Hi all ! I’m anywhere from 6 to 6.5-7 weeks( the joys of having PCOS, non-existent periods and trying to date a pregnancy!)
My hcg levels keep doubling beautifully, even in the beginning, they doubled fasted than every 48 hrs and I’m at 22,000 hug level as of Thursday, when I last had them checked, so from what I read, this looks like a good number.
I had them recheck my progesterone which they said they normally don’t do, but because of the PCOS, progesterone levels can be lower and can cause miscarriage if too low, so prefer to just be a little cautious, especially as my sister had a miscarriage 2 months ago, and her levels of progesterone were low, and that could have been one of the causes.
Well, in 4 days, my progesterone levels went from 34 to 27!!!(edited to add: I’m in Canada so this is in nmol/L, so when converted to ng\L, which is the standard unit of measurement for progesterone in the US and most of the articles I read, my level is only at an 8….!!
Do I need to get on progesterone supplements ASAP?? Is this a bad sign? This is my first pregnancy so this is all new to me. Thank you so much!

stefano101: What do your doctors say? I was really nervous about my numbers as well, but my doctor stressed that they do fluctuate regularly. I know my RE said they wanted to have a 10 (in American units) , so I would make sure you talk to yours and make sure you are confident in their abilities. I hope all works out!!

I ended up n a week’s progesterone supplement because of red bleeding at 5 weeks and she’s now a healthy 9-month old! It’s quite common, ask your doctor if you need supplementing 🙂

I had low progesterone with this pregnancy- had 2 mc’s previously, and my progesterone was never tested with those. I started the supplements and the spotting I was having stopped pretty much immediately. I would push to get oN a supplement. good luck!
