Hi can you fall pregnate while taking provera (medroxyprogesterone)? I have been taking provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 10day to induce a cycle but still have been trying to fall pregnate

Provera (medroxyprogesterone) provides the Progesterone that is normally produced after natural ovulation. Ask your provider if you're annovulatory or not. ...Read more
