It is highly doubtful that you are pregnant.  Provera is used to spike your levels of progesterone and it is the drop that causes the bleed and, thus, the resetting of the cycle.


If you are on your period...especially the first couple of days of your period, then you haven't yet ovulated so pregnancy is not possible
