Given progesterone, for chemical d and c. Did ultrasound, thick lining. Have heavy periods, clots. What to do?

I have been prescribed progesterone tablets to take for a "chemical d & C" I recently had two ultrasounds that i was told were normal except for some thickening of my lining. I am 49 years old and for approximately the last two years I have been having extremely heavy periods about every 2-3 weeks with a lot of clotting. Is this wise for me to do and what can I expect for side effects? Please help me

Thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic. At this age if the endometrial thickness/ lining is more than 15mm, its recommended to get a endometrial biopsy for histopathology, depending on the report its ideal to give progesterone either continuous/ intermittent.
