Hi patrizia~
I do know that being on pregeterone can delay your peiod, by several days.... but typically you should get it shortly after that. 2 weeks does seem like a long time, especially if you were on pills or suppositories. I know thatthe injections can delay it for a little longer...but again, 2 weeks I would thin it would have shown up by now. Did you call your RE? I think I would call your doc, and talk to him/her...or your team nurse, just for peace of mind. Could you be pregnant?? Again, I would advise calling your doctor. Also, how long were you on progesterone?? If you were on for a long time, your levels could be high, and that would also delay period. Good luck to you~

Hi Patrizia, I just went thru the same thing and my doc said you should get your af by 2 weeks max...i went for an u/s and my lining is not even thick which usually happens if the af does not arrive and so she is also checking my fsh. When I first had it checked it was 11 which is a bit high but not outrageous, I still had a chance but now she thinks my ovarian reserve is depleted and the fsh has gone even higher. Anyway, I won't find out until Monday. Of course, I am 43 and this is the first time we have tried for a baby...have you had any luck yet at all? Sam

Hi Patrizia, I went to the doc today, it has been 3 weeks since I finished the Provera and still no af. Doc did an fsh and u/s last week and she says I have a small cyst which is why I did not get af. She has now put me on birth control pill to bring af on and then I will take clomid 100mg for days 3-7. I hope that you also find a solution, did your doc mention a cyst at all? Mine says it is secreting estogen which causes a problem for af...Sam
