Short cycle after Prometrium?

Hello ladies,
Back again with more questions!
My RE had me try prometrium 2 cycles ago due to spotting in my luteal phase. This was a natural cycle. I was told to take 200mg prometrium vaginally twice per day (turns out this was a mistake though - was only meant to do 200mg at night but the nurse that counselled me was wrong :oops: - anyways).
They think I ovulated sometime around day 13 and I started Prometrium Day 14. My HCG blood test was negative at 14dpo and I stopped the Prometrium that night. I was definitely having AF symptoms (cramping, low back pain) around that time of the test. It took 4 days for AF to come.
Now this cycle seems like it's going to be short. I didn't use prometrium this month because we couldn't BD during my fertile window due to travel. I had a positive OPK on day 9 and now I am CD 23 and it looks as though AF will be coming in the next 24-48 hours. I've had shorter cycles before so it's not totally abnormal....
I'm wondering if anyone noticed that prometrium had an effect on their subsequent cycles?
Thanks ladies

From what I know progesterone shouldn't have this effect on ur cycle but who knows how your body reacts.
