Hello,

I have already missed 2 periods. I went to the doctor and took a blood test that came out negative.  My doctor thinks I'm not pregnant. She gave me a  prescription for provera 10 mg.
I'm afraid because I had all the pregnancy symptoms and suspected pregnancy.
I've already taken 2 pills. what  if i'm really pregnant what can happen to the baby?

Please let me know if you had a similar situation or know anything about it.

Thanks,

Evelise

Your doctor gave you Provera to make you have a period.  

I think the test is correct.  If you've missed two periods and then took a blood test at the doc's office then you can be about 99.9% sure that you are not pg.

Now, you will take the Provera and you will have a period after you finish taking all your pills.  

To fully answer your question though, if by some crazy chance you are pg, then Provera would cause a miscarriage.  But again, being that you've been to the doctor and they tested you, it's about 99.9% sure you're not pg.

Good luck!

Another thing....again, I'm sure you're not pg, BUT if you were then if the Provera didn't cause a miscarriage then it puts your baby at an increased risk of birth defects.

Why do you still think you are pg even after a negative blood test?

I missed one or two pills and had unprotected sex with my husband.

I felt really sick before I missed my period. I had dizzness nausea. I still have sometimes. I also have pain on my back and at the low abdomen. I could be pregnant or couldn't.

Thank you for your comments!
I appreciate that!!

And let's not forget that if you're worrying about it and such, you can psychologically cause yourself to have pregnancy symptoms when you're not pregnant or in anything.  I hope everything goes well.

Yes, chrimullins makes a good point - pain in your lower back and abdomin could very well be cysts and could explain why you missed a couple periods.

Hello,

I'm trying not to think I'm pregnant. Maybe I am worrying too much. I'm taking  provera 10 mg.
Today I'm feeling very sick, nausea and dizzy. I think it's normal and hopefully my period  will come.
I would be happy if I knew I was  pregnant, but now that I'm taking provera I better not be.
Thank you for your comments. I'll let you know how it goes.
