Had a miscarriage in the past due to low progesterone levels. Advised to take duphaston. What should be the dosage?

Hello Doctor, I had a miscarriage recently, at the start of 3rd month pregnancy(10th week). Its a typical case of low progestrone, because I have been tested for hormone levels before pregnancy and the doctor said I have low progestrone and suggested to take duphaston everyday once confirmed pregnancy. I am pregnant now, and not able to reach my the question is what should be my dosage, to avoid another miscarriage ..even if I get a doctor and get my blood tested, and the result analysis, the process will take around 2 -3 weeks, which might be too late please suggest.

duphaston is progesterone which will help in maintenance of pregnancy,
normally it will be taken as 10mg tablet for once a day. so you can start that as your doctor previously prescribed it to you,
then after consulting your doctor this time if she thinks the dose should be be changed then you can follow her advice,
meanwhile continue to take folic acid and other multi vitamin supplements.
take care.
