Medroxyprogesterone (provera) while ttc.

Medroxyprogesterone, I've been off birth control since July, my periods were getting further apart every month until it didn't come last month and I kept getting negative tests, so my doc put me on provera for 10 days, I started my period while taking it and doc said to finish taking it. I'm wondering if anyone got pregnant after taking it, and if so how soon? Thanks!
