Brief Answer:
No date to recommend Progesterone for ectopics

Detailed Answer:
Good day,
There are no published data on the use of progesterone to control ectopic beats.
Many people get ectopics and if your holter test and echo was okay, not to worry.
Avoiding Coffee and smoking as well minimizing Cola drinks can reduce the ectopics.
