Waiting to miscarry Doctor won't help my pregnancy

I am currently 4+2. My hcg started doubling every 38 hours, then 48 hours, now 54 hours. They remain quite low at 99 (4+1). My progesterone has dropped from 29.7 (nearly) to 22.6 (about 7ng). My breasts are back to normal but cervix remains high and temp is still up. I know this means miscarriage is impending, although GP is driving me insane saying my numbers are still encouraging. I asked for progesterone support but they spoke to gynae who say they never give it. This will be my third early miscarriage in 4 months, due to, I assume, low progesterone.

I feel so angry that there may be a solution here and the doctors won't help me. I'm so sad that this pregnancy won't end in a baby again. I'm so worried that if they won't support my progesterone that I'll never have a successful pregnancy.

Just wanting some support while I wait for the bleeding to start really...

So sorry to hear this, I have also had my third early miscarriage between 4 and 5 weeks last month. It's shit. I think you need to find a recurrent miscarriage specialist in your area and either get a referral from your gp or just go privately. This is what I did this time I was so fed up of the same thing happening. He gave me a prescription for clexane and progesterone from BFP and a daily baby aspirin to start now. He said that there is no proof it works but he says he sees results wether it's placebo or what I don't know.

Apologies for the essay but hope my ramble helps flowers

@Thumbellini thanks for your support. I have an appointment in March which was arranged after my last mc. Unfortunately it is with the same team who refused to give progesterone when we asked this time. I have been taking baby aspirin. At the moment this one is still clinging on, tests are still darkening, so maybe there is a little bit of hope. I'm very much still expecting the worst but keeping everything crossed!

Your HCG is fine for where you are! I'm not sure about progesterone levels as never had mine tested but I would say that extra progesterone is unlikely to save a pregnancy if it is failing as the low progesterone would likely to be a symptom of rather than a cause of a failing pregnancy.

Good luck! I really hope it all works out for you!!
