Hello Suguna...
For hormone replacement therapy: 200 mg micronized progesterone (Prometrium) per day is typically taken for 12 days of a 25-day cycle... but you have missed that.. hence, its better to cosult your doctor then start... It merely depends on for which problem it is prescribed lyk ovulatory dysfunction or luteal phase defect etc...

Okay Suguna...
Progesterone is one of these key hormones. After ovulation progesterone production is triggered by Luteinizing Hormone (LH) which stimulates the corpus luteum (the remnant egg sac) in the ovary to produce progesterone. 
so, it helps if you continue now also...

Ammu

ok. thank u. will i be able to get pregnant since i took on my ovulation day?

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Suguna it depends on many other factors not only progesterone...
so have patience... and try to meet your doctor once...

Ammu

Progesterone is a pregnancy supporting hormone and helps prepare your uterus for the baby, so continue trying. Don't worry...
