43yr old Taking bio-identical (from compounding pharmacy) Progestorone-200mg day1->15 400mg days 15->28. Also DHEA 50MG daily.
My period is over a week late . Do I continue taking 400mg of progesterone until period starts ? 100%Not pregnant -delay is most likely due to a lot of antibiotics and hospital stay. But do I just continue the 400mg till it starts ? Concerned about over medicating.
There is a type of birth control that is "progesterone only". These often cause patients to NEVER have a period, unless they stop the drug (skip a depo-proverb shot, etc.). It appears the high dose of progesterone is inhibiting you from having a withdrawal bleed (a period starts 1-3 days after progesterone levels drop).
You should call the office of the doctor who prescribed these hormones and ask, "Should I stop the progesterone so I could have a withdrawal bleed?". Dose adjustments appear to be necessary, and it is best that someone who has a doctor-patient relationship with you helps you figure out a better regimen.
