+ OPK should I take 200mg or wait 2 days to take progesterone? Will progesterone hurt/stop ovulation if taken the first day of +opk or can it help.

Progesterone: 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.
