hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for the query.

usually doctors will prescribe progesterones in the second half of menstrual cycle when there is expected pregnancy with the opinion that, progesterone will help in implantation and maintaining of pregnancy,
according to FDA category deviry which contains medroxyprogesterone is category X drug means there is possibility of fetal defects according to animal studies whereas that is not proved in many human studies,
anyhow as your doctor prescribed only for 2 weeks you can continue and in case of positivity of pregnancy you follow with regular antenatal checkups and ultrasound examinations.
you may have mild side effects like nausea, vomitings, bloating sensation of abdomen, breast tenderness etc, but usually they will subside without need of medication.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.

hi,

according to some studies chance of miscarriage is more in patients with PCOD, and hyperandrogenism(high serum testosterone) is one of the feature of PCOD, that is also said to be one of the contributing factor in infertility and miscarriage due to PCOD,
so as a preventive measure your doctor might have kept you on progesterone tablets, as I told the risk with tablets is not proved so you can complete the course, after that depending on your pregnancy positivity the treatment can be given.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
