Brief Answer: You need to undergo progesterone challenge test Detailed Answer: Hi, I find that you may have progesterone deficiency. This is common and treatable. You need to undergo progesterone challenge test (PCT) before confirming it and treating. It is improper to supplement with progesterone without detailed history and testing. So as I said in my previous reply please see a local Gynecologist who can follow up with you after your periods are regularised and decide when to start it and stop it. Hope this is clear.
