Can Progesterone Levels decrease?
Hi Ladies! I am currently 4 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I had my progesterone levels checked a week before I found out I was pregnant, and the day after I found out I was pregnant. They said my levels were good and that they didn't need to test it again.

I had an aunt who kept miscarrying because of low progesterone levels so I am nervous about this. If they said my progesterone levels were good, can they drop or should they stay high if they were originally.

Re: Can Progesterone Levels decrease?
I'm not sure on that as usually what I see is that women usually have low levels to start out with and family history can be different within pregnancies and if your still worried about it after a couple weeks re ask your doctor to check your levels and share your fears with him/her.

Also and congrats on the pregnancy

I had my progesterone levels checked last Monday and again last Thursday and it dropped from 9 to 8. They put me on progesterone suppositories, but still really worried. I'm 6 wks 2 days. I had my first ultrasound on Friday and there was a heartbeat!

My 1st pregnancy at 3 wks they were 31 and now at 5 wks they were 18, I haven't been retested yet but my first one dropped from 31 to 3 in 2 days.. They have me on supossitories this time, hoping it is helping, I'm 7 wks today according to the internet. Kinda freaked out at the moment cause my boobs aren't quite as sore today. :/ trying to stay cool though and not stress.

Re: Can Progesterone Levels decrease?
I am 5w 2d and I went to the dr 2 days ago because I had some spotting. This is my 2nd pregnancy, but the first ended very early 2 months ago, so I was extra worried. I had my progesterone checked and it was 100 ng/ml and they said that was low. They put me on progesterone pills and said if it doesn't double in 2-3 days, then I'll have a mc. I'm going to another dr on Monday for a second opinion. Your progesterone levels this early should be lower right? I'm just confused and scared; does anyone have information on what the levels should be?
