HCG Levels rising and progesterone levels falling

HCG Levels rising and progesterone levels falling

Postby geekster » Fri Aug 20, 2010 10:24 am

I had a miscarriage in sept '09. I am pregnant again, as soon as i got pregnant this time the doc scheduled a blood test on a friday and then again on a monday. he called and let me know that all is well and he is happy with the results. then a week later i had another test done and he called back to let me know that the progesterone numbers are dropping but HCG levels are rising beautifully. he prescribed 200mg of progesterone that i am taking. I then asked him if we can redo the test in a few days and his response was "200mg is the most we can prescribe and we dont do follow up testing for progesterone levels" I asked him, "for my sanity, can we redo the test so that I can sleep at night" he said he would have to get back to me. my question is, is it normal for doctors NOT to monitor patients after prescribing progesterone? and is 200mg the maximum prescribed by doctors?
