Ralovera has anyone ever been put on this while pregnant?

Hi my doctor has just prescribed Ralovera *medroxyprogesterone acetate* for me to take. Has anyone else ever been put on this while pregnant? It is supposed to strenghtan my babies support system due to previous m/s and problems. In the pharmacists info sheet it says do not take if pregnant, suspect your pregnant or if ttc. Also that it may  affect my developing baby?????
It contains oestrogen and is in one case used to protect the lining of the uterus.

Uhm all I gotta say is WTF!! I did my own research and found out that it is used as a contraceptive at higher doses. It is also known as provera or the DEPO SHOT for Birth control. Here's what I found from different sites.

I wouldn't take it and I'd get a new doctor or a 2nd opinion atleast.
