what you say is correct, however

Response to Really?

 
Lets say on a natural cycle with no support, you progesterone level is a 12, around 11dpo it starts to drop, then you might start spotting and then get a bull blown AF. Then on a cycle with support its at a 20. So the support is giving you an 8 point increase. Well, around 11dpo, you bodies natural production of progesterone is still dropping, and that dropping is what's causing the spotting. Even though your progesterone level lmight still be over 12, it's still "dropping" somewhat.

Some women still get full blown AF even while on progesterone support.

Does that make sense?
