Preg. Hormones (Not HCG)

Dr. Jacobs:

I have a history of recurrent miscarriage am now 7 weeks pregnant. My hcg numbers seem to be doubling at a good rate going from 89 to more than 52,000 in just over 2 weeks. But, my progesterone and estradial levels seem low in comparison to others. The blood results have been
Prog. Est.
10/25 24.2 233
10/29 27.7 233
11/1 46.2 308
11/5 53 325
11/12 45.4 508

I am on progesterone suppositories and pills and am concerned as to why the progesterone level went down and if it is high enough. What role does the estradial play and what are the appropriate ranges? Also, when does the hcg doubling rate begin to slow down? This is usually around the time that I miscarry and I'm a bit nervous.

Thank you for your time,
Julie

As long as progesterone is at least 20 ng/ml, it is OK. After abot 8 weeks of pregnancy hCG leels do not rise as rapidly. For more information about recurrent pregnancy loss, I invite you to see our web page at <www.texasfertility.com>.
Good luck.
