Is low progesterone at 8 weeks a sign of a non viable pregnancy?

Hi, I was just wondering if low progesterone at 8 weeks and 3 days is a sign of a non viable pregnancy? My ob is just about to start me on progesterone pessaries and I am slightly nervous that it is all a waste of time. I had a scan at 8 weeks and there was a fetus with a strong heart rate of 172bpm but I can`t help feeling anxious.
Thanks
Angela

Answer: Hi Angela, Thank you for your enquiry. Try not to worry about this for now as I am sure that your doctor would advise you if things were not going well. The treatment is probably very appropriate for you. Best wishes, Alex
