I am brand new to this forum and am so happy to have found it. I am 5 weeks pg and had so blood tests done Tuesday after minor spotting Monday night. My HCG levels have continued to double and as of Tuesday were at 7000, my progesterone levels, however, have dropped. Here are my levelss so far:
Mine dropped as well although my levels were much lower than yours (20 range). They even got below 20. (I'm now 14 weeks and all is fine). I had the same question as you - is it normal for progesterone to drop?what causes it to drop? - and got the answer that progesterone has normal fluctuation and it's nothing to worry about. Your levels are so high there definitely seems to be nothing to worry about. Some doctors don't even test for progesterone because all it does is cause people to worry needlessly.
