May be normal: The drop in a Progesterone level is what triggers uterus to bleed. A short course of Progesterone often is used to restart a stalled cycle. It may take a few weeks to see your normal cycle re-establish. If not, return to your doctor to discuss possible causes and treatments.

Time to follow up: Prometrium (micronized progesterone) is a type of Progesterone which can be used to trigger a period. Most will have a period after stopping the prometrium (micronized progesterone). This is only a temporary fix. You will need a longer term plan through for cycle regulation. Time to schedule a follow up and discuss the long term options which will depend on your pregnancy plans vs your need for contraception.
