Hi!
It would be ideal if your progesterone level was over 15.  That is the number we shoot for.
Your rising beta HCG is a good sign, but I would probably put you on progesterone supplementation--it may not help anything, but there is really no down side risk either.

Just speak to your doctor directly and tell him/her of your concerns--they are legitimate. If the doctor doesn't listen, you may want to consider another doctor!

Good luck!

Dr B.
