Progesterone - what are your experiences?

Background: I'm 28 years old, and have never been on any kind of birth control (besides using condoms) or hormones before. Since September, my period has been weird. It would be light with some clots here and there, but it would last for like 20 days, go away for 1-3 weeks, then come back. I thought it was stress for a while (been through a lot this past year), but I finally got in to see my doctor today. She did a pap smear (the first one I've had since my first one 3 years ago), and prescribed me a pill for a yeast infection (my first, that I know of). I was feeling very itchy, and stingy down there a few weeks back, but I figured, I'd wait for my appointment, and if it was still bothering me, I'd bring it up then. It hasn't bothered me in a few days, so I didn't think anything of it, until the doctor mentioned it. I just thought it was due to rough sex (I had a one night stand about 3 weeks ago, just before the symptoms started - before that, I hadn't had sex in over a year and a half). As far as the weird period goes, she said I likely had a build up of excess lining (or something to that effect) that was clogging things up and making my flow light and long (like a clogged, drippy faucet). She prescribed me a 10 day course of Progesterone to help clean out the plumbing, so to speak. I was just curious, has anyone on here had a similar experience? Has anyone taken Progesterone? What was your experience like? Did the pills help? Did you have any weird side effects? I'm just curious what to expect. Thanks in advance! ^_^
