Progesterone delay an inevitable miscarriage?

If a woman was pregnant, and on progesterone (200mg 2x/day - compounded progesterone from 4dpo) and the pregnancy was not viable, would the progesterone delay the inevitable miscarriage?

If, by some chance, the home pregnancy test was a false positive, and a woman didn't go in for testing to confirm a pregnancy, would the progesterone prevent her period from ever coming till she actually stopped the progesterone?

Yes, she should go into the dr, I have been encouraging her to do so, but she is afraid after so many losses to find another non-viable pregnancy. At this point she is just over 9 weeks pregnant, with no spotting or cramping, yet still worrying anyhow and having irrational fears.

Progesterone can delay onset of a menstrual flow, whether there is a failed pregnancy, or no pregnancy, at all. It is highly unlikely that a home pregnancy test will produce a false positive. It is time for an ultrasound.
