Dear Michelle

The use of Provera to induce a bleed or endometrial shedding is reasonable. However this will not necessarily result in ovulation or pregnancy and on the contrary it may actually prevent implantation. Therefore my advice would be for you to visit a fertility specialist and to consider alternative methods of ovulation induction which will help your fertility problem.
