I’m also five weeks and I’m on oral progesterone. My levels also went from 28 to 18 between the first and second beta, so they put me on prometrium. It stayed at 18 for the third beta. I don’t think 17 is a low number for 5 weeks – I think my RE said that between 15-20 is ideal. Some doctors aren’t sure if progesterone supplementation actually does anything or not but it can’t hurt. Fingers crossed for us both!

I’m taking prometrium vaginally that I started at 6 weeks. Had to take it last pregnancy too and had a healthy baby after 2 losses without. Maybe ask about switching the method!
