It is obvious that for n and p fixed you have a bound. You do not need to prove it. It is not easy to know it before testing it. For some values (n <= 7 )the cycle is very short.

I was just asking a question. I did not claim that it exist an infinite sequence. It is obvious that the number of prime in sequence depends on the value of n.
