I’ve only taken progesterone to jump start a period, not to stop one. But I do notice that it is usually extremely heavy when I do use the progesterone. I take 10mg for 10 days and then usually start 3-4 days after my last pill.

I’ve been on a PoP for about 4 weeks, and no breakthrough bleeding, but U had this bloating issue last yr that seem to have come back.  I don’t know if its related to the pill or not, but gaining 5 lbs in water weight and not being able to get rid of it for about 3 weeks is not fun nor is it comfortable.

Breakthrough bleeding on PoP’s is supposed to be normal.  my 2nd period on it is due this weekend, I will let you know how it goes.

I used natural progesterone to help bring my body back into hormonal balance before.  I ended up reading about using it to get pregnant so I gave it to one of my friends who was trying to get pregnant for going on at least 3 years, if not more. She got pregnant that next month.  NO JOKE.  

As I understand it, if you are trying to conceive, you start taking it AFTER you have ovulated for about 2 weeks. If you don’t end up pregnant, stop, you will get your period.  There are many sites that explain how to do it – google.

I have taken prescribed progesterone to jumpstart my period (when it was way late).  It did cause a heavy period.  I wouldn’t do that again.  I’d stick with natural progesterone any day.

A lot of birth control pills are progesterone based.  It will stop ovulation if taken like that.

I hope you feel better soon!
