How long does it take a progesterone injection to work?

by Sandra

I was late for my period for two and a half months and my doctor gave me 4 progesterone injections two for each day. However, I had to have 2 penicilllin injections the day after the progesterone injections.

It's been eight days since my first progesterone injection and my period hasn't started yet. I am extremely worried about my condition please tell me how long it is natural for the injections to work.

How long does it take a progesterone injection to work?

Hi Sandra I'm not sure what progesterone injection he gave, as it could have been a synthetic progestin. This is commonly given, or the pills. There is something upsetting your ovaries, this is often caused by oxidative stress. Behind this is often a lack of vitamin D, please have a test done. For more info please see the Vitamin D council website. As I don't know your age, your stress levels, or the food you eat, it's difficult for me to give further advice. I take it he checked for PCOS? Please have a look through this page and see if there are any other symptoms you might have. Progesterone can help regulate a cycle, but it can't be used as a once off. For more info please see our page on How to use progesterone cream. Take care Wray
