Does low progesterone affect hcg levels?

Postby Mommaofboys » Thu Mar 19, 2009 1:32 pm

Does any body know if having incredibly low progesterone levels would cause hcg to rise slower than normal?

After I got a BFP, I immediately called the Dr. because I knew something was up with BBT chart being so low. It was confirmed my progesterone level was low (5.1) and was started on Prometrium; 200mg, 1x daily (orally).

My beta hcg levels sometimes double over 2 days, sometimes not. They are always increasing and haven't ever dropped, but was curious if low progesterone could be causing this, or if it is a sign of something else.

Yes, we typically see on the site that women with low progesterone seem to have slowly rising numbers.
To read my own Misdiagnosed Miscarriage stories:
my blighted ovum scare
Told I was miscarrying at 12 weeks

Blogging on Misdiagnosed Miscarriages
If you are being diagnosed with a blighted ovum after IVF, please take a look at this article I put together: Misdiagnosed Miscarriage After IVF
and why I just believe a blighted ovum should NOT be diagnosed before nine weeks at the earliest and the UK's new guidelines support this

I'm hoping that low progesterone is my only problem this time and that it will help my numbers start to rise a little quicker.
