Several reasons: The bleeding could be due to several different possibilities. It could be your menses coming on, a pregnancy loss, implantation bleeding or even from local irritation from vaginal progesterone supplements. You should follow your clinic's instructions for your medications and blood work, and not be afraid to call them if you have questions or concerns.
