Thanks for posting your query.
It is better to go through all primary test for subfertility like ultrasound scan, hysterosalpingography for tubal patency, Serum FSH, Prolactin , random blood sugar & husband semen analysis before starting any medication.
I am glad to know that your ultrasound scan is normal but still first get investigated for remaining investigations & after getting reports it will be decided whether you are in really need of progesterone tablets or not.
Secondly estrogen +progesterone tablets are taken to regularize periods & not for subfertility.
For subfertility only progesterone is taken if needed.
I will be available for your further queries.
