Brief Answer: Combined hormonal pills Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. The possible causes for delay in withdrawal bleeding in your case are : - Sometimes progesterone pills take longer time to act. - Insufficient dosage of progesterone tablets. -Persistence of poly cystic ovaries leading to hormonal imbalance. - Stress and strain due to surgery affecting central hormones. So, as there is no effect after 12 days of completion of progesterone tablets, better to consult your gynecologist once again. Possibly combined hormonal pills may help in your case to induce withdrawal bleeding. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.

Brief Answer: Wait for 3 more days Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. As previously you used to get withdrawal bleeding after 12 to 14 days of intake of tablets, better to wait for 3 to 4 days. Possibly by that time you will get withdrawal bleeding. Usually ovarian drilling acts effectively in treating PCOD. So possibly, your cycles may get regularized soon. Once you get regular ovulatory cycles, you can plan for pregnancy. Take care.
