Progesterone levels rise throughout pregnancy but normally range between 12 and 20 nanograms per milliliter through the first five to six weeks of pregnancy.
there is still a chance you could have a viable pregnancy.
more time is needed to see if your HCG levels continue to go up
when is your next follow up with your gyn doctor?
I'm sure you are worried.
the blood test are to look for your bHCG to make sure they continue to go up
and also to check your progesterone levels, hopefully they come up.
ultrasound will help as well.
best of luck to you
do you have other questions?
it should start to work right away.
but if the embryo didn't implant properly in the uterus, if the progesterone levels are low, the uterus may not be ready to accept the embryo.
