Dear Tracy: You're doing the right thing but there are a few possibilities for what is going on: 1- the lining may not have been all that thick and this may account for the minimal bleeding. Rarely, very high levels of androgens can also account for minimal bleeding after a progesterone (Prometrium) challange. 2- Even women with PCOS may ovulate occasionally, and sometimes this happens during or shortly after a course of progesterone. I would suggest you recheck a progesterone level- if it is high then you ovulated. I would also check a blood pregnancy test again (beta HCG)- if you ovulated there is always the possibility of pregnancy! Speak to your doctor and good luck!

: I finished my Prometrium 200mg on June 12 (was on this from June 1-12 to start a period) All I have done is have a little spotting on the paper after unrination. No blood has really even made it to a pad. Am I likely to even start a period? My pelvic area kind of "feels ready to start" like things inside are trying to get the gears moving. However, they have not as of yet. My doc did an ultrasound May 17 and said that the lining of my uterus is thicker than it should be and I have some cysts. Was this Prometrium just a waste of time? Because I sure have not had my period.
: HELP! should I be doing something different???
: Thank you for answering my questions!!!
