Yes: It is not uncommon to have bleeding even while on supplemental Progesterone and still be pregnant. Cramping is sometimes thought to be of uterine origin, but in fact is originating from the ovaries as they begin to regain their normal size after hyperstimulation with gonadotropins or injectable medications.
