No: It is Progesterone which is often used to support pregnancies due to inadequate luteal support occurring naturally.

Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone): Possible not likely. It is not a treatment to effect abortion.

Yes: It is possible but unlikely to get pregnant while on depo. The only way to know is to check a pregnancy test.
