Before taking progesterone you must get an ultrasound scan and thyroid profile done.
Polycystic ovaries and hypothyroidism can cause delayed periods.
It is better to take progesterone in the form of nor-ethisterone for withdrawal bleeding and for a shorter duration under your doctor's prescription.
Best wishes
