Taking progesterone to restart cycle but still having symptoms

Quick intro, Mom, 35, of 2 boys (6 & 4) and TTC for baby #3.

I went into my doctor on Monday because I was a week and half late on my period. Did a urine test at the office that came back negative. He prescribed progesterone to get my cycle restarted. Now on day 4 of RX and still having symptoms. Cramping, dull pressure, nausea, fatigue. If my period does not start on Monday, he said to call back for an ultrasound. I am considering buying more tests or calling the office since I am not feeling any better and no period yet.

Curious if you all think I should wait it out till Monday? Buy more tests? Call the office?

Looking for suggestions and support. Thank you everyone.

I’d buy more tests if only just for peace of mind until you can get into the doctor. At this point you should be seeing a clear positive on a test. Praying you get some definitive answers one way or the other.

I agree with what she said. I don't understand why the doctor would prescribe progesterone. You stop taking the Rx and your period should start. Keep takimg the Rx and it will only delay your period. I'm taking progesterone cream to keep the pregnancy stable. There's no harm in getting tests and you will have peace of mind.

Thanks ladies. The RX is definitely not making me feel any better. I remember taking that while I was pregnant.

everything I've read says that progesterone to trigger a period is done by taking them for 5 to 10 days and then stopping. the flux of hormones is what triggers the cycle to start
