Provera is not a good choice for women who have PSOS and desire to conceive , provera induces only menstruation if you take it daily for about 7 to 10 days and not always and cannot induce ovulation so you can get pregnant,furthermore if you get pregnant and you have taken provera potentially can affect the development of the embryo, so I would suggest to see a reproductive endocrinologist .
