Hi,

In the current scenario, you should indeed be concerned about the abnormal bleeding pattern. This is more likely to be a breakthrough bleed. However, if you are trying to conceive and the Progesterone has been prescribed as part of hormone supplementation, you should also check for the possibility of ovulation bleeding. Please inform your health care provider if the bleeding does not subside in a couple of days.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shanti Vennam,
