Progesterone supplementation in the second half of your cycle are not harmful. They do not increase cancer or any other problems for you. There is possibility that they will lengthen your cycle even if you do not conceive so that your cycle may be irregular or longer. This is why it is always better to have medications monitored by a physician who prescribes them.
