Probably not: You need a pelvic ultrasound to determine the lining of your uterus. You could be miscarrying, and if that's the case, your pregnancy status can be determined by a blood test. If you are pregnant and bleeding like this, you may need d&c, a procedure to evacuate the lining of your uterus. See you physician.

Possibly: Pregnancy is always a possibility. Purchase and perform a home pregnancy test. These usuallly turn positive when you're about a week late. If it's negative, repeat in a week and call your doctor.

No, but...: Provera (medroxyprogesterone) isn't harmful, but won't help you to become pregnant. It sounds like you're not ovulating. Your doctor can prescribe Clomid to help you to ovulate.
