Progesterone only Pill


#1

Once stopping the Progesterone only pill, how long should it take for my period to come back?

Hello,

They should come back very quickly. The hormone will be out of your body within a couple of days.

Many thanks

I stopped the progesterone only pill nearly a month ago and have had no bleeding, but I have done a pregnancy’s test to check and I am not pregnant

Thanks, if you have done a pregnancy test that is very reassuring. It can sometimes take several months for their menstrual cycle to re-establish itself.

Many thanks

Thanks, so how long do I leave it until I need to see the doctor?

Hello @rayray

It is very difficult to give advice on this without knowing more about your situation. On one hand it is not unusual for it to be a little while before their periods return to normal. On the other hand your doctor will want to check for other things that might stop your periods that could have happened while you were on the pill and been put down to being on the pill.

Sorry not to be more helpful on this one.

Many thanks

Paula
