Is it safe to take 20mg of provera day after had unprotected intercourse during my ovulation day? Trying to conceive but have issues with hormonal imbalances, irregular period (not ovulating last cycle) that's why have to take provera. Thank you.

Dear June,

I am not sure why you would be taking provera on your ovulation day. This makes no sense at all. You mention that you have hormonal imbalance and problems with anovulation and hence irregular cycles. The provera was likely prescribed to assist you to bring on a period. 

Please consult with your gynaecologist to provide you with clarity regarding your medication. You may also want to consider asking your gynae to prescribe you some medication to assist with ovulation.
