How long after you stop taking progesterone suppositories will your period start?

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.

If you have been taking pills for past 10 months when will i be pregnant if i stop it now?

In about 3-6 months normally the menstrual cycles regularise on stopping the pill. (it depends if it was a Progesterone only or Estrogen & Progesterone Pill) The menstrual cycles can return to normal maybe sooner, there have been cases documented of pregnancy in the first cycle itself. If you are too worried Visit your Doctor. He will be able to help you.

How do you delay a menstrual period?

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 can you prevent your period from coming?

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.
