5 Weeks HCG Slowly Rising Progesterone Very Low

Brita - October 11

I am 5 weeks - 3 days. I had light scant staining at 4 weeks 6 days. Had blood work which showed low Proges (6.2) and HCG of 975. Repeat blood 3 days later showed reduction of proges to 4 but HCG jumped to 1500 (not quite doubled). My doctor feels that I am going to miscarry. Any suggestions? This is my first, I am 35 and I have poly cystic ovaries.

its hard to say, brita. your progesterone is quite low. are you on any progesterone supplements? i have polycystic ovaries too and i dont produce progesterone as a result. my dr put me on progesterrone suppositories before i even found out i was pregnant and my levels stayed above 30. i still miscarried just a week ago, but it was due to something being wrong with the baby, not my hormones. ask your dr about supplements, if your only problem is low progesterone, it may help. best of luck.

thanks for your suppport. This is my first time and if they determine it is low prog due to poly cystic ovaries...he indicates that next time, he will put me on supps after I ovulate. Good luck to you.
