Hi,
Thanks for the query.

After completing the progesterone tablets usually withdrawal bleeding will occur within one week.
As you didn't get bleeding even after 8 days of completing the tablets the possibilities are:
-Estrogen and progesterone deficiency.
-Pregnancy.
So you once go for either blood test or urine test for pregnancy to rule out that possibility.
If test comes negative, you may need estrogen and progesterone supplementation to get withdrawal bleeding.
After doing pregnancy test you can consult your gynecologist, discuss the possibility of hormonal imbalance and take tablets accordingly.

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.
Take care.

Hi,

According to studies meprate which contains medroxyprogesterone can cause fetal abnormalities. But this may not be true in every case. So if you found to be pregnant, decide whether to continue or terminate after proper check up by your doctor.
