Does progesterone stop your period?

It depends

Prometrium
If you have had abnormally prolonged bleeding, progesterone may stop the bleeding in many cases. Prolonged progesterone treatment (like with the Mirena IUD) may prevent periods. However, if you do not ovulate on your own and miss a period for several months, progesterone can start your period. It is best to review your particular situation with your doctor.

Dr. Neeoo W. Chin answered:

Is progesterone a prenatal vitamin?

No

Progesterone
Progesterone is usually produced by the ovaries after ovulation to help an embryo implant onto the uterine lining, and also to maintain the pregnancy once the embryo has implanted. After the middle of the first trimester, the placenta starts to take over the progesterone production. Prenatal vitamins do not contain progesterone.

How do I recognised low progesterone?

Progesterone

Open-uri20131125-1276-78y8dc
In a reproductive age woman low luteal progesterone usually means she did not ovulate. In ovulatory cycles if progesterone is low, it is usually called a luteal-phase defect, although experts disagree about how important it is. Purely theoretically, no progesterone at all would mean death because your body couldn't make cortisol.
