOS. Because I have high blood pressure I can't take birth control. She put me on Provera for ten days a month. I have a normal period now as long as I take the meds.
Hope this helps!

Hi QT,
It sounds to me like you are low in progesterone. If you can get your hands on some natural progesterone cream (not wild yam cream, it needs to be USP) that should stop the bleeding within a few days.

If you are new to PCOS there is a lot of information on my website which may help you learn about PCOS, what causes it, what the current research is telling us and how it can be treated. www.mypcos.info

Good luck.

Is it it a heavy flow...Or low flow and spotty? I'm not sure why your doctor would let you bleed nonostop for a year. If it's a low flow and spotty it's probably not a real period. You should be put on something to induce a period to shed all the lining that has been building up not have a normal flow in so long...If it's heavy you should find a new doctor to figure out why you could be bleeding for so long. I've heard women say thier doctors gave them Birth control pills to help stop the non stop heavy bleeding.
