I am 36y.o. My doctor gave me 5 days provera due to not getting my period for a long time. Then prescribed 28 day alesse. I took the alesse when i got my period after taking the provera. I still have my period and today is the 17th day. I am worried but when i called my doctor she said it's normal and that my period should go away. Has anyone experienced this? Is this normal? Please help!

Welcome to this forum.
I presume you have some hormonal disturbances inside you. May be it can be due to cystic ovaries or thyroid disorders. Hormonal medicines will help you temporarily and symptomatically. But you need a further investigations.So,meet any ObG consultant for an opinion.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
