I was prescribed medroxyprogesterone 5mg for 5 days hoping to induce my period and its been 4 days and I haven't gotten it...the doctor made it sound like it was going to happen within a couple days after taking it...but nothing has happened....should I call the doctor and go back in and see if there is anything else or am I just rushing things and I will get it eventually

Welcome to e health forum.

You need not worry.

With the current regimen provided by your doctor, you should have your periods within 2-7 days after you have completed the course of medicine.

A positive response due to treatment with medroxyprogesterone includes - any bleeding more than light spotting that occurs within 2 weeks after completion of the dose.

Just relax and follow up with your doctor if you have any doubts.

I hope this helps.
