Progesterone Level at 5 weeks pregnant

I'm 5 weeks pregnant and progesterone levels came back at 8.77. They've put me on progesterone supplements. My question is, am I doomed for a miscarriage with a result of 8.77 at 5 weeks?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you are having symptoms of increased cramps, bleeding/spotting, increased abdominal or low back pain, then these could signal possibility of impending miscarriage. Follow your treating doctor’s instructions. Take the supplements prescribed as instructed to help in preventing miscarriage and carrying on with pregnancy smoothly. Be in regular follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist. Report any abnormal symptoms immediately. Be in complete bedrest. Drink plenty of water. Avoid caffeinated or carbonated beverages. Avoid having intercourse until issues are solved out. Avoid lifting any heavy object, doing any tough household chores or climbing stairs.
Take care.
