Using progesterone is fine after an ablation, and it doesn't cause bleeding. Yes, progesterone is needed if you are taking estrogen to balance the estrogen and keep your uterus healthy.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
