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!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Medroxyprogesterone prescribed was to induce your period if not pregnant. If you had been pregnant you may not have had the bleeding. If you still suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
