Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
Proluton-Depot is a hydroxyprogesterone hexanoate preparation, used for early pregnancy progesterone deficiency problems, there are chances of you being pregnant, usually regular pregnancy tests becomes positive after 1 or 2 weeks of missing periods, repeat your pregnancy test again, you can get your USG abdomen & pelvis scan done to confirm, meet obstetrician for further management..
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....

The average success rate of IUI could be between 10-20% in one cycle. In your case, it could be a delayed period caused by the intervention and progesterone injection showing up as spotting. Yet, the possibility of conception could be ruled out only with a sonogram after 4-5 weeks of IUI. The fingers are crossed and we can only wait. Let us hope for the best.
