I have 10 days worth of progesterone left. My doctor told me to take the rest of those and then just stop taking them, has anybody ever done this and what are the side effects of stopping progesterone

Hi Anon,
Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community

After taking progesterone, you could experience withdrawal or menstrual like bleeding, constipation or increased bowel activity.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
