Is the progesterone something you take only a certain number of days a month, and then stop? (Like ten days at the beginning of the month and then twenty days off, and then ten days on and twenty days off?) If it is not, you might call the doctor who prescribed it and ask if it can be taken that way. That should help you have a period after it is "off" that acts more like a regular period.
