Obstetrics and Gynecology 30 years experience
Progesterone: Cyclogest is a progesterone, so it would increase Progesterone levels. Progesterone supplementation is sometimes indicated to support a pregnancy. When used in pregnancy, it is generally continued until about 11 to 15 weeks of pregnancy - by that time the placenta will have taken over Progesterone production to maintain the pregnancy.

Women are more cautious and more apt to stop something before it becomes habitual (other than shoes, of course).
