    Taking progestrone/bleeding heavy
    An_248973 posted:
    I started taking progestrone Oct. I was put on progestrone to regulate my cycles/ovulation because my MD says I don't ovulate with how freq I bled before. I am 35yrs old.....I took it Oct 1-10 and started my cycle Oct 14. then, started spotting again on Oct 28. I then took progestrone again Nov 1-10. I am still bleeding since Oct 28. Last week was very heavy and lots of clotting. When taking progestrone, do you start your cycle after day 10 or during taking the progestrone? I'm confused how it's suppose to work and not getting a lot of answers from my MD. MD scheduled an US for this week. Not sure this is the answer. Any advice?
