After a MC in April at 8 weeks and a chemical pregnancy last month, my midwife prescribed me progesterone. I’m supposed to take a 100 mg once daily starting at 2-3 DPO. Today I started bleeding even though I still took my progesterone pill this morning. I was under the impression I needed to stop the progesterone for my period to start. I was just wondering if any other ladies have experienced this. Does this mean the dosage isn’t high enough, or does it sometimes happen and it’s nothing to be concerned about?

I think it’s sligtly different for everyone. Some people find that progesterone holds off bleeding, some people bleed while on it anyway.
If you’re worried, check with your midwife!

I’m under the impression that you begin taking progesterone after O is confirmed and stop when you notice that has AF arrived. A lot of people continue taking progesterone through the first tri. I’m so sorry to hear about AF. 🙁 hugs, girl.
