I was prescribed 10mg of progesterone for 10 days so I could give my CD 3 blood, and I was to start the pills the day I was given them

My obgyn basically just said if it's not here by the last dose than to just go get my blood drawn anyway


What was your experience with progesterone to jump start your new cycle? When did your period come?

A person I know didn't get her period until 10 days after the last pill. Most on here I've seen starts about a week later.

The progesterone is going to jump start my period/cycle. Aside from my obgyn telling me, I've also read from other women onlne that they've been given it to start it aswell.

So I'm not too sure of it's other uses to be honest!

I was always told to take it for 7 days and I normally started between days 7 -9.

That's what I've thought too. With that being the case I don't know why she doesn't want me to wait afterwards! But, I think she just wants to see my blood results already since I was ordered the CD 3 bloodwork back at the end of Jan

Thank you! I'm hoping it shows up before I finish them

I had to stop taking my progesterone in order to finally start my period but that was mixed with estrace as well for a totally different protocol. I stopped taking it Thursday and finally started bleeding today.
