Hi Kate,

I hope I can help you a bit...

I used progesterone cream this time, the cycle I got pg. I remember each dose had 20mg progesterone in it. Like you say I started using it at 3dpo (after O was confirmed). I would use it either until AF arrives (yes you would still get your period even with a low dose of extra progesterone) or, and hopefully this will be the case for you, a good few weeks into your pregnancy!

There is no "limit" on how long you can use prog cream, although at around 12 weeks the pregnancy is managed by the placenta rather than hormones alone so that would be a good time to stop.

I would definitely advise using it for a few weeks after your BFP as not only might it help to keep your pgcy going, but also because it gives you peace of mind.

Yes, as Anna mentioned, you start it once O is confirmed.
