I had my 2nd BT today, HCG has doubled and is now at 1266 (yay) but my progesterone level has dropped from 46 on Tuesday to 28 today. Freaking out now. I'm on 1600mg per day. Getting retested on Sat to see what levels are then.
Does anybody know if Dr M gives progesterone injections? My FS said she doesn't do them! I called G to ask for Dr M's advice, waiting to hear back.

Hi Ladies! I have been reading for a while, learning a lot from your experiences, lifting my hopes up whenever I read a successful pregnancy.
This is my story:
Oct. 2006 - first little angel lost @ 12 weeks
2009 - DH and I got married
Feb 2010 - 2nd little angel lost @ 8 weeks
Feb 2011 - 3rd little angel lost @ 9 weeks
I have only learned about immune issues during my third pregnancy (2011). But it was too late, lost my angel then. It was so heartbreaking, coz @ 8 weeks HB was still strong. After that, DH and I decided to take a break.
Though we're on a break, I researched more about autoimmune issues. At the start of this year, we decided to give another try. Under Dr. M, I was diagnosed with autoimmune issues. (blood clotting and me&DH's matching LAT?) After 2 sessions of LIT, and taking prednisones, we we;re given a go by Dr. M.
DH and I are now ttc. I will be posting more frequently now that i'm on 2ww.
So there ladies, thanks for reading my story. It feels great knowing I am not alone in this journey. to all!

@Legwarmer, that's great! Woohoo! Try not to stress too much about the progesterone. Mine dropped from 63 to 55 and then the next it was 100. Apparently it can be influenced by eating! I was on 2400mg/day progesterone so I'm sure Dr M will bump you up if he's worried. If you don't hear from them today id do an extra one anyway. Good luck!
@inaynanay, welcome. Very sorry to hear about your losses. I hope that Dr M's treatment does the trick for you. Best of luck for the 2ww.
ladybug that does make me feel a bit better. I will be upping my dose myself anyway I think, to see if that makes a difference. Wow, 2400mg a day, that's good to know I can go up so much more if I need to.
@PreciousHeart thanks for the info 😊 I will def ask dr m next time I see him hoping my current cycle wil be my BFP and last cycle, I've tried googling the difference between the two but nothing exact comes up just that they target different kinds of infections @Legwarmer so happy ur levels have doubled that such amazing news massive congratulations again 😊 @inananay hope ur immune treatment is what u need to get ur BFP I have everything crossed for you this cycle
@PreciousHeart .. Thank you, that helps so I can tell the nurse the same. I'm doing a transfer tomorrow and I'm nervous as ever!! FS only wants to transfer 1 x day 5 but I would love to so 2. But he said in our condition, if NK cells are strong, it will kill one or two embryos! Don't know how true this is??
