My doctor prescribed medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10 days, due to the fact I haven't had regular cycles since ending Mirena IUD 8 months ago. I currently have two pills left to take. But my question is what are my chances of becoming pregnant with this medication, especially as this is my first time taking it? Looking to have a second child just really hope this helps.
I was prescribed medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10 day's. Can I become pregnant?

That particular drug is not a fertility drug. That drug is given if you have abnormal bleeding or absence of bleeding because of a hormonal imbalance. In fact, it can cause fetal abnormalities and should not be taken when women are pregnant. It's injectable form is a form of birth control called Depo-Provera. Likely you have a hormonal imbalance that your doctor is trying to correct at this point so that you can ovulate and conceive on your own before resorting to fertility drugs.
How likely you will become pregnant is based on age, if you are ovulate and have unprotected sex during that time, and if you have any uterine issues that could effect your chances of becoming pregnant like endometriosis, PCOS etc. That is a question you will have to ask your doctor because he has likely given you a full gynecological work up and knows your medical history, hormone levels etc.
