Won't help ovulation: Progesterone can be used to make you have 'withdrawal bleeding' so that you shed the lining of your uterus, to prevent a thick lining or pre-cancerous changes in the lining. Progesterone won't help you to ovulate (release an egg) - if you're trying to conceive with irregular periods or no periods, see a fertility specialist for help.
