I took Provera for 7 days not knowing I'm pregnant.
I'm so scared that it would harm the baby.
Would this get higher chance to have miscarriage?

thank you in advance.

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Taking Provera in the first trimester could be risky.
It increases chances of birth defects in the baby sometimes leading to miscarriage.
Discuss your risks with your healthcare provider/gynecologist/perinatologist about chances that baby would have already got any harm.
Proceed with further steps as suggested by them.
All the best. Take care.
