I don't want to freak anyone out so I won't divulge too much info, but progesterone is VERY important in sustaining a pregnancy.

With my first pg I was on clomid and had nice, high levels so no supps were necessary.
My 2nd pg (m/c) I was not on clomid but still had good levels so was not prescribed anything. I later went on to m/c and my levels had dropped to 17 from 49. Not sure if it's b/c the baby died or if the baby died b/c the level dropped.
My third pg (m/c) I was on clomid and had good levels but had a blighted ovum.
This time around I was not on clomid but started taking 200mg right away and my levels went from 25 unmedicated to 67 medicated.

All that to say, it's hard to go by one number without anything to compare it to. I would definitely ask your doctor to do a repeat and discuss the supps. As my OB told me, it doesn't hurt to take progesterone, so why not do it for your own peace of mind.

BTW, I am now 5w,2d. I won't get a ticker until after the horrid first u/s.
