So, I had a d&c on June 24th and I have not started my period yet. It has been 46 days. My OBGYN gave me a progesterone oil injection on August 3rd. He said I should get my period by today, August 9th. But nothing so far. I read that it can take up to 14 days for the progesterone shot to kick start your period. Any experience with this? I feel lost.....I just want to get my period and start all over again.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I had a D&C on May 20th and did not have a period for 8 weeks. My doc put me on progesterone pills for 10 days. My period started 3 days later but they said it may take up to 10 days after the last pill. I would give it a few more days and then call your doctor. Did you take a pregnancy test before taking the injection?
Let me know if I can help in any other way. Good luck to you.
