No menses post ET: I'm not sure why you stopped prog two weeks post ET. I recommend pts continue till neg preg test. Firstly I recommend a blood preg test + prog, and if + with prog >20 mg/ml continue prog another week then stop. If neg stop prog. If you are not preg you probably haven't had a period due to hormonal values, Eventually hormones will fall and you'll get a period.
