Brief Answer:
Stop progesterone

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

Red substance coming out i your regular periods bleeding. Please stop using progesterone vaginal gel and injections.

Progesterone supplements have no role now as you got your periods.

Please wait for periods to complete and go for another IUI cycle as you have got you periods.

Let me know if you need anymore help.
