Taking Progesterone for fertility but now period is late
My physician recommended taking natural progesterone 100mg vaginally to help with my progesterone levels and optimizing my fertility; He said to take them after I ovulate, usually day 14 or 15 and stop them at day 28 when my cycle normally starts and if my pregnancy test was negative. I stopped it at day 26 because I was out of town and forgot to take my pills, but I have not had my cycle. My pregnancy test is negative (checked x2). Did taking the progesterone mess up my cycle? How many more days will it take to get a period? What do I do if I don't get a period-and when should I start to panic!! Could this be something else?
Well, it's definitely possible that you could be pregnant & there's just not enough hcg to register on an hpt yet... The other possibility is that, yes, progesterone can delay your period. It happened to me every time. Usually, it shows a few days after you stop the progesterone. I hope for the best for you :) Just give it a few more days & test again or call your doc & see what they say. Best wishes!
