      I am scheduled for IVF in May but had a positive hcg test unexpectedly (conceived naturally). However, my hcg is going down.

      hcg 17dpo= 217
      hcg 20dpo= 40

      The doctor told me to go off progesterone suppository and wait for a miscarriage. I am just wondering is it worthwhile for another test in 2-3 days to rule out any lab error or even give the embryos a few more days before going off progesterone. The doctor didn't even give me the option. So I guess in the doctor's eyes, a miscarriage is a sure thing. I searched the web and the only thing I see a hcg going down and going up is vanishing twins. But I don't think my first beta indicates two pregnancy.

      Should I go off progesterone right away?
