This makes no sense. You won’t ovulate on progesterone.

Have you considered seeing a reproductive endocrinologist?

Yeah I would think that would be more like the mini-pill no? (the birth control pill for breastfeeding mothers?). I’ve heard of taking progesterone for 5 days to induce a withdrawl bleed, but not for 2 months. I’d double check with her.

I would 100% get a second opinion.  Especially since that much progesterone sounds like a one way ticket to mood swing central.  Might be unnecessary.

Maybe I’m a little cynical but I once had a gyn suggest “exploratory surgery” for a cyst that ended up going away on its own.

I have taken progesterone but only for 10 days to induce a period, or after ovulation to help get pregnant. I’ve never heard of taking it for two months straight. You might get breakthrough bleeding at some point. Would definitely get a second opinion because this doesn’t make sense.
