Dear Yolanda:
You do not indicate why Provera was prescribed? The medication is often given to women who do not ovulate on their own and Provera interrupts the estrogen-stimulation of the endometrium to cause menstrual bleeding. This bleeding can be very small in amount or it can be heavy.
I assume the bleeding and the spotting on the 10th day of Provera are linked in time. An isolated episode of bleeding following intercourse can be from local irritation.
If you are concerned that you are pregnant, home pregnancy tests and tests offered through physician offices, health department clinics, or family planning clinics will address the issue.
Provera has theoretic risks in pregnancy and some old literature linked it to poor outcomes. There is no solid evidence that the drug is harmful.
