How long after stopping progesterone tablets was it until your period arrive?

Hello All,

I'm after some advice from anyone who has used either progesterone tablets or suppositories.

I have been on Clomid 50mgs this cycle and after my day 21 progesterone blood test was deemed to be 'a little on the low side',(my doctor says that I definitely ovulated but that my progesterone level was a little lower than they liked for a medicated cycle), I was given progesterone suppositories (Utrogest 100mgs) to boost my levels.

I took my last lot of suppositories last night and I am expecting my period to arrive either today or tomorrow based on when I ovulated. However, I know that progesterone can lengthen your luteal phase so I am unsure when I should expect my period, if it is going to arrive at all.

I'm wondering whether anyone who has been in the same situation as me, or anyone who has taken progesterone to induce a period, could share their experience of how many days after stopping the tablets their period showed up?

Thanks in advance.

I took oral progesterone - I think 100mg and was told to expect a period in 2-5 days after finishing. Took 8 days the first time and 5 days the other 3.

After 2 goes with it and Clomid still hadn't got a cycle to last more than 2 months, but clearly ovulated at least once 3 months later and ended up with ds. Now I've managed to produce a period twice myself after two lots of prog, so hopeful of another pregnancy at some point...
