Not clear question: Don't know what "regestrone" or "HSG" is. Do you mean progesterone? Do you mean HCG? Whatever, you need to take Metformin on regular basis. It will not block your periods. In fact, it may help normalize your cycle. Cycling progesterone, however, will help. You may also be hypothyroid. See Dr. Broda Barnes' book, Hypothyroidism, the Unsuspected Illness. Don't rely on blood tests.

Rev estrone O presume is progesteronn e.it is used D to create withdrawal bleeding by providing the progesterone which is lacking in PCOS .It allows the the uterus to shed the endometium.This jac nothing to do with tubal blockageThus even if the tubes are blocked,you will still have withdrawal bleeding with register one.I hope that helps
