I went thru IVF and had my first BETA (9 days post 5 day transfer) with HCG at 39. Two days later I had 2nd BETA at 83, but my progesterone is at 10.6 which my Dr says is low. I have been on Crinone 8% vaginal gel twice a day. My Dr suggested I maybe do a once a week progesterone injection but then realized I am allergic to peanuts so he said don't do it. He told me to just continue my Crinone gel twice a day and if I started to bleed to call them.
I am really worried about my low # but could it be due to I'm using Crinone gel instead of injections? Should I be concerned about miscarrying and is there anything else that can prevent this if this is the case? I go back in 2 days for another bloodtest to test for HCG.
Please let me know if this level is safe to carry through pregnancy. Today, I am 11 days post 5 day transfer.
Thank you so much,
