Yes it can. Progesterone is released from your body prior to your period.

A withdrawal bleed from progesterone takes anywhere from 3 to 21 days after stopping progesterone. Usually however, most women find they begin a period in 7 to 10 days. I was taking progesterone suppositories for after IVF. I didn't spot or bleed at all while on the progesterone. I was even 5 days late for my period so assumed this was good news. However, I tested negative after the 2ww (Monday) and got my period 3 days later (Thursday). I think this is fairly standard and my doctor said it would show up within a week.

This is normal. Progesterone will prevent your period from occurring.

No. Continue to take progesterone for the entire 14 days.

No. During pregnancy, the primary hormone produced by your body is progesterone. In order to have a period, you need a lackof progesterone.

The Clomid really messes up your period and causes all sorts of things to happen. I took it for awhile and it made me feel strange plus I felt bloated. I would call your doctor if you are having problems. By-the-way did you know the Clomid stays in your system after you quit taking it? It is one reason I quit.

I guess everybody is different... I was taking progesterone pills and after stopping, my period came down about 3 days after.... Hope this helps

You can delay your menstrual phase by taking Norethisterone.Norethisterone is a progesterone pill so it prevents the progesterone drop that would normally trigger menstruation, you get these pills from your doctor and take them three times a day until you want your period to start. It's not a good idea to use hormonal birth control for this reason as it suppresses your entire menstrual cycle so has a major impact on your body including side-effects, it's over-kill to go onto hormonal birth control to delay your period.

How long it takes to start bleeding (whether menstruation or a withdrawal bleed) after you stop taking progesterone depends on your body and the doses involved. Typically with a sudden drop in progesterone you'd see a bleed starting within 24 hours, but not always.

Anytime you are taking clomid your progesterone should be tested at 7 days past ovulation. For a definite sign you are ovulating it should be over 15.

No. Pregnancy tests detect the hormone hcg which your body produces when you are pregnant. Progesterone would not be picked up on a pregnancy test. If your test came back positive, you are pregnant. See a doctor to confirm.

If you want to delay your period you can use a medication called Northisterone, which you can get from your doctor, this is a progesterone pill so overrides the progesterone drop that would normally trigger menstruation. You start taking it three times per day from three days before your period is due, and continue until you want your period to start. Hormonal birth control can also be used to stop your period, long-term this is known as menstrual suppression, however using birth control in this way can increase risks and we don't yet know the full long-term risks of menstrual suppression.
