Question regarding progestorone supplement

amshealth; posted:
I have been diagnosed with PCOS. My doctor said I should loose weight as it helps regulate periods in women with PCOS. She suggested me to start a exercise program and see if I can get my periods naturally by waiting 5 days days after the first day of my expected period. If I dont get a period then I should take the progestorne course. I have been exercising and so far lost 4 lbs of weight. But I have been seeing slight reddish brown discharge every day after the induced period ended.Is it because of the waiting or is it beacuse of exercise(I have been working out for 40 mins daily).

Take the Poll

IS it OK to wait till the first day of my expected period before taking progestorone supplement?

Hiya and welcome,

Please call your doctors office and ask to be sure. He/she knows your health and health history and is best to ask about this.

Good luck and congrats on the weight loss already! Great work!
