Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for letting us know your health concern.

After going through your query, I presume that you are trying to conceive. Naturogest is micronized progesterone and is prescribed to overcome the hormone deficiency, if any.

After completing the course, you should see a period due to withdrawal effect 3-7 days later.

Your doctor perhaps would ask you to take medication to induce ovulation from day 2 after the period.

If you do not see the period, the possible causes are- an inadequate dose, pregnancy or an additional hormone deficiency. Further evaluation is needed to plan further management.

Please maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow your doctor's instructions.

Hope I have clarified your query. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help.

regards,
Shanti.V.
