Mandy - that sounds like someone's got their info wrong - Provera will still not make a period come if in fact the person is pregnant. It is a synthetic male hormone given to a woman to induce a period.

It can in some cases cause some abnormalities in the growing fetus if taken while pregnant, and the doctor would usually want to have a level III u/s done to see organ growth in depth etc.

I can not imagine any doctor prescribing it KNOWING that the person is pregnant. Either your friend lied to the doctor, using her own misinformation thinking if she gets a period she'll abort the pregnancy (which, Provera won't do) OR she is not telling the whole truth and is not preggo, but really getting Provera to induce her period.

If her doctor prescribed Provera on her word of not being pregnant - he is very irresponsible. He should do a blood preggo test before handing over such a harmful drug!
