Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Provera does not cause pregnancy and it provides protection for pregnancy only if it is taken all throughout the cycle without forgetting.You should have done the pregnancy test the first thing before starting with provera.At least do the test now and then look for other causes.

Hey there, I recently had unprotected sex and have taken the morning after pill 14 hours later. Allthough I take the provera tablets (10mg) does that effect the morning after pill? I use them as directed and stop it each month to get my period but even when I m meant to get my period I don t get one. Should I stop taking my provera tablets now, or when I m next due to stop them? Because I have taken them today and should that effect the morning after pill and does it still work even though I don t get my period? Thanks!

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
