Why were you taking them if you don't mind me asking? were you taking them after ovulation, possibly for a low progesterone issue? Or were you taking them to 'jump start' your period after being late?

Either way, for the most part, it won't delay your period. If you are going to start, you can start while you are still taking the progesterone. If you are taking it to 'jump start' your body needs to have the 'withdrawl' effects so it is best to give it a week before you call your doctor (and you are testing negative).

Have you tested? If not I suggest you do that. The progesterone will not effect the results.

Period 2 weeks late on progesterone supplement
My period is now 2 weeks late - after taking 12 days of progesterone from days 14-24 of my period...I have some mild acne - wondering now if I could be pregnant...
seems unlikely as I"m 51 - yet have had a regular 28-day cycle for the past 10 years...any other reason I could be 2 weeks late?

I was taking them after ovulation to stop the spotting that occurs a week before my af and to help I guess boost the horomones that I lack. So Its now day 32 of my 28 day cycle with no signs of af. Which I thought was due to the pills, I wasnt clear on when to quit taking them, so I stopped on day 27. Now my boobs are so sore and I feel very sick but thought it could be the side effects of the meds bc on day 30 I had a bfn and with dr telling us we cant concieve naturally Im now ruling that out. When I talked to the dr he said it could be 2 days to two weeks till af comes so now im confused why you would give those to someone who is ttc bc now my cycle is off whack! I just want to cry uncontrollably in bed all alone life gets worse day by day it seems, and yet I never get accurate answers Crying or Very sad

Post surgery for an ovary and cyst removal, I went off birth control pills. First two periods came on time and I was super happy with my life Smile until the next period was missed. The doc did an ultrasound, ruled out pregnancy, and told me that my AF is due, anytime soon. Still a week later, nothing came. So he put me on progesterone for 10 days and told me NOT to stop the dose even if AF arrived. You shouldn't discontinue a dose or your AF can abruptly stop in the middle of the flow period. Anyway, this month again I missed AF and have waited 2 weeks. Will talk to him tomorrow. In all possibility he would also check my progesterone levels and put me on supplements.

However he is very encouraging- he tells me each time that with one ovary also, I can make many eggs and get pregnant by the end of the year. That's how your doctor should be!!! Btw, he is the one who performed my surgery and with whom I consult.

A doc can tell you with surety that you cannot conceive naturally ONLY when all the options have been exhausted. From your explanation it does not seem that all the possibilities have closed down. It is insensitive for your doc to even say such a thing that can have only adverse mental and physical consequences for you. In any case I think that you should switch doctors if you feel confused or in need of more advice- clearly you're not getting it from them.

Prgesterone and TTC
I agree with what you are saying. I am taking 100 mg of these pills too- I was told to take 4 per day 2 in AM and 2 in the PM for 3 weeks following ovulation. I ovulate on day 18 and my cycle is always on day 28 -= now its day 31 and no sign of it- Tested with clearblue and NEGATIVE- so now I am off whack too-

Trying to get pregnant with PCOS taking progesterone pills.
I am trying to get pregnant and was recently diagnosed with PCOS. I have one son who is 2 yrs old and he was a surprise I wasn't even trying to get pregnant. We decided to start trying agagin about 9 months ago then suddenly my periods just stopped. I have never missed one except when I was pregnant with my son. So the doctor ordered some tests and diagnosed me with PCOS. He put me on progesterone pills 12 days a month to help regulate my cycle and make me ovulate. He says if I'm not pregnant in 5 moths we will try something else. Has anyone got pregant on the pill and how long did it take. Please any info would be helpful. I am still trying come to terms with havingPCOS and that fact that i am going to have to calulate all the the dates when I tought that I was going to get pregnant easily like i did with son. Please anyone with any advice let me know I will be truly thankful!!

missed period and no ovulation
I have been missing my cycle for several months now. I went to the doctor and it was determined that I am not ovulating at all. I have been trying to concieve my second child and it is much harder thn the first. I have been put on Progesterone for ten days. I am suposed to cound 30 days into my cycle and then test for pregnancy. If negative I should keep trying for 4 months. I am due back to see the doctor. If I am still not pregnant by then she is going to add clomid but she said often times women have twins or triplets on this type of medicine. All that I know is I want another baby and when the time is right it will happen. Its just fustrating and I feel helpless because its not my husbands issue, its my body that is messing up for us.

You shouldnt start a period until a few days after you stop taking the progesterone. I currently have a 7 year old son and have been trying for the last two years. I have only started progesterone tablets 1x3 times a day since last thursday so only three days left. Then as soon as af arrives I will start my first round of clomid. Good luck to all trying

Yes, please be patient, my periods started only 4-5 days AFTER COMPLETING MY 10 DAY progesterone dose. Keep waiting, it has to come. Some people get their AF within 2 days of the dose, some a week after the dose. BUT PLEASE COMPLETE THE DOSE and DON'T stop abruptly.

I had a very hard time getting pregnant with my first child. I tried everything. I started taking progesterone on my third day of ovulation for 10 days and I also had dye ran through my tubes and I got pregnant right after that...so I dont know if it was from the progesterone or the dye. My daughter is now 16 months old Smile I am now trying to get pregnant again and having the same problem...so I have been put back on progesterone. This is my 10th day of taking it. Im supposed to start my period today but it hasnt come...so I dont know if its because it delayed my period or not. Trying not to get my hopes up too soon.

10 day Progesterone course, pregnancy symptoms but all test neg
Hi, I was put on progesterone for 10 days after a positive ovulation test. I used to get my period every 14 days but I don't think I was ovulating that frequently. I kept taking the ovulation test while I was taking the progesterone. On the 10th day I had another positive ovulation result. I have not had my period in 4 weeks, and have symptoms of tender and heavy breast, frequent urination and nausea, but all my pregnancy test are negative. Is this normal? Could I still be pregnant?
