Sure: You can take Provera (medroxyprogesterone) tablets 10 mg daily for 10 days from Day 16 to Day 25 of your cycle, or you can take Provera (medroxyprogesterone) 20mg daily day 21 to Day 25 of your cycle. You can also just get a Progesterone injection at the doctor's office. You can also use natural Progesterone in 100mg or 200mg doses just like Provera (medroxyprogesterone). You can also use suppositories or a vaginal gel or cream.
